Bringing in pet food and feed for non-producing animals 

Every consignment of such feed must be accompanied by a cargo clearance permit, which also serves as an AVS-issued import permit.
 
The steps below will help you obtain a cargo clearance permit to import pet food and feed for non-producing animals.
 Step Description 
Step 1: Log in to TradeNet and declare the items intended for import under the appropriate HS and product codes.
If you do not have a TradeNet account, you can appoint an agent to make the declaration on your behalf.
Step 2: Upload the necessary supporting documents to your declaration. These documents include a health certificate, a manufacturer's declaration, an ingredients list, invoices, a bill of lading, or an airway bill.
 
Your TradeNet declaration will be routed to us for processing.

 

All permit applications must be submitted via TradeNet before 5.30 pm on Mondays to Thursdays, and before 5 pm on Fridays. This enables same-day processing. Applications made on Saturdays, Sundays, and Public Holidays will be processed the next working day.

 

Step 3:

Pay the S$22 permit fee (if applicable) via GIRO. Applicants must have a GIRO account with us to pay this fee.

You can check the status of your declaration via TradeNet.

Step 4: Print the cargo clearance permit.
