Changi Animal & Plant Quarantine Station
Changi Animal & Plant Quarantine Station (CAPQ)
All animals arriving at Changi International Airport must undergo inspection at the Changi Animal & Plant Quarantine Station (CAPQ). These include:
- Animals entering Singapore, when Singapore is their destination country
- Animals transiting Singapore for more than four hours. The maximum transit period allowed for each transshipment is 24 hours.
Directions to CAPQ are available here.
Make an appointment for your pet’s inspection by submitting a request via our Intelligent Food Approval & Safety Tracking System (iFAST). Your request must be submitted at least five days before your pet’s arrival.
Bringing your pet for inspection without making an appointment will subject you to an S$80 inspection fee.
Here are some frequently asked questions about the online inspection appointment booking process.
Clearance procedure upon pet’s arrival
Different import clearance procedures will be effected depending on whether your pet is imported as manifested cargo or excess baggage.
Detailed import clearance procedures are available here.
Inspection at CAPQ
At CAPQ, an officer will examine your pet and check the required accompanying documents. These documents include:
- The AVS-issued import licence
- Vaccination records
- The animal’s rabies antibody level laboratory report
- The government-endorsed veterinary health certificate issued by the exporting country
Pets that do not need to be quarantined will be released if they are deemed clinically healthy, and all import requirements are met.
Animals subject to quarantine
Pets that need to be quarantined will be held at CAPQ after the inspection. An AVS-appointed transport service will be arranged to send your pet to Sembawang Animal Quarantine Station (SAQS) for quarantine.
A transport fee of S$74 per dog, cat, or consignment of small mammals is applicable.
