Import licence requirements for pathogens

Each import consignment of pathogens must be accompanied by an AVS-issued import licence. In addition:

  • You must have a licence to possess veterinary biologics before importing pathogens.
  • The pathogen you import must be approved by us. Our select list of pathogens is available here.

The documents below contain more information on pathogen import requirements:

Apply for an AVS-issued import licence

Apply for an import licence for pathogens via TradeNet.

An import licence fee of S$22 is applicable per consignment. 

The application process for pathogens that you have previously imported generally takes one working day.

If you are importing pathogens for the first time, you must submit a risk assessment in the attached format to our Biologics Evaluation Committee (BEC) for import consideration. You can then e-mail the completed form to BEC Secretariat via email at animal_feedback@nparks.gov.sg.

You may proceed to apply for your import licence via TradeNet  after you have completed the application and passed the risk assessment.
