Insurance coverage

The licensee of the following types of dogs is required to take up an insurance policy:
  • Specified dogs.
  • Any dog assessed by AVS to be aggressive and/or potentially dangerous. 


The insurance policy shall be for an amount not less than S$100,000 to cover any injury to persons or animals or damage to property that might be caused by the dog.  A copy of the insurance policy must be submitted online via PALS, within 4 weeks of licence application or within 4 weeks from the arrival of the dog in Singapore, whichever is later, and subsequently during licence renewal.

The insurance policy should be valid through the period of the dog licence. For multi-year dog licences, you should synchronise the insurance policy’s expiry date with that of the dog licence. Currently, only AVA Insurance Agency Pte Ltd provides a multi-year insurance policy.
