Resumption Of Aust Imports To Singapore
The Singapore Turf Club announced "permission has been given for the resumption of importation of Australian-based horses into Singapore". The Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority "has been monitoring the EI situation in Australia & worked with the Australian veterinary authorities on an import protocol which has built in additional safeguards to ensure horses imported from Australia into Singapore are free from EI. Under the import protocol that has been agreed, Australian horses to be exported to Singapore will undergo a 21-day pre-export quarantine in Australia & then a further 21-day post-arrival quarantine in Singapore. Tests, vaccinations & other veterinary requirements are also required during the quarantine period as safeguards." The 1st batch of Australian imports "is expected to arrive in Singapore in early April".
