What Can You Bring Into Singapore?

Many travellers may wish to bring in food, animals, fish and plants into
Singapore, but do you know that there are restrictions on what you can bring in

The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) is responsible for ensuring a
resilient supply of safe food and safeguarding the health of animals and plants for
the well-being of both Singaporeans and our visitors. You can help us by
observing the guidelines on the types, quantities and sources of food, animals,
fish and plants that you bring into Singapore.
