Bring Matsusaka Beef and Its Products Back to Singapore!

The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan and its Singapore counterpart have agreed on a bilateral agreement on a simplified form of certificate for travelers to export beef, pork, and their products produced in Japan to Singapore for personal consumption, held in hand-carry luggage.

What does this mean?

This means that you can bring your favorite Matsusaka beef and its product back to Singapore easily without undergoing inspection at the animal quarantine services in the airport!

How does it work?

- Some shops have already made the necessary procedures in advance to secure the certificates needed for customers to bring the meat and its products back to Singapore.
- Each customer is only allowed to bring back a maximum of 5kg of beef, pork, and their products.
- The certificate will be attached with the product during purchase.
- With this certification, the product will be able to bypass customs without further inspections at animal quarantine services in the airport.
