Dogs transportation to Singapore and qurantine

Hi,
I have a dog and i'm planning to move to Singapore from Italy. I've red that when arrived at the airport, the dog must stay in quarantine from up to 40 days before I can bring it at home.
Is this true? If yes, how the quarantine works? is a safe place? When my dog is in quarantine can I spend time with it? i'm really scared of this because I feared it may die.
Pls let me know
Thx

Importing pets into Singapore id quite complicated and costly. You should engage a professional pet forwarding company to handle it for you! Here is some information about the procedure:

Your dog will need to undergo 30 days of quarantine. The quarantine facilities are very good and you can go there during visiting hours (two hours a day on weekdays). It is highly unlikely that the quarantine causes harm or death.
However, many dogs don't adjust well to tropical heat and humidity, coupled with the lack of good walking areas in the crowded city state (always on a leash is the rule). If it was my dog, I would leave it at home!
