The rules for pet travel are different for different countries and should be fully read and understood before plans to travel are finalized. It is vitally important to view the most current detailed advice on DEFRA Pet Travel Scheme website before traveling with your pet.
If you are going to travel with your pet, make sure you contact your vet at least a month before departure: a rabiesvaccination is required in each country and you must wait 21 whole days from the date of the rabies vaccination before travelling. The pet also needs a identification microchip.
Some countries require a blood test: the vet must take the blood sample at least 30 days after the rabies vaccination (the date of vaccination counts as day 0 not day 1).You must wait 3 calendar months from the date the blood sample was taken before travelling. The vet must give you a copy of the test results. These must show that the vaccination was successful. You don’t have to wait 3 months if your pet was vaccinated, blood tested and given a pet passport in the EU before travelling to an unlisted country.
Some countries also requires a tapeworm treatment (dogs only).
