A pet passport is a document that certifies an animal’s identity, as well as its health status including rabies vaccinations and microchip information. Pet passports are primarily used in the EU. This document is signed by an approved veterinarian as part of a procedure that allows cats and dogs moving between EU countries to enter without quarantine requirements. When pets with passports are traveling within the EU countries (including Switzerland), the EU becomes borderless. When a pet enters from outside of the EU, a passport is not issued, rather, the documentation required is a vaccination booklet. It is very important to maintain accurate and up-to-date health records for your pets, particularly if you anticipate travel. Our counselors will guide you through the process every step of the way and can answer your questions about pet passports, as well as what import and export documents, vaccinations and treatments are required based on your pet’s itinerary.
