Regulations for taking a pet dog or cat to Bahrain

Bahrain does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:

This completes a passport for your dog or cat to enter Bahrain.

Dog Passport Bahrain

Puppies and kittens must have two doses of all above vaccines. The first dose must be given when 2 months old** and the 2nd dose given 2-3 weeks later. The puppy or kitten can then be shipped 4 weeks after the 2nd dose is given. **Please note that, even though Bahrain's regulations specify a rabies vaccination at 2 months, the recommended age for rabies vaccination is 3 months.

Puppies less than 3 months are not permitted entry into Bahrain.

Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet will be refused entry or returned to the country of origin or placed in quarantine, all at the expense of the person responsible for your pet.

Inspection: All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the port of entry to Bahrain. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.

Other Animals: Birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits are not subject to requirements of rabies vaccination, but may have to meet other requirements and should have a health certificate to enter Bahrain. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.

Veterinary Certificate: All countries have unique veterinary certificates. This form may differ from the veterinary certificate issued by veterinarians in the United States. (APHIS 7001) It is an essential part of the cat or dog passport.

Pets other than dogs and cats must have an Import Permit. Let me know if you need one.

To bring a pet to Bahrain, it will need to be vaccinated against rabies, canine distemper, parvo, hepatitis and Leptospira.

Try Egypt Air as they accepts pets in the cabin and fly between India and Bahrain. You can find requirements for bringing your cat to Bahrain here:

Moving from Canada to Bahrain February. My question pertains to a cat blood titer test. The site says if no blood titer test, then a two hour quarantine, says an automatic thirty day quarantine from Canada. Any idea which is correct. I won't do the blood titer if the only quarantine is two hours - the cost is very high, but will do it if we can avoid a longer quarantine. Any idea what is the reality of cat quarantine. Canada is a low incidence rabies country. Thanks!

Hi Christine - we have shipped many animals to Bahrain from the US and the animals have been held for only 2 hours while saliva and other testing is done. Expat is not incorrect in their information because Baharin's regulation states that animals from non-rabies free countries without titer tests will be checked into quarantine, but it is our understanding that there are countries where 30 day quarantine is not applied. I have requested clarification with the Head of Veterinary Quarantine to make sure Canada is on the list of countries and will post an update.

PetTravel thank you for this. I am on the fence about taking a job because I really wish to bring my dog, but I would not allow her to be subjected to a 30 day quarantine with her temperment. I honestly don't think I could go somewhere without her, but this seems like I may be able to bring her after all. Is there a pet transport company you would recommend for travel to Bahrain?

Ryan Elwell I did get a response from the Head of Veterinary Quarantine in Bahrain and here it is verbatum: The Rabies test will be done in airport direct when the animals arrive Bahrain and release from the airport if the result is negative & the consignment must be accompanied by the original documents we need (Import Permit + government Health Certificate + Vaccination ) Your pet must have all vaccinations (canine distemper, pravo, leptospira, and hepatitis). If you would like an agent to handle the transaction I would be happy to help (

Egypt airline

Lanbari Tarik Both EgyptAir and Gulf Air have direct flights from Caifo to Bahrain. EgyptAir may allow your pet to travel in the cabin as long as it is not too big. Both airlines provide checked baggage service.

Does anyone know how much it costs to take a cat from Bahrain to London... Roughly ?
Posted on 2014-04-01 16:13:25.0
Gail - you should contact British Airways (IAC Cargo) or Gulf Air Cargo for the cost. Your pet must travel as manifest cargo and a licensed agent is required to transport your pet from the plane to the Animal Reception Center which adds to the cost. Each airline has different prices, so best to contact directly.
