Pet Passport Bahrain
REGULATIONS FOR TAKING A PET DOG OR CAT TO
Bahrain does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:
You must first obtain an Import Permit prior to bringing your pet to Bahrain. Your pet must also be microchipped with a 15 digit ISO pet microchip. If your pet's microchip is not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, you can bring your own microchip scanner.
Dogs must be vaccinated against rabies, canine distemper, parvo, hepatitis and Leptospira. Cats must receive the rabies vaccine and the tri-cat vaccines.
Your veterinarian must also administer a Blood Titer Test in order to avoid quarantine.
After the vaccinations are completed, a USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must then complete the Bahrain Veterinary Certificate for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are traveling from another country, the Governmental Authority should endorse the forms. A copy of the Rabies Certificate and Blood Titer Test should also be included. A Ticks & Tapeworm Test must be administered by your veterinarian just prior to travel. This completes your cat or dog passport for Bahrain.
Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet may be refused entry and the relevant authority in consultation with an authorized veterinarian can decide to return the pet home, or place your cat or dog in quarantine at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for the pet, or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be arranged.
All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.
Many countries have a unique veterinary certificates. This form may differ from the International Veterinary Certificate issued by veterinarians in the United States. (APHIS 7001) It is an essential part of the cat or dog passport.
