Pet Passport Bahrain
Regulations for taking a pet dog or cat to Bahrain
Bahrain does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:
- Import Permit
- 15 digit ISO compliant 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.
- If you are entering Bahrain from a rabies free country your pet will not need a Blood Titer Test.
- If you are entering Bahrain from a country with a low incidence of rabies, your veterinarian must administer a Blood Titer Test in order to avoid a 2 hour quarantine.
- If you are entering Bahrain from a high rabies country, your pet will need a Blood Titer Test. Even with a Blood Titer Test, your pet will be taken to a quarantine center where it will undergo inspection after clearing customs.
- After the vaccinations are completed, a USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must then complete the Veterinary Certificate for Bahrain 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 responsible for the import and export of animals should endorse the forms.
- A copy of the Rabies Certificate and Blood Titer Test should also be included for endorsement.
- A Ticks & Tapeworm Test must be administered by your veterinarian just prior to travel.
- Unaccompanied pets traveling as manifest cargo will need a health certificate issued within 10 days of travel. Your airlines may also require a health certificate even if your pet is traveling with you in the cabin or as checked baggage.
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.
