Bangladesh Pet Passport & Import Regulations
Bangladesh does not quarantine cats and dogs that meet the following requirements. All requirements also apply to service and emotional support animals.
Dogs and cats must be vaccinated against rabies no less than 30 days and not more than one year prior to entry.
Two original copies of the Veterinary Certificate for Bangladesh must be completed by an licensed veterinarian. Although it is not required, we recommend that a USDA or CFIA licensed veterinarian complete the form and you have it endorsed by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are traveling from another country, the Governing Authority responsible for the import and export of animals should endorse the forms.
If your pet is arriving with you as checked baggage, a Notice of No Objection must be obtained from the Department of Livestock Services and permission from the Office of the Chief Controller of Imports and Exports.
If your pet is arriving as air cargo, then, in addition to the NOC, prior permission from Customs must be obtained and you will need a clearing agent to customs clear your pet.
Ticks and Tapeworm Treatment
A treatment for internal and external parasites is not required but recommended for dogs and cats entering Bangladesh.
Puppies and Kittens
Unvaccinated pets (dogs and cats only) under 3 months old may be able to enter Bangladesh, but there are additional regulations that must be met.
Entering Bangladesh by Air
Pets must enter or depart from Bangladesh as checked baggage or air cargo at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in Dhaka. You will need an IATA-compliant pet crate for this type of transport.
Pets may be subject to 21 days of home quarantine when entering Bangladesh.
All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the entry airport. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.
Bangladesh does not publish a list of banned breeds.
Exporting Pets Living in Bangladesh
Pets can leave Bangladesh as checked baggage or air cargo. If flying as air cargo, the services of an agent in Bangladesh are required.
Once you have the appropriate veterinary records, you will need a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Department of Livestock Services and permission from the Office of the Chief Controller of Imports and Exports.
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 Bangladesh. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.
If your pet is not a dog, cat or ferret, and especially if it is a turtle or parrot, you should verify that it is not protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). You will need to apply for additional permits if this is the case. Over 180 countries participate and enforce CITES regulations.
