Pet Passport Denmark
European Union (EU) Regulations for taking a pet dog, cat or
ferret to Denmark from within the EU, from rabies
free countries or from a
country with a low incidence of rabies.
Denmark does not quarantine healthy pets (cats, dogs and ferrets) from the above countries having resided there for the preceeding six (6) months that meet the following requirements in this order:
- ISO 11784/11785 compliant 15 digit
If your pet's microchip is not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, you can
bring your own
- Rabies vaccination no sooner than 21 days* prior to entry and not more than
the expiration date of the manufacturer of the vaccine. If your dog, cat or ferret has been
vaccinated before it was fitted with a microchip, it will have to be
vaccinated again after the microchip is implanted.
- For pets entering Denmark from a
country with a high incidence of rabies,
a Blood Titer Test administered no sooner than one month after
rabies vaccination. Samples must be processed at approved
laboratories. Assuming test results within acceptable limits, your
pet can enter Denmark 90 days after the date the blood was drawn and
avoid quarantine. This step is not required unless entering Denmark from
a high rabies country.
- Within 10 days of travel, an accredited veterinarian must
then complete the bi-lingual
Annex II for Denmark
for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United
States or Canada. If you are not traveling from either of these
countries, endorsement is not required unless your country mandates
- A copy of the Rabies Certificate and Blood Titer Test results should also be included for endorsement (if applicable).
This completes a passport for your dog, cat or ferret to enter Denmark.
*After the first vaccination and waiting period, you can enter Denmark whenever you like as long as booster vaccinations are given on time and you continue to meet the other entry requirements.
Banned Breeds: the following breeds are not permitted to enter Denmark: Pitt Bull Terrier, Tosa Inu, American Staffordshire Terrier, Fila Brasileiro, Dogo Argentino, American Bulldog, Boerboel, Kangal, Central Asian Shepherd Dog (ovtcharka), Caucasian Shepherd Dog (ovtcharka), South Russian Shepherd Dog (ovtcharka), Tornjak, and Sarplaninac.
Puppies, Kittens and Ferrets: Unvaccinated puppies and kittens can enter Denmark from a EU country or a rabies controlled country with an Application Permit and Breeder Declaration. If your puppy is less than 8 weeks or your kitten is less than 12 weeks, it must be accompanied by its Mother. The puppy or kitten must be transported to a resident of Denmark by the owner or someone representing the owner. It must not be intended for sale or further transfer of ownership. It must be microchipped and accompanied with an EU pet passport or health certificate issued in the country of origin.
If you want to transit your pet through Billund or Copenhagen Airports, then a transit permit will be required.
Unvaccinated ferrets can only enter Denmark from another EU country.
When entering Denmark for commercial purposes such as breeding or sale, pets require additional forms and different rules apply.
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
Denmark. 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 Denmark. 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.
