Pet Passport France

Dog Passport France

European Union (EU) regulations for taking a pet dog, cat or ferret to France from within the EU, from rabies free countries or from countries with a low incidence of rabies.

France 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:

  1. ISO 11784/11785 compliant 15 digit pet microchip. If your pet's microchip is not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, you can bring your own microchip scanner.
     
  2. 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.
     
  3. For pets entering France 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 France 90 days after the date the blood was drawn and avoid quarantine. This step is not required unless entering France from a high rabies country.
     
  4. Within 10 days of travel, a USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must then complete the bi-lingual Annex II for France for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are traveling from another country, endorsement is not required unless your country mandates it.
     
  5. A copy of the Rabies Certificate and Blood Titer Test results should also be included for endorsement (if applicable).
This completes a pet passport for your dog, cat or ferret to enter France.

Dog Passport Andorra

*After the first vaccination and waiting period, you can enter France whenever you like as long as booster vaccinations are given on time and you continue to meet the other entry requirements.

When entering an EU Country for commercial purposes such as breeding or sale, pets require additional forms and different rules apply.

Restricted Breeds:  France will not permit the import of the following dog breeds: Boerboel, Pitt Bull, Rottweiler, and Staff Terriers. The following breeds must be a Registered Pedigree. Crossbreeds are not permitted: Mastiff and Japanese Tose Inu.

Puppies and Kittens: Unvaccinated puppies and kittens under 3 months of age are not permitted to enter France. 

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 France. 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 France. 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 (CITIES).  You will need to apply for additional permits if this is the case. Search their database. Over 180 countries participate and enforce CITIES regulations. Read more about CITIES.

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.

You did not mention a microchip. That is a requirement for both France and the UK and must be inserted prior to a current vaccination. You will also need an Annex II form for France and the UK and a tapeworm test for the UK if your pet is a dog.

I'd like to bring my cats with me from Hong Kong to France. They are all vaccinated but do not have microchips yet, can I buy the 15digit microchips here online and ask my vet in HK to do the insertion? Is it workable? Also, may I know whether the forms, i.e. the pet passport package, can be used for my case? Anything else I need to pay attention to? Would you please give me some advices? Thank you very much!

I would like to take my dog to the UK from Brazil. I would like to fly on the same flight as her although she would need to go in the cargo hold due to her size. She has a microchip, has had the anti-rabies vaccine, will have a blood test done after 30 days to make sure the anti-rabies worked, will have tapeworm and ticks treatments done before we can travel. And we'll respect the 90 days after the blood-test to travel with her. We would arrive in Paris and take a ferry to the UK. Do you believe the authorities at the port in the UK would accept her or can pets only arrive at an airport in London?

Rosaline - your cats must be microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies (in that order) at least 21 days prior to entering France. Then, within 10 days of travel, the Annex II is filled out by a licensed veterinarian. The pet passport package has instructions and all the forms you will need. http://www.pettravelstore.com/pet-passport-france/

No, a titer test is not required. Your kitty must be microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies at least 21 days prior to entry to France. (in that order) An Annex II form endorsed by the USDA within 10 days of travel will be required as well. Get a health certificate as well.

If you can prove that your dog's rabies vaccination had not expired prior to the microchip insertion, and Olive has been revaccinated after the microchip was inserted, you are not subject to the 21 day wait. This is published in gov.uk regulations.

As long as you have documentation that the vaccination was done after the chip was inserted, you will be fine. If not, have the vet revaccinate your dog. If your dog is in Spain, get a blue pet passport from your vet and you are good to go.

My cat has a French pet passport, we have been living in France since 2011. We returned with him to the United States in November 2013 for a visit over the holidays; we are returning to France in Feb. 2014; his rabies vaccination is current, he has the required microchip, etc. Will we still need the Annex II form - I know he will need the airline form.

In theory the EU pet passport is good forever if the pet never visits a country with a high incidence of rabies and the vaccination is kept current. France is pet friendly so you should be fine returning with that and a health certificate. However, I would consider getting the Annex II form completed in the abundance of caution.You should ask your airline as well whether they expect to see it when you check in.

It is difficult to answer your question not knowing what country you are traveling to France from. Are you flying or driving? EU regulations state that pets entering France must be microchipped and vaccinated for rabies at least 21 days prior to entering unless you have proof that the mother was fully vaccinated prior to giving birth. If not, then 3 months is the normal age the rabies vaccination is given. You will need an EU passport if you reside in the EU or an Annex II form if you do not. There could be more requirements depending on the country to you are traveling to France from.

It is the lawof Regulation No. 998/2003 to have your pet microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies if you plan to travel within the EU with your pet. I cannot quote your French law, but considering there has been a recent incident of rabies in France, it is a very good idea to get one regardless as the disease is fatal if left untreated.

As long as you are not changing airlines in France, you do not have to leave the secure area of the airport, enter the country and meet their requirements. If your cat travels in the hold, keep the layover around 2 hours and the airline will hold them and transfer to the next plane. In that way, they will transit France and not enter the country.

Danielle - in order to take your cats to France, they must be microchipped with a 15 digit ISO compliant chip, then vaccinated for rabies (in that order). Your vet should be able to scan your cats and get their microchip number. If it is less than 15 digits, then it is not ISO compliant and you will need to carry your own scanner or have your cats re-chipped. Don't forget to have them vaccinated after they are re-chipped, if that is necessary. You will also need a USDA endorsed Annex II form for France. You can find ISO compliant chips, scanners and other travel items in our store, PetTravelStore.com.

Hi Terrie - you can find export requirements for Australia here: http://www.daff.gov.au/biosecurity/export/live-animals/companion As for France, you will need to have your cat microchipped with an ISO compliant chip, then vaccinated for rabies at least 21 days prior to entering France. If your pet is currently vaccinated when the microchip is inserted, the 21 day wait does not apply. Within 10 days of travel, a licensed vet will complete the Annex II form for France.

PetTravel Thanks, we checked with the USDA, their website now states that a pet traveling with a previously issued EU pet passport, returning to the EU from the U.S., does not need the Annex II form (this is new from the last time I checked the site in Dec. 2013). It also states that the if the US veterinarian did anything, like new vaccinations, it could enter the info in the EU pet passport....BUT, just to make sure, we're getting the Annex II form.

Zuzana Kopincova The EU regulations do not specifically address that they do or do not accept the 3 year vaccine, but they do mention that the vaccine must be current (not expired) and it is required to list the manufacturer and expiration date. France, being a member of the EU, has adopted these regulations.

Zuzana Kopincova The EU regulations do not specifically address that they do or do not accept the 3 year vaccine, but they do mention that the vaccine must be current (not expired) and it is required to list the manufacturer and expiration date. France, being a member of the EU, has adopted these regulations.

Can anyone confirm that to go to France the Rabies injection has to be annually? Not every 3 or 2 years?

The EU does not specify the term of the vaccination, only when it was given and if it has expired according to manufacturer specifications.

We travel each year to France. Every year my vet recommends a rabbies booster jab . Is this necessary as the date written in the passport for renewal is always 2/3 years !

Beverley - the EU does not address whether the vaccine is good for 1 or 3 years. What the EU does require is the manufacturer of the vaccine and the expiration date. As long as the manufacturer's expiration for the rabies vaccine has not passed, there should not be a problem.

If we want to take our dog from Turkey to France on holidays this June, what are the requirements? He had his rabies shot in January this year and the RNATT test three weeks later. He also has a microchip which was inserted about five years ago.

Netty - the EU considers Turkey to be a high rabies country. Their procedure for entering the EU from high rabies countries is as follows: your dog must have been vaccinated for rabies after the microchip was inserted and the rabies vaccinations must have been kept current. The RNATT test should be no less than 30 days after the first rabies vaccination after the chip was inserted. Assuming the results are within acceptable limits, you can enter the UK 3 months after the date that your vet took the blood sample. You will need an Annex II form for France completed by a veterinarian licensed by the government within 10 days of entry.

Hi Sara - we understand that France does not permit unvaccinated puppies or kittens to enter the country. If you enter France at a Border Inspection Post, this may be a problem. Denmark will permit it , however, if you and your puppy are traveling to Denmark to reside permanently, then you will need an application to the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration. You can find details here: http://www.foedevarestyrelsen.dk/english/ImportExport/Travelling_with_pet_animals/Dogs_cats_ferrets/Pages/puppies_kittens.aspx Hope this helps.

Hi Stewart - your veterinarian will have the info regarding your pet's last rabies shot. It must have been done AFTER a microchip was inserted else you will need to have your Lab vaccinated for rabies after the microchip is/was inserted, then wait 21 days. If you are traveling with your pet's EU pet passport, the only other thing you will need is a tapeworm test between one and five days of travel.

With an EU pet passport updated by your vet within 10 days of travel, you should be set. If you can't get a passport, you will need an Annex II form for France (bi-lingual French/English) There are links on this page to instructions and forms if you need them. http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/France.cfm

Hi, I am traveling from canada to France and from there I will be traveling by ferry through the uk on to Ireland, with my german shepherd. He has his EU passport because we traveled from Ireland in 2012, so his rabies shots are still good. Do I need to still get a blood test 6 months before I travel??? All his vaccines, kennel cough and wormers and recorded in his passport, so is all I have to do before traveling is get a vet check to say he's healthy to travel and get wormer, tick and tape worm 24 hrs before we board flight???

Can you help me find information on what regulations France has on bringing pet miniature pigs into the country? Would any airline allow a miniature pig on the plane with me? Would I fill out the same forms as if he were a cat/dog to get a pet passport and health certificate from my vet? Would he still need a rabies vaccination? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

Peter - you did not mention microchip. Does your German Shepard have a 15 digit ISO compliant microchip? If so, then you will have to be sure that your pet was vaccinated at least 21 days or more AFTER the microchip was implanted and the vaccination is still current. If not, you will need to have your pet re-vaccinated after the chip is implanted. You will not need a blood titer test as long as your pet has resided in Canada for at least 6 months prior to entering the UK. What you will need to do is to have your vet complete the Annex II form for France within 10 days of import and have it endorsed by the CFIA in Canada. You can use the France form to enter the UK. One last thing to do is to have a tapeworm treatment within one to five days of entering the UK. This is not a requirement of France, but of the UK, so, if you are planning to stay in France for more than 4 days, you will need to see a vet in France for a tapeworm treatment prior to entering the UK.

Peter - a Canadian vet is not authorized to update an EU pet passport and there must be a record of a visit to the vet within 10 days of entering France, so we would recommend that your vet will out an Annex II form for France. It will be good anywhere in the EU for 4 months.

Hello. I am hoping to travel to France with my 8 month old dog and then from France to Ireland by ferry as we are moving back to the Emerald Isle from Toronto. I am looking everywhere with no luck to try and sort an EU Pet Passport for his trip on the ferry. We are currently still in Canada. He will have everything up to date, my only problem is the Pet Passport. My pup is Canadian and has never been out of Toronto. Also, what forms do I need to have sorted before heading out? I have an idea but just want to make sure. Really don't want Bentley to be cooped up for longer than needs be. Thanks!

He will have everything up to date, my only problem is the Pet Passport. My pup is Canadian and has never been out of Toronto. Also, what forms do I need to have sorted before heading out? I have an idea but just want to make sure. Really don't want Bentley to be cooped up for longer than needs be. Thanks!

Hi Emma - pets from non-EU countries must enter Ireland by air through Dublin, either on an approved airline or through their Prior Approval System. Pets can enter Ireland by ferry from France if they are residents of that country (having lived there for at least 6 months). See the paragraph titled Travel Arrangements for all Countries outside the EU on this page: http://www.agriculture.gov.ie/pets/entryrequirementsforpetsfromoutsidetheeu/

Areum - regulations for the EU do not include importing rabbits from high-rabies countries. Each EU country has its own rules, but they are only for rabies-free or rabies-controlled countries.

Emmanuelle - you will need to get an Annex II form for France completed by an accredited veterinarian in the US and endorsed by the USDA within 10 days of travel if you are residents of the US.

you mean that it's impossible to bring Rabbit from South Korea to France since it's not a rabies-free country nor rabies-controlled country?

Their regulations do not address the import of non-rabies carrying animals from a high-rabies country. You can confirm this with the Chief of Veterinary Services. isabelle.chmitelin@agriculture.gouv.fr

Hi Pet Travel! I'm planning to travel with my dog to France in the near future. Unfortunately, the ticket I was able to acquire has a 2 hour, 40 minute layover in Germany. I have procured paperwork for France, but will I also need it for Germany? And, how do Germany's requirements differ from France? I'm flying Condor to Frankfurt and then Lufthansa for the remainder, which both seem to have decent policies and reviews for pet travel. However, I noticed that other airlines (such as Air France) require an EU or French government issued pet passport-do the airlines I'm flying on require it too? Thank you for your help!

Jacqueline - are you coming to France from the Philippines? Or are you already in France? If you are coming from the Philippines, and your Yorkie has not been in France before, there is a 3-4 month preparation period. Thirty days after the rabies vaccination, your pet will need a blood titer test. Assuming good results, your Yorkie can enter France 90 days after the date the blood was drawn. You can find details here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/France.cfm. If you are already in France as a resident, you can get an EU pet passport from your vet and that will be all you need.

Samantha - It is not so much the layover as the change of airlines. The airlines do not interline pets, so if your pet is traveling as checked baggage or cargo, you will have to claim your pet and re-check them on the Lufthansa flight. This will most likely cause you to have to clear customs and enter Germany. The requirements are the same, but you will need an Annex II form for Germany if you do clear customs. This form is good for 4 months of travel in the EU. Contact Condor and find out whether they have any code sharing relationship with Lufthansa and if they would transfer your pet. If not, then I am not sure if your layover is long enough. If your pet is traveling with you in the cabin, you need to find out whether Condor and Lufthansa share the same terminal so you will not have to clear customs. Hope this helps.

Jacqueline - if you live within the Russian Federation and not part of the Republics of Moldova, Georgia, Ukraine, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan or Tajikistan, here is what you will need to do to enter France. Have your dog microchipped as soon as possible and then have your vet give your dog a rabies vaccination. (in that order, but same vet visit is ok) You will be able to enter France no sooner than 21 days after the date of vaccination (do not count the day of the vet visit in the 21 days). You will need an Annex II form for France completed by your vet within 20 days of entry to France. You can find instructions and forms should you need them: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/France.cfm

Dominique - as long as you can prove that your pet has been vaccinated for rabies after the chip was implanted, all you will need will be an Annex II form for France completed by your vet within 10 days of travel to enter France.

Hello, I am travelling with my cat by Air France from Rio (Brazil) to Paris CDG next September in the cabin. He is already microchipped (Virbac), vacinated against rabies, blood tested (within the right time frame) and I will have his vet give me his health certificate within 10 days of the flight. I have heard that I need to take this certificate to Rio GIG airport before travel. Shall I take the blood test for endorsement too? London Heathrow says some Virbac microchips fail. At the vet, they can read it ok. Shall I take my own scanner? Best regards, Viviane

Pets that have not been vaccinated for rabies are not permitted to enter France. Your Pug must be microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies, then wait 21 days prior to entering the country. BA will not accept this breed until October 1 as it is a snub-nosed breed and more sensitive to the heat than other breeds of dogs.

Hi Viviane - the airline may require a health certificate, but France requires a Annex II form (bi-lingual French/English) to be completed by your vet within 10 days of entry. You should take your titer test as it is a requirement to enter France. As for the scanner, if it does fail and British authorities cannot read it, your pet will have to start the entire program over while in quarantine. This is quite expensive and inconvenient. If taking your own scanner is a bit of insurance, it is not a bad idea.

Hi We are planning to take our dog from the UK to France in August. She is microchipped and has had her rabies jabs. We are slightly concerned after reading above that cross breads are restricted?! We were unaware of this. She was a rescue dog but we believe she is a dogue de bordeaux crossed with possibly a rotweiler. Is this going to be a problem???
