Pet Passport Malaysia

Dog Passport Malaysia

Regulations for taking a pet dog or cat to Malaysia

Pets entering from the United Kingdom, Eire, Northern Ireland, New Zealand, Japan and Brunei:

Quarantine: Cats and Dogs may enter Malaysia without quarantine if approved after inspection when entering from the above countries.

Pets entering from other countries except Singapore:

This completes your cat or dog passport for Malaysia.

Quarantine:
Upon arrival from any country other than Singapore and the rabies free countries listed above, your pet shall be placed in quarantine and may be vaccinated with approved anti-rabies vaccine and detained in quarantine for compulsory period of not less than seven (7) days (10 days for dogs and cats entering from Australia). Your pet will be released if found to be free of any evidence of infection. However, where deemed necessary, the quarantine period can be extended up to six (6) months based on risk assessment on a case to case basis.

Quarantine facilities for dogs and cats are available at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at Sepang, Penang International Airport, and Padang Besar (Perlis-Thai border). Those dogs and cats requiring quarantine must enter at those points.

Pets entering from Singapore:

Cats and Dogs must be at least 3 months old to enter Malaysia. Pets entering by air must do so as manifest cargo. Pets can only be imported as manifested cargo and shall be declared to the Animal Quarantine Officer at the landing point for entry clearance.

Dog Passport Malaysia

Breed Restrictions: The following breeds will not be permitted to enter Malaysia: American Pit Bull, Pit Bull Terrier, Pit Bull, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Bulldog, Neopolitan Mastiff, Japanese Tosa, Akita, Dogo Argentino and Fila Braziliero.

There are additional requirements to bring these breeds to Malaysia: Rottweiler, Doberman Pinscher, German Shepard, Belgian Shepard, East European Shepard, Bull Mastiff, Bull Terrier, and Perro de Presa Canario.

Whenever you travel to a foreign country like Malaysia, it is always advisable to carry some form of identification indicating ownership of the pet.

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 Malaysia. 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 Malaysia. 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.

Giselle - if your pet does not have a current rabies vaccination, it needs to be vaccinated for rabies at least 30 days but not more than one year prior to entry. You will need to submit a health certificate to the Consulate and also obtain an Import Permit. More details here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/philippines.cfm

You will need to get an import license from the Director General of Veterinary Services Malaysia or the State Director concerned permitting the import of these animals into the State(s) of Malaysia as well as veterinary certificate and proof of rabies vaccination. If entering from Spain, your cat will be subject to a maximum of 7 days of quarantine assuming inspection goes well. Animals are confined to cages during quarantine.

Not sure where your cat is flying to, but it is hard to keep up with the airline's pricing schedule. If you are flying with your pet, contact the reservation department of the airline with the most direct route. (do not change airlines) If your cat is flying without you, contact the cargo department of the airlines.
Posted on 2013-10-27 21:23:13.0
PetTravel
I am not sure where you are traveling to Malaysia FROM, but maybe this will help. The cost will depend on the weight of your pet and the size of the crate he/she is traveling in. If you are traveling with your pet, contact the reservation office of the airline with the most direct route. If you are not traveling with your pet, contact the cargo department. There will be quarantine, the length of time depending on where you are traveling from. Pugs are difficult to transport due to their breathing. Be sure and ask the airlines whether they carry them in cargo as many do not.

Assuming your pets meet the requirements listed here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/Malaysia.cfm to enter Malaysia from other countries, they will be quarantined for a period of between 7 and 30 days (usually 7 days unless they feel it is warranted). I do not have information as to the conditions in their quarantine facilities.

All the requirements for bringing a cat to Malaysia can be found here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/Malaysia.cfm As you are not entering the country from Singapore or a rabies free country, your pet will be quarantined for a minimum of 7 days. You can find instructions and forms by clicking the button on the page referenced above. Some Aisain countries do not permit visitation during quarantine, but I am unsure if Malaysia is one of them.

Jim Clatterbaugh The United States is not on the list of countries from which Malaysia will waive quarantine. If you fulfil all of the requirements, your pet is subject to 7 days of quarantine.

Hello. I'm from Malaysia. I want to adopt cat but they are from Hong Kong. The owner at the Hong Kong said that i have to pay for the transportation fee. Can you tell me how can i pay for the transportation fee? Thank you.
Posted on 2013-12-21 12:40:58.0
PetTravel
There are strict requirements for importing a pet to Malaysia from Hong Kong. It will need an Import Permit. microchip, veterinary certificate and will be subject to a minimum of 7 days. If the person you are communicating with says that the only charge will be the transportation fee, I would be rather suspiscious. There are a lot of pet scams on the internet. If they are asking you to wire money and you cannot speak to them on the telephone, I would suggest that you do not pursue this transport. If you know this person well, then you would arrange for the import including the requirements above. You will also need to contact the cargo department of an airline that serves both Hong Kong and the airport in Malaysia where you are located.Keep the kitty on the same airline the entire route. If you need instructions and forms, you can find them here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/Malaysia.cfm

Hi I am currently living in Thailand but moving to Australia in a few months. The Australian government does not allow pets from Thailand unless quarantined and vaccinated from an approved country, such as Malaysia. Is it possible to travel from Thailand and have this done and then travel to Australia? How much would this cost? And how long would it take?
Posted on 2014-01-03 02:17:57.0
PetTravel
Heather - your pet will be subject to quarantine when entering Malaysia. The quarantine facilities (3 of them) are located on the western peninsula of Malaysia. Australia will only permit import of animals from eastern Malaysia. Assuming the transit between the two is without restrictions, it may work, but we would suggest that you find an agent to help you with this as we are not familiar with local restrictions. You can search by country for a licensed pet transporter at IPATA.org. Sorry I could not be of more assistance.
Posted on 2014-01-03 15:40:54.0
PetTravel
Your dog will not be subject to quarantine when entering Malaysia, but regulations indicate that you will need to clear your pet in Kuala Lumpur prior to flying to Kuching. You will need to meet export regulations for Australia. (daff.gov.au) and contact the cargo department of an airline that serves the entire route if you are not accompanying your pet.

German Shepard breeds are banned in Malaysia. Generally, crosses are also banned (mixed breeds). Resemblance plays a part - how much does your dog resemble a German Shepard?. Certainly, your vet would put "mixed breed" on the vet certificate. Even with this, entry cannot be guaranteed.

Aldemara - British Airways has a flight through Heathrow, then Hong Kong to Penang, but they will require an agent to handle the transport. There is a 6 hour layover in Heathrow and that may be too long for them to hold your pets for transit. You would need to contact IAG cargo for that information. Most all the flights we could find into Penang go through Heathrow and Singapore or Amsterdam and Kuala Lampur. Considering this route is difficult, I would suggest that you contact an agent to do the routing for you. Try checking with IPATA.org. You can search by country.

Hi, we have a mixed ridgeback cross puppy ... We are currently in Nairobi, Kenya and looking to move to KL in June. I have read all your information online, can you confirm,as she is mixed breed, its unlikely she will be granted entry? Also, are there any additional restrictions coming from Africa? Thanks
Posted on 2014-02-20 01:54:06.0
PetTravel
Hello John - a licensed vet can do the blood test but it has to be sent to an approved laboratory. The regulations for cats is the same for both countries except they have different Annex II forms. And, yes, the Annex II form for France is bi-lingual. Each form must be completed within 10 days of entry to that country, so if you are going to stay in France more than 10 days, you will need to visit a vet there prior to entering the UK. You can find details on taking your pet to the UK and France with links for instructions and forms here: http://www.pettravel.com/passportnew.cfm

Hi Amanda - not sure what your ridgeback is crossed with, but it is not a breed that is banned in Malaysia. All of the requirements are listed under the "Pets Entering from All Countries Except Singapore". (http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/Malaysia.cfm) Be sure and bring your pet's vaccination history and be sure both the rabies and other normal vaccinations have been given. What may vary is the length of quarantine imposed. That may be extended depending on the assessment of veterinary officials.
Posted on 2014-02-20 02:55:37.0

Hello - you should direct your question to the Department of Veterinary Services in Malaysia. We are not aware of waivers being granted for older, disabled or service animals.

There are no published waiver of these requirements for pets entering from Jakarta. Most times, the designation of rabies status is by country, not city, state or province.

So far I have done all the documents that needed to be done in Taiwan now all thats left is the documents at Malaysia. Import Permit and other documents. G-Pet.com does this service and it cost about RM1750 but the import permit spelled my name wrongly so I told him to correct it and then I would proceed the payment but he insist by saying he doesnt want to pay again and say it will be alright with the current one.

Helle - to take your pet to Denmark, it will need a microchip, then rabies vaccination (in that order), then a 30 day wait, then a Blood Titer Test. Assuming acceptable results, your pet can enter Denmark with a Denmark Annex II form completed within 10 days of travel and a tapeworm test done between one and five days of travel. You can find details here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/Denmark.cfm To return to Malaysia, you will need an Import Permit, proof of rabies vaccination and a veterinary certificate. Most likely you will need to see a vet in Denmark for the veterinary certificate, but you should inquire from your Director General of Veterinary Services in Malaysia about that and the Import Permit.

Lakovina - yes, your cat will be placed in quarantine when landing in Kuala Lumpur. You will need proof of microchip, rabies vaccination and a health certificate issued within 10 days of travel.

Hi Jaydee - you will need to check with the Bureau of Animal Industry in the Philippines to verify the export requirements for live animals. Find an airline that serves the entire route and make sure they permit pets in the cabin. Vietnam Airlines may be an option for you.

Hi, I would like to know about the procedure at MAQIS that we have to go through before leaving Malaysia (from KLIA) for UK via France. I believe we need to get an export certificate and some health examination there? But exactly how we go about it, and if there is anything else I don't know. Also, is there anything we need to obtain from the UK prior to departure? Thanks

John - email fauzidah@moa.gov.my for the process you follow to export your pet from Malaysia. Assuming you have met regulations for the UK (microchip, rabies vaccination, titer tetst 90 days prior to entry and Annex II form, also tapeworm treatment if you are traveling with a dog) a question would be, are you transiting through France or staying there and for how long?

Hello Winnie - according to Malaysian regulations, your cat will be subject to not less than 7 days of quarantine. The facilities are at KL if that is where you will be entering the country.

Aticus - your pet must be accompanied by its owner and be imported for the purposes of a guard dog. You need to make an official written application to the Director of State Veterinary Services (State DVS) in advance for approval to import. The application must include microchip details, age, breed, sex, country of origin, contact number, ownership/pedrigee papers, and place of residence. The residence or premise where the dog will be kept after import will be inspected by officer’s of the respective State Veterinary Department to verify the suitability of the premise and the facilities such as kennel, size of the compound, safety and control of the dog. An official approval letter signed by the Director of the State Veterinary Department and an import permit will be issued if the residence or premise is found to be suitable for the dog.

Winnie Chan If your cats are entering Malaysia from countries that require quarantine (like Taiwan) they must enter the country via Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at Sepang or Penang International Airport where quarantine facilities are available.
