Regulations for taking a pet, service or emotional support dog or cat to Pakistan

Pakistan does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:

For more detailed instructions and forms to create a pet passport to take your pet to Pakistan, click on the button below.

Dog Passport Pakistan

Whenever you travel to a foreign country like Pakistan, 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 Pakistan. 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: pet birds from Vietnam, South Korea, Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, South Africa, Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Turkey, Greece, Romania, Croatia, Iran, Italy Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Iraq, Bulgaria, Slovenia, France, Nigeria, Slovakia, Austria, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Germany, Afghanistan, Scotland - United Kingdom and China due to outbreaks of Avian Influenza H5N1 strain, is currently not permitted.

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 Pakistan. 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. Search their database. Over 180 countries participate and enforce CITES regulations. Read more about CITES.

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.

Pet Microchip: Although Pakistan does not require a pet microchip, we strongly recommend that you microchip your cat or dog prior to traveling. 

The information published here is a guideline for pet owners importing their pet to Pakistan. Further detail on import permits (if applicable), costs, tests and procedures are available at minimal cost at if you need them. We also stock all the equipment and accessories you will need for traveling with your pet. Same day shipping until 4:00 PM EST.

Pakistan is pretty pet friendly. Your pet will need to be vaccinated for rabies and have a recently issued health certificate.

I'm taking my cat to Pakistan, but she has a five-year rabies shot that she got just over one year ago. Will this work, or does she need another shot? And does she need any other documentation than the USDA certification?
Posted on 2013-10-23 00:40:03.0
Posted on 2013-11-02 17:30:14.0
Absolutely, you can bring a dog from Australia to Pakistan to live. Your pet will need a rabies vaccination at least 30 days and not more than 1 year prior to entry and a health certificate. There will be a problem, however, if you want to return to Australia as pets are not allowed to enter Australia directly from Pakistan.
Posted on 2013-11-09 20:16:52.0
Pakistan requires that the rabies vaccination be not more than 12 months of entry. You will need proof of rabies vaccination, your passport and a health certificate endorsed by the USDA if you are originating from the US. You will fill out an entry permit when you clear customs.

Posted on 2013-12-13 17:45:36.0
Yes you can transport your pet from the UK to Pakistan. If you are not accompanying your pet, then you need to contact the cargo department of an airline that serves both the origination and destination cities for the cost and details. Your cat must be vaccinated for rabies at least 30 days prior to entering Pakistan and must have a health certificate. If you need instructions and forms, you can find a link to them here:

How do I bring my pet cat from Pakistan to Washington DC. What forms do I need and how far in advance do I need them? ALso which is the best airline to do this? Is accompanied easier than unaccompanied?
Posted on 2014-01-17 14:56:02.0
In order to import a pet to the United States, you will need proof of rabies vaccination at least 30 days prior to entry and a health certificate. From a quick glance, it looks like Qatar Airways has a decent route. Turkish Airlines and Etihad Airways might also be possibilities. In all cases, accompanying your pet is far preferred than not and less expensive as your pet can travel as checked baggage if you accompany it versus manifest cargo.

If someone has to relocate to Uk with a cat from Pakistan, what procedure should he follow and how long will it take? kindly, reply sooner.
Posted on 2014-01-27 05:19:02.0
Mabashara - the process is the same for all EU countries when entering from a high rabies country like Pakistan. You need to have your vet microchip your cat with a 15 digit ISO compliant chip, then vaccinate for rabies. No sooner than 30 days after vaccination, your vet will administer a Blood Titer Test which will be processed by an approved laboratory. If the results are within limits, you can enter the UK with your cat 90 days after the date the blood was drawn. Within 10 days of entry, your vet will complete the Annex II form for the UK. If you need forms and instructions, there is a button for that here:
Posted on 2014-01-28 04:21:41.0
PetTravel, thanks for replying.What if, someone has to reach UK before 90 days? Can he ask any of his friends to take his cat to UK or an owner can take his cat by himself only?

Posted on 2014-01-28 07:21:54.0
Your pet must have proof of rabies vaccination at least 30 days prior to entry and a recently issued health certificate. If your pet is traveling unaccompanied, then contact the cardo department of an alirline that serves both cities. Find the most direct route then contact the cargo department of the airline.. Do not change airlines. (airplanes are ok; airlines are not as they don't interline pets.)

Your puppy will need to be vaccinated for rabies at least 30 days ahead of time and accompanied with a health certificate completed by your vet within 10 days of travel. Find an airline that flies the entire route. Do not change airlines. PIA has the best route I can find, but your puppy will have to travel as checked baggage in the hold. There is a 3 hour layover in Toronto. Contact PIA and ask about arrangements to see your pup.
Posted on 2014-01-30 04:28:39.0
If you bring your cat to the UK prior to the 90 days, it will be quarantined for the remainder of the time in the UK. You can also ask a friend to bring the cat or send it unaccompanied and you will pick it up in London.

Hi Jawad - you will need proof of rabies vaccination and a health certiicate endorsed by the governent authority responsible for the import and export of animals. A microchip is recommended.

How do you bring a dog from Pakistan to England?
Posted on 2014-04-08 10:17:28.0
Jonathan - you will need to prepare 4 months in advance to take a pet from Pakistan to England, First, your vet will implant a microchip, then vaccinate for rabies. (in that order) Then there is a minimum of 30 days wait, then your vet does a Blood Titer Test and sends the samle off to an approved laboratory. Assuming acceptable results, your pet can enter England 90 days after the date the blood was drawn. You will need an Annex II form for England and a tapeworm test. Here are details and links to instructions and forms:

Hi, thanks for your help. I wish to take my RES Turtle from Pakistan to EU. could you please advise?
Posted on 2014-05-01 01:17:05.0
Hi Spencer - yes, you will need to make sure your pet's rabies vaccination is current and carry proof of that and have a health certificate issued by a licensed veterinarian in Pakistan within 10 days of entry back to the US.
Posted on 2014-05-02 03:13:35.0
Ana - the EU does not have import requirements for other animals traveling through the EU from other EU countries or for rabies-controlled countries except for the UK. Unfortunately, Pakistan is not on this list. It is not clear that other animalsare prohibited; you shoud contact the country you are traveling to. There may be CITIES permits if your turtle is of an endangered species. What country are you traveling to?
Posted on 2014-05-02 03:33:36.0
Abdul - I misread your post. The UK permits birds from other EU countries or rabies-controlled countries only. Pakistan is not on that list.

Hi, I read your blogs, you are very helpful. Thank You. I live in the US. I want to bring a dog with me from US to Pakistan. Currently I don't have a dog but I will get one from a shelter. My Question is that what document will I need to prepare here in the US for the dog. There is no direct flight from USA to Pak. I will have a connecting flight in Dubai, Doha, Frankfurt or Manchester, so will it be a problem at any of those airports, or will I need to prepare documents for any of those airports?
Posted on 2014-05-03 15:37:18.0
It depends on the type of service your pet is flying under (in-cabin, checked baggage or cargo) and the length of layover along the way. Normally, the airlines will care for your pet up to and around 2 hours if traveling as checked baggage and more for manifest cargo. We would certainly favor Frankfurt over Dubai, Doha or Manchester, but the length of layover is important. You need to stay on the same sirline for the entire trip as the airlines do not interline pets. As for documents, you will need proof of rabies vaccination and a health certificate issued within 10 days of entry. It should be endorsed by the State USDA office. The details are here:

Haziq - that would depend on the airline you choose. They all price the carriage of animals differently. PIA has a direct flight from London Heathrow to Islamabad (not sure of your route). Other airlines that serve the route are British Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Qatar, Etihad, and Emirates. Unfortunately, none of these airlines will permit pets to travel in the cabin. However, your pup will travel on the same plane as you in the hold of the aircraft.
