Pakistan does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:
- Your pet must be vaccinated for rabies between 30 days and
12 months prior to entering Pakistan.
- Veterinary Certificate
for Pakistan must be completed. A USDA or CFIA licensed
veterinarian completes 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
in your country responsible for the import and export of animals
should endorse the forms.
- If your pet is entering Pakistan from BSE infected countries, such as the UK, Ireland, Belgium,
Denmark, Falkland, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Holland, Spain, Brazil, Czech
Republic, Austria, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, USA and Alberta Region of Canada, the
National Veterinary Authority
shall certify the BSE status of the country and the feeding of pets with meat,
bone meal and greaves derived from BSE infected ruminants has been banned and effectively enforced.
- An import permit will be issued at the time of arrival.
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.

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.
