Pet Passport Senegal
REGULATIONS FOR TAKING A PET DOG OR CAT TO
Senegal does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:
Your pet must be vaccinated for rabies and various other diseases between 30 days and 12 months prior to travel. Then your veterinarian will complete the Senegal Veterinary Certificate. Although it is not required, we recommend that a USDA or CFIA licensed veterinarian complete the form and you have it endorsed by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included.
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 oerson responsible for the pet.
Other Animals: All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements and have a health certificate to accompany them. 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.

Although Senegal does not require an ISO pet microchip, we strongly suggest microchipping your pet prior to traveling.
