Regulations for taking a pet dog or cat to Cambodia

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

This completes a passport for your dog, cat or ferret to enter Cambodia.

Dog Passport Cambodia

Whenever you travel to a foreign country 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 Cambodia. 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 Cambodia. 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.

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

Where do I get an import permit to bring my dog into Cambodia, I have searched everywhere and can't find anything. Surely, there must be some form of paperwork to be filled in. I don't want my dog to arrive and not be able to pick her up, she will have had all the necessary vet checks and shots in Australia.

Be very careful of buying a puppy on the internet, especially if you are wiring money for it.There are many pet scams abound. If you are sure that your breeder is legitimate, then you need to have the puppy vaccinated and you will need an Import Permit and health certificate issued by a licensed vet within 10 days of travel. You can find links to forms and instructions here:

Dear sir! So what can I do to help myself? from losing? money? Does your company can solve? this problem? Please give an advice?? Thanks!

Find a breeder with a website and speak with them on the telephone. Ask if they take credit cards or accept PayPal for payment. Using those things will protect you if there is a problem with the puppy.

Hey, i am want to take 4 puppy's out of Cambodia to Germany. Where do i get information about that. I also wont be on the same flight. So where can i get information about how to transfer them then. It would be great to get any ideas. Thanks!
Posted on 2014-01-09 08:15:23.0
As Cambodia is considered by the EU as a high rabies country, the puppies will not be permitted entry into Germany as unvaccinated puppies. They will need to have a microchip inserted, be vaccinated for rabies (in that order) and (one month after vaccination) they will need a Blood Titer Test processed at an approved lab. Assuming the results are within limits, they can enter the country 90 days after the date the blood was drawn. You can find details about transporting pets to Germany as well as links to instructions and forms here:

Hi, I am bringing my dog to Cambodia from Indonesia. Where do I get the import permit?

Alan - We know of no requirement for an import permit to bring a dog into Cambodia.

PetTravel Thanks for the info..!!

I am confused, in the post below you state no forms or permits are required to enter Cambodia with a dog. But in the March 20th comment you redirect Ms. Zurart to your forms page. So what forms are required for taking our two fully vaccinated dogs from Nepal to Cambodia? Thanks
Posted on 2014-07-29 18:17:55.0
Randy - to enter Cambodia with a pet, you will need proof of rabies vaccination at least 30 days prior to entering the country and a health certificate issued within 10 days of travel. If you are entering Cambodia from the US or Canada, you will need to get the health certificate endorsed by the USDA or the CFIA.

PetTravel Thank you for the clarification :-)

PetTravel Hi Jerry just wanted to inform you that I didn't need or use any of the forms i bought for Cambodia online from Pet Travel as they didn't take any when she traveled with me as extra baggage.

Dj-Donabelle Zuzart Hello - we have never been able to predict enforcement of the rules for any country when you are entering with a pet. We believe that owners traveling with their pet should be able to satisfy every rule that a country has. There is just as great a possibility that an agent would be very strict and then, if a document were missing, a pet would be sent home, quarantined or destroyed. Too big a risk...glad you made it safely.
Posted on 2014-08-26 04:29:34.0
PetTravel Sure I understand that. I just wanted to inform you and give you my feedback. of course its better to be safe than sorry. So as a precaution I had them all on me.
Posted on 2014-08-26 04:44:27.0
Update: I took my dog from Indonesia to Cambodia (as excess baggage - via Phnom Penh) without any trouble at all. In fact, nobody even asked about the dog.
Posted on 2014-08-26 05:13:15.0
Dj-Donabelle Zuzart We are so grateful for that. Thank you.

Awesome. Can't predict enforcement. Really appreciate the feedback. Others will benefit from it. Thank you!

When returning to the US from Cambodia, will I need to repurchase another pet passport and airline form pet policy online?
Posted on 2014-10-31 16:28:55.0
Dean - it would depend on how long you have spent in Cambodia. Some airlines need to see health certificate issued within 10 days of travel, but you should contact them for that info. The US will want to see your pet's current rabies vaccination. The general rule is that you can use your country's documentation to return to the US if you do so within 30 days.

You may want to look at some of the Facebook posts on this page: Several of the posters have traveled to Cambodia with their pet. It is not an easy thing to do because of the last leg and the plane being small. One poster mentioned that he needed to change airlines in Thailand and so had to conform to their regulations. Try contacting other people on the page and ask.

There is also a gentleman named Sim Fields who posted on this page who has detailed his issues with getting his pets to Cambodia. His name is Sim Fields. Try contacting him:

Bangkok air takes Animals to Phnom Pehn,so email them about Siem reap ,but you have to go through Thailand and you most get the permit to transfer through there which is easy to get by emailing their animal import/export office.You also have to pay them to take your pet out of customs and for the paperwork,but its cheap.

I feel like I read something about certain rabies vaccinations not being accepted. Which, could have been another country, but I want to cover all my bases. Are there any specifications?
Posted on 2015-02-10 05:24:44.0
Ellie - the specs for rabies vaccinations for the EU seem to align with the world standard: be a vaccine other than a live modified vaccine and fall within one of the following categories: (i) an inactivated vaccine of at least one antigenic unit per dose (WHO standard); or (ii) a recombinant vaccine expressing the immunising glycoprotein of the rabies virus in a live virus vector Ask your vet and they can advise you.

You said "The general rule is that you can use your country's documentation to return to the US if you do so within 30 days." What if I'm taking my dog from Cambodia to Canada for 30 days. What would the procedure be for vaccinations and things?
Posted on 2015-03-27 06:33:26.0

Carol I know you posted this question a couple of years ago,but did you find a solution as I want to take my dog with me when I move to SIEM reap this year
