Pet Passport Cyprus

Dog Passport Cyprus

European Union (EU) Regulations for taking a pet dog, cat or ferret to Cyprus from within the EU, from rabies free countries or from a country with a low incidence of rabies.

Cyprus does not quarantine healthy pets (cats, dogs and ferrets) from the above countries having resided there for the preceeding six (6) months  that meet the following requirements in this order:

  1.  ISO 11784/11785 compliant 15 digit pet microchip. If your pet's microchip is not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, you can bring your own microchip scanner.
     
  2. Rabies vaccination no sooner than 21 days* prior to entry and not more than the expiration date of the manufacturer of the vaccine. If your dog, cat or ferret has been vaccinated before it was fitted with a microchip, it will have to be vaccinated again after the microchip is implanted.
     
  3. For pets entering Cyprus from a country with a high incidence of rabies, a Blood Titer Test administered no sooner than one month after rabies vaccination. Samples must be processed at approved laboratories. Assuming test results within acceptable limits, your pet can enter Cyprus 90 days after the date the blood was drawn and avoid quarantine. This step is not required unless entering Cyprus from a high rabies country.
     
  4. Within 10 days of travel, an accredited veterinarian must then complete the bi-lingual Annex II for Cyprus for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are not traveling from either of these countries, endorsement is not required unless your country mandates it.
     
  5. A copy of the Rabies Certificate and Blood Titer Test Results should also be included for endorsement (if applicable).

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

Dog Passport Sweden

*After the first vaccination and waiting period, you can enter Cyprus whenever you like as long as booster vaccinations are given on time and you continue to meet the other entry requirements.

Pets can enter Cyprus at the following entry points: Larnaka International Airport, Pafos International Airport, Lemesos Port, Larnaka Port, Pafos Port, Latchi Port, Larnaka Marina and the Saint Raphael Marina.

When entering Cyprus for commercial purposes such as breeding or sale, pets require additional forms and different rules apply. Birds are not permitted to be imported to Cyprus.

Restricted Breeds: The following breeds are banned from import to Cyprus: Brazilian Fila, Dogo Argentino, Japanese Tosa Inu, Pit Bull and Staff Terrier.

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 Cyprus. 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 Cyprus. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.

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.

No, Bahrain is a country with a low incidence of rabies. A titer test is not required.

Hi im living Saudi Arabia on 15 May is Saudi in High Rabies Country ? Do my dog must have Rabbies blood test to entering Cyprus

PetTravel
Yes, the same rules apply for all dogs, even service animals. Rabies vaccination after microchip insertion and an Annex II form for Cypress endorsed by the state USDA office within 10 days of travel. The airines may want an APHIS 7001 form which your vet should have. If need links to instructions and forms, you can find them here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/cyprus.cfm

Violetta - the EU does consider Saudi Arabia as a high rabies country. Your dog will need a blood titer test no sooner than 30 days after rabies vaccination. Assuming acceptable results, your pet can enter Cyprus 90 days after the date the blood was drawn.

Bineeta - The EU considers Qatar as a high rabies country. Your cat will need to be microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies. No sooner than 30 days after the day of the vaccination, your vet will do a Blood Titer Test (RNATT). Assuming acceptable results, your cat can enter Cypress with an Annex II form 90 days after the date the blood was drawn.
