Pet Passport Cyprus
EUROPEAN UNION (EU) REGULATIONS FOR TAKING A PET DOG OR
CAT TO CYPRUS FROM WITHIN THE EU, OR FROM A
WITH A LOW INCIDENCE OF RABIES.
Cyprus does not quarantine healthy pets (dogs, cats and ferrets) who meet the following requirements:
Your pet must have an ISO pet microchip inserted and then be vaccinated for rabies and various other diseases at least 21 days prior to travel and not more than one year prior to travel. If your dog, cat or ferret has been vaccinated before it was fitted with a microchip, it will have to be vaccinated again. If your pet's microchip is not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, you can bring your own microchip scanner.
A USDA (or CFIA) 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 traveling from another country, the Governmental Authority from your country should endorse the forms. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included. This completes the cat or dog passport for entering Cyprus from a rabies free or country with a low incidence of rabies.
Pets entering Cyprus from a country with a high incidence of rabies, must have a Blood Titer Test 90 days in advance to avoid quarantine.
RESTRICTIONS: Unvaccinated pets (dogs and cats only) under 3 months old may enter an EU Country, but there are additional regulations that must be met. Certain aggressive breeds of dogs are prohibited from entry.
Pets entering an EU Country for commercial purposes require additional forms and different rules apply.
Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet may be refused entry and the relevant authority in consultation with an authorized veterinarian can decide to return the pet home, or place the pet in quarantine at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for pet, or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be arranged.
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 as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.
All countries have a unique veterinary certificates. This form differs from the International Veterinary Certificate issued by veterinarians in the United States. (APHIS 7001)
