Pet Passport Egypt
REGULATIONS FOR TAKING A PET DOG OR CAT TO
Egypt does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:
Your pet cat or dog must be microchipped and vaccinated for rabies at least 30 days but not more than 12 months prior to entry into the country. If your pet's microchip is not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, you can bring your own microchip scanner.
Within 14 days of travel, a USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must then complete the Egypt Veterinary Certificate for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If traveling from another country, the Governing Authority of your country should endorse the forms. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included. This will complete your cat or dog passport for Egypt.
You are required to keep the pet in your custody for the first 3 months you are in Egypt.
A small administrative fee may be charged upon your arrival.
Before departure You must take your pet to the quarantine office at the airport 48 hours before departure from Egypt where they will issue a new health certificate and permit to take the pet from the Country. There is a nominal fee charged for this service.
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 dog or cat 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). This is an important part of the cat or dog passport.
