Regulations for taking a pet dog or cat to Morocco

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

 This completes a pet passport for your dog or cat to enter Morocco.

Dog Passport Morocco

Whenever you travel to a foreign country like Morocco, 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 Morocco. 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 Morocco. 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 Morocco does not require a pet microchip, we strongly recommend that you microchip your cat or dog prior to traveling.

I am wanting to bring a dog from morocco to the uk

Hi Margaret - to bring your dog from Morocco to the UK will take some advanced planning, but it is not as long as it used to be. First, have your pet microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies (in that order). Then wait for 30 days and have your veterinarian administer a Blood Titer Test. Assuming acceptable results, your pet can enter the UK 90 days after the date the blood was drawn. There are arranements to be made just prior to travel. See them here together with links to complete instructions and all forms required to enter the UK with a pet: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/UnitedKingdom.cfm

Lea - you will need proof of rabies vaccination and a veterinary certificate to take your pet to Morocco. If you are traveling from the US, then you will need USDA endorsement. Then you will need the endorsement from the nearest Consulate of Morocco. You can find details and links to instructions and forms here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/morocco_EU.cfm

Hi, I would like to know if it is possible to take a cat to Morocco for 2 weeks and then bring him back to The Netherlands. Does the fact that he has been allowed in Morocco with all injections and forms etc required suffice to then bring him back, or will they require more things when we come back in NL? Thank you very much!

Hi Katia - Morocco is considered by the EU to be a high-rabies country, so the process for returning will require a bit more time. The process is, first microchip, then vaccinate for rabies, then wait 30 days (not including the date of the vet visit) then have a blood titer test. Assuming acceptable results, your cat can re-enter the Netherlands 90 days from the date the blood was drawn. If you would be traveling back and forth between the countries, you would only go through the process once and the titer test would be good in the EU for the life of your pet as long as you kept the rabies vaccinations current. You can do the process and the wait while you are in the Netherlands.

Hi, sorry I know you have said this but could I just confirm that when taking my cats and dog to Morocco this August they need the Rabies vac 30 days before travel and the vets certificate but not the Rabies blood test? Also, that the vets certificate doesn't need to be taken to the Moroccan Consulate in London. Thank you.

Rebecca - the titer test is not required to enter Morocco with a dog or cat, but you need the endorsement of the Moroccan Consulate in your country on the health certificate. Also have your vet treat your pet for internal and external parasites and note that on the certificate.

So I have to go to London to get it stamped by the Moroccan Consulate? I have been told by DEFRA this is not the case. Why does everyone say so many different things!

Hi there, what would I need to do in order to take my dog from the UK to Morocco for 3 months and then back to the UK again please? In terms of coming back into the UK especially? Many Thanks Rhian

Hi Rhian - Morocco will not be a problem to enter with your pet. You will need proof of rabies vaccination and a veterinary certificate endorsed by the Morocco Consulate. However, re-entering the UK will require a bit of preparation. ( up to 4 months) Because Morocco is considered a high-rabies country by the EU, you will need to have your pet microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies (in that order), wait 30 days, then have your vet do a Blood Titer Test. Assuming acceptable results, your pet can re-enter the UK 90 days after the date the blood was taken. Now, this process assumes you have not entered the UK from a high-rabies country before. It is easier to do the process when you are in the UK as opposed to being in Morocco as there is an approved lab to process the sample in the UK. You can find additional forms and a tapeworm requirement including links to instructions and forms required here if you need them: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/UnitedKingdom.cfm.

To clarify the below... I have USDA endorsement from US to Europe (Portugal, to be exact). Will I also need to get additional endorsement for Morocco?

Nikiesha - no additional endorsement necessary, only for the first country you are entering. You will, however, need to meet Spain's regulations if you are entering the country.

Hi! I need to import a python (300g in weight) from morocco to lahore pakistan. Can you please guide me how to? and also the cost of the transport?

Romy - unfortunately, we do not have any info on importing snakes to Pakistan, however, you will certainly need an import permit. You may want to contact the Ministry of Commerce. You will need to find an airline that will transport your snake and flies the entire route. The airlines will not interline your pet so keep it on the same airline.
