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 are not permittted to enter Morocco from any country. 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 (CITES).  You will need to apply for additional permits if this is the case. Search their database. Over 180 countries participate and enforce CITES regulations. Read more about CITES.

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. 

The information published here is a guideline for pet owners importing their pet to Morocco. Further detail on import permits (if applicable), costs, tests and procedures are available at minimal cost at if you need them. We also stock all the equipment and accessories you will need for traveling with your pet. Same day shipping until 4:00 PM EST.

I am wanting to bring a dog from morocco to the uk
Posted on 2014-03-19 18:26:00.0
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:

i would like to travel this summer to Morocco by car with my dog, at the moment he is 19 weeks, which steps do i have to take.
Posted on 2014-04-05 17:11:15.0
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:

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!
Posted on 2014-06-06 09:08:54.0
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.

PetTravel thanks!
Posted on 2014-06-09 08:25:19.0
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.
Posted on 2014-07-18 15:24:10.0
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.
Posted on 2014-07-22 04:29:53.0
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
Posted on 2014-09-02 11:00:48.0
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:

Hello Travelling from US to Tarifa, Spain, but will only be in spain for one day. After which, I will travel to Morocco. I have USDA endorsement. Will I still need approval from Spain??
Posted on 2014-09-05 21:15:07.0
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?

Hi my name is kirsty im taking my pet cat from spain to morroco could you tell me what i could need ? sorry i just dont want to get there and they dont let me in ! thankyou so much x i need help please!!
Posted on 2014-09-06 13:44:11.0
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.
Posted on 2014-09-08 03:47:34.0
Alexia - you will need proof of rabies vaccination and a veterinary certificate. You can find details here with a link to instructions and the forms you will need:

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?
Posted on 2014-09-22 12:42:14.0
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.

Hello, We have just returned from a holiday in Marrakech, during which we found an abandoned baby kitten and put her into veterinary care. She is 3 weeks old and I understand she cannot have the rabies jab until 8 weeks. What can I expect to challenge us, further to this? What else needs to be done in order to get her to the UK? Many thanks.
Posted on 2014-11-15 11:41:47.0
hi Evette - your kitten cannot have its rabies jab until 12 weeks of age. UK regulations require that, at 12 weeks of age, your pet should be microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies (in that order). There is a 30 day wait, then a Blood Titer Test is administered by your vet and the sample is sent to an approved lab. Your kitty can enter the UK 3 calendar months after the blood is taken for the titer test. Your vet will need to fill out an Annex II form within 10 days of entry. The reason for the 90 day wait is because Morocco is considered to be a high-rabies country by the EU. Unless you or a designated representative is traveling with the kitten, then additional requirements apply.

Hello! I just got back from my holiday in Marrakech, where I found 2 baby cats, around 15 weeks old. I want to go back in january to pick them up and adopt them, but a friend of mine lives there and is able to take care of some formalities before I get there. I read about the ''3 month waiting'' rule, does that always apply? What are all the things that need to be done, what time span am I looking at and what will be all the costs? Thanks in advance

Is there a limit to the number of pets you can enter with? My boyfriend and I might move to morocco to teach. I have two cats, and he has two cats and a dig.

Posted on 2014-12-25 19:16:26.0
Dyanthe - Morocco is considered by the EU to be a high-rabies country, so the titer test would be required. Your kittens should be microchipped and vaccinated for rabies not before 3 months of age and must wait for a minimum of 30 days prior to having a Blood Titer Test administered by a licensed vet. The sample must be sent to an approved laboratory. Your kitties can enter the Netherlands 3 calendar months after the date the blood was drawn with an Annex IV certificate as you are accompanying them. Details for importing pets to the Netherlands can be found here together with instructions and forms if you need them:
Posted on 2014-12-27 18:53:28.0
You will need to file an import permit to import your pets to Morocco. We are not aware of any limits, but, if they are, it will be stated on the permit.
Posted on 2014-12-27 19:10:41.0
Morocco does not publish limits on the number of pets that can be imported. You may want to contact the Ministry of Agriculture or the Moroccan Embassy.

Is there no quarantine period required should all the documentation & rabies shots are in order. Would hate to be separated from my dog
Posted on 2014-12-29 18:27:52.0
Annelie - there is no quarantine to enter Morocco with your pet if requirements are met.
Posted on 2015-01-02 01:14:32.0
We are thinking of taking two dogs from Portugal to Morocco they have passports and are chipped there rabies injection was done in 2013
Posted on 2015-01-07 11:32:59.0
Jenny - you should have your dogs microchipped and given rabies injections done before you go. If you are returning to Portugal, there will be problems if you don't have titer tests done prior to leaving. Get them EU pet passports for returning. You will need a health certificate and proof of rabies vaccination for Morocco.
Posted on 2015-01-14 05:27:39.0
Do I have to have the titer tests done before I leave portugal to go to Morocco or in Morocco before returning to Portugal.
Posted on 2015-01-14 15:29:22.0
Jenny - It is easier to have the titer test done while you are in Portugal. It will be good for the EU for the life of your pet as long as the rabies vaccinations do not expire.
Posted on 2015-01-18 20:47:21.0
Hi, I'd like to travel to Morocco with my dog from Spain, but the flying company doesn't allow me because the dog health certificate isn't issued in 10 days before the departure. I didn't know this, my dog's got a health certificate but it was issued two month before. Do you know about this? Is this true?
Posted on 2015-01-26 08:55:56.0
Sergio - it is true. The airlines will require that your pet's health certificate be issued within 10 days of travel. But there are more requirements than that. Your pet must be microchipped and vaccinated for rabies at least 21 days prior to export and must have an EU pet passport. If you plan to return to Spain, it will be more difficult as it will require a titer test 1 month after vaccination and 3 months prior to entering Spain.

We adopted a kitten while a trip in Morocco about a year ago, she didnt have a passport so we letf her there with some friends that are doing us the faor of taking care of her. My husband will be traveling to Morocco on April and we want to bring her to the USA with us. What do I need to do to bring here to Arizona, USA? Thank you very much in advance
Posted on 2015-02-04 22:18:23.0
Hi Sandra - although the USDA and CDC do not require it, your kitty should be vaccinated for rabies 30 days prior to entering the US. In order to get your kitty licensed in Arizona, you will need to do that anyway. Ask your airline whether a health certificate will be required.
Posted on 2015-02-07 15:57:46.0
Hi, so no antibodies for the rabies blood test required? Thank you very much, I was just speaking with our friend in Morocco, it looks like our kitty might be pregnant, so we will have to wait longer. Thank you again.
Posted on 2015-02-07 15:59:34.0
Moving to Morocco with a US Medical Service Dog, but we live in UK and have a EU Pet Passport. Please confirm any requirements, as we will most likely be going back and forth from EU (Portugal, France, Spain) to Morocco.

I m shipping my dog from Uzbekistan to Morocco , would I need to do any blood tests or the vet vaccines certificate would be enough ?
Posted on 2015-02-11 06:46:42.0
Hi Jose - no titer test required for Morocco. You will need to get the health certificate endorsed by your local Board of Health and send it to the Moroccan Consulate in your country for endorsement.
Posted on 2015-02-13 02:11:19.0
Sean - Morocco is considered a high-rabies country by the EU. What this means is that you will need to follow this process to return to any EU country from Morocco: have your SA microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies. Wait 30 days and have your vet administer a Blood Titer Test. Assuming acceptable results, your SA can return to the EU 3 calendar months after the date the blood was drawn. Have the titer test done in the UK as there is an approved lab there. The titer test is good for the life of your SA as long as rabies vaccinations are kept up to date. You will need a tapeworm test between one and five days of returning to the UK every time you travel back there. Regs for entering Morocco can be found here:

I am bringing my dog back from Marrakech to Malaga where she will then be driven back to the uk. I need to take an airline approved crate to morocco on easy jet then back to malaga, on iberia airlines. im not sure of the recommended size of the crate for a dog that is 14kg. As the dog was a rescue dog i do not have exact sizes of the dog as she has grown in the 5 months since i last saw her. I have been in contact with the vet who will only tell me she is now 14kg,

PetTravel Hi, Thanks for your question- it would be a week in Morocco, travelling from Uk and returning to UK
Posted on 2015-03-01 17:59:42.0
Mohamed Trekandtour Mohamed - Morocco is considered by the EU to be a high-rabies country, so a titer test a minimum of 30 days after rabies vaccination and no sooner than 3 months prior to returning to the UK would be required. Your pet would need to be microchipped, vaccinated and travel with an EU pet passport to leave the UK. You can use the same passport as well as the titer test to return, but your pup will also need a tapeworm treatment between one and five days of entry to the UK. Details here: To enter Morocco, you will need their health certificate endorsed by the Moroccan Consulate and proof of rabies vaccination.

PetTravel, There are now two kittens... Both have been microchipped, vaccinated and tested by a lab in France.

Hello - I live in Costa Rica and am taking care of an 8 year old dog of mixed breed (includes labrador) that belongs to a friend who has moved to Morocco. She is now ready for us to send her the dog. We have kept up with all her shots including a rabies shot in March 2014 and another on 29 January 2015 at the same time as installing a microchip. Serum was drawn on that same date and sent to Kansas for a Titer test (>/=4.56 IU/mL). The nearest Moroccan Embassy is in Guatemala. What do I need to do to get the dog ready to have a safe trip to Morocco?
Posted on 2015-05-11 14:53:28.0
Hello - I just sent some questions regarding sending a dog to Morocco. I would also like to ask if there is anything that needs to be done regarding TRANSITING via the EU? I know the EU regulations for import are very strict, but I can´t find anything for a pet that is just passing through.
Posted on 2015-05-11 14:59:50.0

Does Morocco now require a TITER TEST? Dog grew up in Morocco and want to take him back for the summer. We did our rabies shot 31+ days before departure date, but when the USDA vet read the form which the vet downloaded and completed, form said 1) the medical exam must be LESS THAN 24 HOURS before departure (impossible to take a weekend night flight)— AND that 2) a TITER TEST must be recorded for more than 3 but fewer than 12 months before departure. Is it becoming nearly impossible to bring a dog to Morocco under the new rules? Or did the vet maybe download the wrong form?

Hi I will be taking my dog with me from USA to morocco for 5 weeks !! I have all documents ready but bringing him back will I find problems ?? Thank you
Posted on 2015-07-15 16:00:58.0

Fatima - your health certificate will expire after 4 weeks. You will need to visit a vet in Morocco and have a new health certificate done. It should be in English.
Posted on 2015-07-16 03:43:47.0

Sean - sounds like your vet filled out the Annex I form when, if you are accompanying your pet, you need the Annex IV form. The latter form gives you 10 days to get the exam and endorsement done. Morocco is adopting EU regulations as they have formally bid to be a part of the EU.

Posted on 2015-07-23 16:47:08.0

Hi Amy - Morocco is considered a high-rabies country by the EU and so the process would be such that the puppy would be a minimum of 7 months of age before entering the UK. You can find details on entering the UK from a high-rabies country here with links to forms and instructions if you need them:

Hi- I'm planning to *somehow* bring my dog with me to Morocco from NYC. I have read absolutely awful reviews about Royal Air Maroc- the airline and am now super-hesitant about flying with my dog on this airline. It's the only direct flight to Casablanca. If I flew into the south of Spain (which would allow me to use a more reputable airline,) is there a way to get into Morocco from there with my dog? Would there be a quarantine or any special documents for this? Also, would I have issues if I wanted to return to the U.S. in this manner?
Posted on 2015-08-10 16:54:44.0

Hello, I bought your forms when I return with my pets from Morocco two years ago. I am going back to Morocco now with my pets and have several questions. Do they need to be checked 24 hours prior to flying as a vet tech has just told me? After the health certificates are endorsed by the USDA, do they have to be endorsed by the Department of the State before being endorsed by the Moroccan Consulate? I am planning to go to Spain in two years? if my animals get the titer here in the USA would it still be good then, especially after entering Morocco? I am planning to leave soon, your answer is greatly apprecated.

Posted on 2015-09-15 13:54:11.0

Mandie - Jamaica will not allow vaccinated pets to enter and they must enter from the UK, so your pet could not accompany you to that country. If you enter Morocco, your pet will need a titer test to enter France.
Posted on 2015-09-18 04:09:05.0

Rachael - the regulations are the same for both countries. Your dog will be considered entering from the US.
