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.

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:

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!

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!
