Pet Passport Morocco
Regulations for taking a pet dog or cat to Morocco
Morocco does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:
- Your pet cat or dog must be vaccinated for rabies between 30 days and 12 months prior to entry into the country.
- A USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must then complete a Veterinary Certificate for Morocco for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are not traveling from either of these countries, the Governing Authority of your country responsible for the import and export of animals should endorse the forms.
- A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included for endorsement.
- After endorsement by the USDA State Veterinary Office the Veterinary Certificate and attached Rabies Certificate must be sent for authentication to the nearest Consulate of Morocco with a check for $33.00 and a postage paid return envelope.
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.
