Dog Passport Morocco

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. 

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 PetTravelStore.com 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

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
Posted on 2014-09-02 11:00:48.0
PetTravel
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.

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 2014-09-22 12:42:14.0
PetTravel
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
PetTravel
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

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.

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.

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
PetTravel
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.

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.

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
PetTravel
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/UnitedKingdom.cfm To enter Morocco, you will need their health certificate endorsed by the Moroccan Consulate and proof of rabies vaccination.
