Morocco Pet Passport & Import Regulations
Morocco does not quarantine cats and dogs that meet the following requirements. All requirements also apply to service and emotional support animals.
To enter Morocco, your pet must first be microchipped with an ISO 11784/11785 pet microchip that has 15 digits and is non-encrypted. If your pet's microchip is not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, you can bring your own microchip scanner.
Your pet must be vaccinated for rabies between 30 days and 12 months prior to entering the country.
Rabies Titer Test
Unless your dog or cat is entering Morocco from a country designated by the OIE as rabies-free, your pet will need a rabies titer test administered not less than 3 months and not more than 12 months before entering Morocco. If your pet is currently unvaccinated for rabies or its previous vaccination has expired, you should wait for 30 days before having the blood drawn for the titer test.
A USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must then complete a Veterinary Certificate for Morocco within 15 days of travel 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. The forms should also be endorsed by the Moroccan Embassy in your country. This should be done within 3 days of entering Morocco if at all possible.
After endorsement by the USDA State Veterinary Office, the Health 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.
An import permit is not required when entering Morocco with a personal pet.
Ticks and Tapeworm Treatment
A ticks and tapeworm treatment is not required prior to entering Morocco but is recommended due to availability of these products in the country.
Entering Morocco by Air
Pets must enter Morocco via Casablanca Mohammed V International Airport. Pets can enter in the cabin, as checked baggage or air cargo.
Whenever you travel to a foreign country like Morocco, it is always advisable to carry some form of identification indicating ownership of your pet.
All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the entry airport. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.
Morocco bans pit bull breeds as well as other dangerous dog breeds.
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 (CITES). You will need to apply for additional permits if this is the case. Over 180 countries participate and enforce CITES regulations. .
