Regulations for taking a pet dog or cat to Tanzania

Tanzania does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:

This completes a pet passport for your dog or cat to enter Tanzania.

Imported animals may enter only at designated ports.

Dog Passport Tanzania

Whenever you travel to a foreign country like Tanzania, it is always advisable to carry some form of identification indicating ownership of your 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 Tanzania. 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 Tanzania. 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 Tanzania does not require a pet microchip, we strongly recommend that you microchip your cat or dog prior to traveling.

It depends on the policy of the airline.

I have a registered service dog that is up to date with all vaccines. he is a shepherd and has traveled with me, in the airplane cabin, at my feet, pretty much, all over the world. i am planning on going to Sanya Juu, Kilimanjaro, Tanzania in a few months and I am wondering what is required beyond his medicasl records and service dog certificate? thank you...

Jodey, I too am trying to find this out. I am relocating to Kenya and have a King Shepherd service dog. Kenya does NOT allow ANY animals to travel in the cabin and the animal has to arrive as "manifest Cargo" and costs close to $2,000. I thought that if we flew into Tanzania where he CAN enter and be in the cabin and then enter Kenya via car that would be allowed. Right now I am waiting for his rabies titer level test) (required in Kenya but not sure about Tanzania) to come back and that could delay us for WEEKS. Have you gotten some clear answers for entering Tanzania? Melissa haulnoats@frontier.net

If your vet does not carry microchips, ask him (or her) to inquire from a vet in the country's capital.

I would recommend that pets entering any of these countries get microchipped, vaccinated and have a titer test performed prior to entering. The reason for this is because these tests are next to impossible to get once your pet is there and, depending on the country you may need to leave to go to, they may be required.

Melissa Margetts hi.. no, nothing as to riding in the cabin and, at his age, i would not have him travel any other way! i feel for you as i would just be going to visit friends, and their elephants, and not relocating. luka, my dog, has been to india and several other countries w/o a problem as long as i have his "service dog" papers as well as immunization records. let me know if you find out anything more about flying into tanzania and i will do the same. blessings, j

Your pup must be fully vaccinated prior to entering Tanzania. Usually, the rabies vaccination is given at 3 months so that would make the entry age 4 months. Some countries will permit puppies to travel unvaccinated with their mother, but that would have to be verified if it applied.
