Additionally, the pet must be accompanied by a Thailand Health Certificate in English, signed or further endorsed by a full-time authorized veterinary official of the government of the exporting country.

A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included.
The animals are not allowed to be exposed to other animals if they have to be landed in transit at any approved intermediate port. They shall not be allowed to leave the precinct of the port except to an officially approved transit quarantine area.
If entering from a country with a high incidence of rabies, the animals may be subjected to quarantine at approved premises for a period of at least 30 (thirty) days upon arrival during which they shall be submitted to tests and/or treatments deemed necessary. The importer/owner shall be fully charged for the incurred expenses.
Thailand does not permit the import of American Pit Bull Terriers or American Staffordshire Terriers.
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 oerson responsible for the pet.
All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements and have a health certificate to accompany them.
