*The countries listed below are considered "Rabies Free" or "Rabies Controlled" by the UAE Ministry of Environment and Water and are exempt from this portion of the import process: Australia, Austria, Andorra, Ascension Island, Antigua & Barbuda, Aruba, Barbados, Bahrain, Bermuda, Canada, Cayman Islands, Chile, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Fiji, French Polynesia, Falkland Islands, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hong Kong, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, Jamaica, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Malta, Montserrat, Mauritius, Mayotte, Netherlands, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Qatar, Saint Vincent & the Grenadines, Saint Kitts & Nevis, San Marino, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, USA,Vatican City, Vanuatu, Wallis & Futuna.

Dog Passport United Arab Emirates

Pets can only arrive as cargo and only as manifested cargo when imported. Maximum two (2) pets per family. Approved entry points: Abu dhabi airport, El Bateen, RAK airport, Dubai airport, Al Ain Airport, Sharjah, Fujairah and Ajman International Airports.

The inspection process is somewhat complicated and can take several hours. We recommend that you employ the services of a transport agent in the United Arab Emirates who will handle all of the details for you and arrange for speedy clearance through immigration.

Restricted Breeds
The United Arab Emirates does not permit the import of the following breeds or their crosses: Brazilian Fila, Dogo Argentino, Argentinian Mastiff, Wolf Hybrids, Japanese Tosa Inu, Pit Bulls or Staff Terriers.

Whenever you travel to a foreign country like the United Arab Emirates, 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 the United Arab Emirates. 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 the United Arab Emirates. 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.

According to the rules, both countries will require an Import Permit, however, it is important to note that Oman is a country with a high level of rabies and the UAE should require a blood titer test when returning to the country.

Hebah - You may import personally owned pet birds if the owner or immediate family member is in possession of the bird when it enters Canada together with a declaration from the owner that the bird has been in his or her possession for 90 days prior to import and has not come in contact with any other birds during that time. Additionally, the owner must state in writing that the bird is a personal pet and is not entering Canada for any commercial or resale purposes. The owner must not have imported a bird at any time during a 90 day period preceding the import. If these conditions cannot be met or the bird is originating from outside of the United States, an import permit must be obtained from a local CFIA office.

Hebah, if you are only planning to visit Canada for a short period of time (vacation), rather leave the bird in the UAE with somebody you trust. It is a long travel and can be very stressful for the bird. If you decide to bring the bird with you and take it back with you to the UAE, pls check before the time, because often there's a ban on birds into the UAE in place.

You can fly your pet on a commercial airline, but the UAE requires that they arrive as manifest cargo. That means you need to contact the cargo department of the airline you are planning to fly to make reservations for your dog.

Your pet will be inspected when you clear customs in the UAE. You pet must have a Blood Titer Test no sooner than 30 days after microchipping and rabies vaccination, and the blood sample must be sent to an approved laboratory. Discuss this with your veterinarian because it is difficult to do from many African countries. The BTT must be done no more than 3 months prior to entering the UAE. A health certificate endorsed by the department of the government responsible for the import and export of live animals is also required. You can find links to more details here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/unitedarabemirates.cfm

As long as your pet is in good health, the airlines should transport your dog. The UAE does not have an age limit on pets, but, again, they must fulfill the requirements and be in good health to enter the country.

Hi, I'm bringing a small dog from the UK to Oman to join my other small dog in Oman then in a month or so we will be going with both dogs to Abu Dhabi via car. Oman does not require the Blood titer test but Abu Dhabi does so when should I get this test done? can it be done immediately after the rabies vaccination is given? and how long does it take for the results to come through? Regards, thanks for your service.
Posted on 2014-01-29 08:32:38.0
PetTravel
You should get the titer test done while you are in the UK as it is easier to get the blood sample analyzed. Ideally, you need to wait 30 days after the rabies vaccination and some countries enforce that, but if you have kept your pet's rabies vaccinations current, then you should be ok doing it sooner. Typically, it takes 20 days or so for the antibodies to show up in your pet's blood. If your pet is close to have their rabies vaccination expire, it may be wise to wait. The results can take one to three weeks to process depending on the lab. Some take longer. Your titer test should be good in the EU for the life of your pet as long as the rabies vaccination does not expire. You will need it to return to the UK as well.

Posted on 2014-02-08 13:56:10.0

Maurice - the UAE will require a titer test when entering through an approved land outlet as they do not consider Oman to be a rabies free country. Both countries require Import Permits and veterinary certificates. Beond that, we cannot advise you whether to register your pet in one country or the other as you will need to meet the requirements of both countries if you are traveling between them.

Hello Crsto - you can take your dog with you in the cabin to Lebanon if we can find an airline that will allow it. If you are traveling from Larnaca to Beirut, you can get a direct flight with either Cyprus Airways or Middle East Airlines. Both allow small dogs and cats to travel in the cabin. To enter Lebanon, your pet must be microchipped, have proof of rabies vaccination at least 30 days prior to entry, veterinary certificate endorsed by the Lebanon consulate and proof of ownership. You can find all the details on taking a pet to Lebanon here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/lebanon.cfm Will you be returning to Cyprus? This is a concern due to the requirements to re-enter the EU from Lebanon.

Crsto Tlu Crsto - In order to return, your pet must have a RNATT (Blood Titer Test) 3 months prior to re-entering the EU. The test must be done no sooner than 30 days after the rabies vaccination that is done after the microchip is implanted. So, 1. microchip 2. rabies vaccination 3. thirty day wait 4. RNATT (titer test) 5. can enter the EU 3 months after the date the blood was drawn with an Annex II form for Cyprus. The titer test would be easier to do in Cyprus, but it does not appear you have the time.

Hi Vicky - to travel to the UK, your pet must be vaccinated for rabies after the microchip was inserted and the vaccination must take place at least 21 days prior to entering the country. Your pet will need an Annex II form for the UK issued within 10 days of entry and a tapeworm test between one and five days of entry. The regulations are here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/UnitedKingdom.cfm. You will need to check with the Ministry of the Environment for export requirements. To bring your pet back to Dubai, you will need an Import Permit and a health certificate issued within 72 hours of travel.

Hi Rashdan - in 2005, the UAE banned birds from any country due to outbreaks of the Avian Bird Flu. Since that time, it has been more country specific in its bans. We do not have current information on the import of birds to the UAE. We would suggest that you contact the Ministry of the Environment and Water and inquire. Sorry we can't be of more assistance in that regard. As to returning to the US, your pet bird will need an import permit, veterinary certificate and it will be quarantined for 30 days at home. It will need to enter the US at JFK, MIA or LAX. We don't quote costs because each airline will price the transport differently. You should contact an airline that serves the entire route for pricing information.

Muhammad - at this time, we cannot advise on current legislation on bringing birds into the UAE as they have banned countries individually since 2005. You should contact the Ministry of the Environment and Water (MOEW) and inquire.

Sabrina - your Chihuahua will need a rabies vaccination AFTER the microchip was inserted and no sooner than 21 days prior to entry to France. You will need an Annex II form for France completed by your vet within 10 days of travel. You can find details here and links to instructions and forms as well: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/France.cfm Your Chichuahua will need to travel as cargo on Emirates. Inquire with Air France if they serve your route and ask if it can travel in the cabin with you. It is a small breed to travel as cargo.

Hi PetTravel, My family and I will be moving to UAE, Abu Dhabi in June and want to bring our Labrador. I have her licensed as a disability dog and am authorized to take her on the plane with me. It states she has to be cargo or on the cargo itinerary. Are there any exceptions to this rule? Or will I have to check her as cargo, which is something that is a bit scary to me.

Your dog should not go into quarantine. UK is a controlled rabies country. As long as requirements are met.

Hi Jennifer - we checked with Emirates Airlines who will accept seeing-eye dogs for the blind in the cabin on flights to the UAE from the EU, US or Canada. All other service animals must travel as manifest cargo. This is because of United Arab Emirates Federal Government regulations.

Jennifer - no better news from the UAE. They do not recognize the ADA act. Service animals must arrive as manifest cargo. Sorry..

Yewet - if you are going to Bombay (Mumbai) India, then you cannot bring your pet with you. India will only permit pets relocating with their owners to reside in India to enter the country. You can find details here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/india.cfm.

Thank-you for your help and time with my prior question. Do you have any information on the quarantine location in Abu Dhabi and how I can contact them to set up the pick up of my dog on arrival?

Jennifer - if you are entering the UAE from the US where your pet has resided for at least 6 months, then it should not be subject to quarantine as long as it has met the other requirements. The titer test should not be required.

Florence - your cat will need a microchip implanted, then it needs to be vaccinated for rabies at least 21 days prior to entering France. The vaccination must come after the chip is implanted. Within 10 days of travel, your vet will complete an Annex II form for France. You can find details and links to forms and instructions if you need them here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/France.cfm. As for re-entering Dubai, you should contact the Ministry of Agriculture prior to leaving for an Import Paper. They should have export requirements. Ask them whether your pet will need a titer test to re-enter the UAE. Most likely you will need to see a vet in France to get an updated health certificate.
