    The Annex II form is the EU health certificate. It is a bi-lingual form and differs for each country. Once it is completed and you enter Norway, it is good for 4 months of travel throughout the EU.

    Thank you for your reply, I do appreciate it .
    I still have a minor question about the Annex II form. What is that? and what is it for?

    Thank you.

    Hello - the labs listed in your second URL (http://ec.europa.eu/food/animal/liveanimals/pets/approval_en.htm) are EU approved labs and also for any other country in the world who requires a titer test so you are good if you use any of these. If you navigate to this page: http://www.pettravel.com/petpassportnew.cfm, you can find regulations for every country in the world listed. Each country has different forms and regulations.

    For the EU, because Laos is a high-rabies country, the following process must be followed. First you implant a 15 digit microchip (if you do not stock these, we have a vet/breeder program and sell them at a very reasonable price. (http://www.pettravelstore.com/microchips-for-vets-and-breeders/). After the microchip is implanted, you vaccinate the pet for rabies. It does not matter if the pet has a current vaccination, you must re-vaccinate AFTER the chip is implanted. Then your client will wait 30 days (not including the day of the visit where the chip was implanted) and you will do a blood titer test and send the sample to an approved lab. Assuming acceptable results, your client can travel to the EU 90 days after the day the blood was taken for the titer test. You will need an Annex II form (which is the same as a Third Country Veterinary Certificate) for the specific country within 10 days of travel (each country has a different Annex II form). For Norway, Finland and the UK, you must do a tapeworm treatment within one and five days of travel. Details and we also have links for instructions and all forms required here if you need them: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/Norway.cfm

    As for Korea, requirements are different. Korea requires a microchip, then a rabies vaccination no sooner than 30 days and not more than one year prior to import. Entering from a high-rabies country such as Laos, a titer test is required. It should be given at least 30 days after the second booster (for puppies) and a regular vaccination for pets who have had current vaccinations. This allows the antibodies to build up in the blood and ensures a good score on the titer test. The test must be given more than 30 days but nor more than 2 years prior to entering the country. You can find more detail here again with links to instructions and forms if you need them: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/korea.cfm

    Let us know if you have additional questions.

  • Travelling from Laos PDR to Norway / Korea. I'm really confused about the documents.

    Hi, This is my first time posting in this forum and English is not my first language. So please understand me.

    Actually I'm a veterinarian who work in Vientiane, Laos PDR. Some of my clients (Foriegners) are asking about doing the Rabies-antibody-titer documents. In Vientiane, There is no approved laboratory provided. So i tried to search for any informations in the internet and wonder if I could send the sampling to run the test and report back to where I am.

    But after i read a couple pages & websites, I'm kind of confused the needed documents such as; Third Country Veterinary Certificate, and the 15 digits microships.
    Could anyone list every documents that needed and explain how to prepare them for me, please?

    The other question is about the EU-approved laboratory for the titer test. I've heard Norway allows results of the test only for 4 other countries (Germany's, Japan's, and the other two which I can't remember) but after I read in the EUROPA website, it says a bunch of laboratories including within the member states and also non-member countries.

    I do have a protocol to send the sampling to Biobest, UK. But I'm not sure if that will be allowed for runing the test for Norway / Korea. please explain to me.

    Sorry again for my bad English, and Thank you.
