Armenia Pet Passport & Import Regulations
There will be no quarantine imposed on your pet when entering Armenia as long as the following requirements are met. Unless otherwise stated, the regulations below apply to domestic dogs and cats including service and emotional support dogs and cats.
Armenia does not require that your pet be identified with a pet microchip; however, it is strongly recommended that pet owners identify their pets with a microchip prior to traveling as a means of identification.
The microchip should be implanted by your veterinarian, veterinary hospital or trained nurse. You should receive documentation as to the manufacturer of the microchip and instructions how to register your pet's information in the manufacturer database.
If your pet does not have a registered microchip, your pets should be wearing tags that identify them and have contact information for the owner.
Your cat or dog must be vaccinated for rabies between 20 days and 11 months prior to entering Armenia.
Dogs should also be vaccinated against Distemper, Hepatitis, Viral Enteritis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza, Adenovirus infections and Leptospiros.
Cats should also be vaccinated against panleukemia, Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Leukemia. Cats with dermatophytoses will require further inspection and testing.
Pet Health Certificate
A licensed veterinarian in the origination country must complete the pet health certificate for Armenia not more than 5 days before travel. The certificate must be either issued or endorsed by a veterinarian representing the governing authority in the origination country that is responsible for the import and export of live animals.
An import permit is not required when entering Armenia with a personal pet.
Parasite treatments are not required prior to entering Armenia but are strongly recommended due to availability of these products in the country.
Entering the Armenia by Air
Pets entering Armenia by air must enter Armenia at the Zvartnots International Airport in Zvartnots.
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.
Armenia does not publish a list of banned breeds. Pet owners are responsible for their pet's behavior.
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 Armenia. 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.
