Pet & Animal Transport into Middle East

Pet Travel Stats

Pet’s travelling to the Middle East are not subject to any quarantine time upon arrival.

Pet’s inoculations (5 in1 for dogs, including Leptospirosis, and 3 in 1 for cats as well as Rabies for both) must be valid for a minimum of 30 days and not less than a year.  The pet also needs to be microchipped.

A Rabies Titre Blood test must be drawn (this blood can be drawn by your local vet, however, MUST be sent for testing at Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute (OVI) and not a private institution – your vet will arrange for the blood to be couriered to OVI; the pet can then enter the UAE 12 weeks from the date this blood is drawn. The Rabies Titre Blood test is valid for 12 months.

An import permit needs to be obtained.  We have an agent who can assist you with this application, please advise if you would like a quotation.

Your PETport consultant will provide you with a personalised schedule for this stringent export protocol once your departure date is set. 

PETport will prepare all your Veterinary Health Certificates and Government Endorsements for you.

Have used them twice, both times I've been extremely happy. Updated via telephone, email and sms. Driver was friendly and brilliant with pets. Good prices.
