Pet & Animal Transport into Nordic region

Pet Travel Stats

All countries within the Nordic Region are subject to different animal travel regulations. Please complete the form below and we will email you the relevant veterinary requirements for that country.

Below is the basic standard requirements for travel:

Pets travelling to the Nordic Region are not subject to any quarantine time upon arrival.  Whilst the Nordic area is not part of the European Union, their entry requirements for pets are similar to the European Union

All Pets need to be microchipped before they can leave South Africa.


  • Valid Inoculations (5in1 for Dogs; 3in1 for Cats) – over 30 days less than 12 months
  • Valid Rabies Vaccination – over 30 days less than 12 months
  • Microchipping
  • Rabies Neutralising Antibody Titration Test (RNATT)

Entry to The EU may take place AT LEAST 90 days after the drawing of blood for the RNATT, no sooner entry may happen.

IMPORTANT: The Rabies Test (RNATT) can only be drawn after 30 days from re-vaccination of Rabies if the pets Rabies inoculations have been allowed to expire.  Please DO NOT draw blood before these 30 days as the pets will not receive State Clearance and may not be allowed to enter the country or may be quarantined on entry.  Micro-chipping MUST be done prior to or on the same day as the rabies vaccine, any variation to this may result in a blood redraw and possible travel delays

We do have excellent partner agents who are also able to meet your pet on arrival into the EU, clear customs and forward your pet onto his/her final destination including delivery to your new home.  Please ask us about this service.

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