Traveling with Pets

Before bringing your pet with you to Turkey, make sure that your vet is approved by the Government Veterinarian Authority in the country of origin.

Traveling to Turkey with your Pets

Dogs and cats from all countries must have pet passports, ID marking, valid rabies vaccination, and valid blood-test documentation. Dogs and cats must also be given approved tapeworm treatment during the week before and the week after importation.

Other Pets

All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases.
