Regulations for taking a pet to Pakistan

Pakistan does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:

  • Your pet must be vaccinated for rabies between 30 days and 12 months prior to entering Pakistan.
  •   Veterinary Certificate for Pakistan must be completed. A USDA or CFIA licensed veterinarian completes the form and you have it endorsed by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are traveling from another country, the Governing Authority in your country responsible for the import and export of animals should endorse the forms.
  • A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included for endorsement.

Whenever you travel to a foreign country like Pakistan, it is always advisable to carry some form of identification indicating ownership of the pet.

Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet will be refused entry or returned to the country of origin or placed in quarantine, all at the expense of the person responsible for your pet.

Inspection: All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the port of entry to Pakistan. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.

Other Animals: 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 Pakistan. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.

Veterinary Certificate: All countries have unique veterinary certificates. This form may differ from the veterinary certificate issued by veterinarians in the United States. (APHIS 7001) It is an essential part of the cat or dog passport.

Pet Microchip: Although Pakistan does not require a pet microchip, we strongly recommend that you microchip your cat or dog prior to traveling.
