Travelling with a dog or cat is now much easier with the
new EU pet passport, available from any vet. All dogs
and cats must have a passport and, for identification
purposes, be fitted with an electronic microchip or have
a clearly readable tattoo applied before July 2011.
All pets must be vaccinated against rabies and the
details entered in their pet passport. The vaccination
must be carried out after the microchipping or
Dogs must be given specific tapeworm treatment by a
vet before travelling to Finland, Ireland, Malta and the
United Kingdom. Details of the treatment must appear
in the pet passport and the dog can then travel between
one to five days after treatment.
