6-How do I travel to Turkey with a pet?

Pet Microchip

pet microchip

Your pet must first be microchipped with an ISO 11784 pet microchip that is a 15 digit and non-encrypted. If your pet's microchip is not ISO 11784 compliant, you can bring your own microchip scanner.

2.Vaccinations

vaccinations

Your pet cat or dog must be vaccinated for rabies between 30 days and 12 months prior to entry into Turkey. The 3 year rabies vaccination is not accepted.

An original rabies certificate reflecting all of your pet's rabies vaccinations should accompany your pet.

 

3.Rabies Titer Test

Blood Titer Test

In order to avoid 3 months of home quarantine, no sooner than 30 days after the rabies vaccination is given, your pet should** have a rabies titer test with the sample processed in an EU-approved laboratory at least 90 days prior to entering Turkey. (Have your veterinarian scan your pet's microchip prior to the titer test.)

 

**NOTE: If your pet has not received a rabies titer test or 90 days have not passed since the date the blood was drawn for the titer test, your pet will be subject to home quarantine for the duration of the 90 day period.

 

Although Turkish regulations clearly state that a blood titer test or other proof of anti-rabies titer level is required, presently, enforcement of this requirement appears inconsistent. You should consider your travel needs when making your decision as to whether to have the test performed, but entering with valid rabies titer test results will ease customs clearance and may alleviate the requirement for home quarantine.

 

The titer test is valid for travel to the European Union from Turkey as well as other countries as long as the sample is processed in an EU approved lab and your pet's rabies vaccinations do not expire. Traveling with a titer test is the ultimate proof to customs officials that your pet is protected from rabies, but it appears that currently, the requirement is optional when entering Turkey.

 

4.Health Certificate

Turkey Health Certificat

Within 10 days of travel, a USDA or CFIA-accredited veterinarian must then complete the Veterinary Certificate for Turkey for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are not traveling from either of these countries, the Governing Authority of your country responsible for the import and export of animals should endorse the forms.

 

If your pet is flying as accompanied checked baggage, then your pet must have a health certificate issued by government veterinary officials within 48 hours of transport.

Passports & Instructions    

 

5.Quarantine

pet quarantine

If your pet enters Turkey with a titer test completed 3 months prior to entering the country, then it will likely not be subject to home quarantine. If your pet does not have a titer test or 3 months has not elapsed since the titer test, then your pet will be home quarantined for the balance of the 4 month period. (one month wait after vaccination and three months after the sample is taken.)

 

6.Entering Turkey by Air

airplane

All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the port of entry to Turkey. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense. Your pet should arrive at customs by 11:30AM for same day customs clearance.

 

Two pets per person can enter tax-free as long as they don't arrive unaccompanied. The owner must be present at customs clearance or have issued their representative a Power of Attorney and either an original passport or notarized copy indicating that they arrived in Turkey within 30 days of their pet.

 

7.Puppies and Kittens

Puppy or kitten import to Turkey

Puppies and kittens under 3 months of age can enter Turkey with their Mother who meets the requirements above OR with a health declaration obtained by an official veterinarian in a country where rabies is known to be controlled which states where the puppy or kitten was born and reared and that it is an environment where it has not been in contact with wild animals. Additionally, an endorsed veterinary certificate and health declaration stating that your pet is healthy enough to travel, is free of diseases communicable to humans and is free of internal and external parasites is required. Prior permission from the Ministry is required. The owner's passport should be available.

8.Banned Breeds

Banned Dogs in Turkey

Turkey does not permit the import of the following breeds or their crosses: Pit Bull Terriers, Japanese Tosa, American Pit Bull Terrier, Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Dogo Argentino, Fila Brasileiro, Rottweiller, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Neopolitan Mastiff, Spanish Mastiff, Dogue de Bordeux, Roman Fighting Dog, Bandog Tosa Inu, Mastiff, Tibetan Mastiff or similar, mongrel breeds.

 

9.Other Animals

rabbits turtles other animals

Birds are permitted entry with an import permit. 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 Turkey. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.

 

10.CITES

CITES endangered turtle

If your pet is not a dog, cat or ferret, and especially if it is a turtle or parrot, you should verify that it is not protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).  You will need to apply for additional permits if this is the case. Over 180 countries participate and enforce CITES regulations.
