Pet Import Regulations in Kuala Lumpur



Many people have pets in Malaysia, but you should consider your housing options before bringing a pet to Kuala Lumpur. If you are residing in a high-rise apartment, a large pet might not be suitable. Pets coming from Australia, New Zealand and Europe do not have to be put on quarantine. Pets coming from all other countries need to be quarantined for a week.

Incoming passengers to Malaysia can import up to two pets at one time, including domestic animals such as dogs, birds, cats, etc. You are required to show the animal’s health certificates from their country of origin, along with an import permit.
