Pet Import Regulations in Serbia



Pet relocation is not necessarily a tiresome process; one just needs to know the basics of how to go through it.

Just like any other expatriate-to-be, your pet must have its own passport. The acquisition of a Pet Passport is part of the European Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) which aims to speed up and simplify the process of travelling with pets.

The Pet Passport contains documentation of your pet's information, which this also includes details about its vaccinations.

Once you have acquired this document, you must also have an ISO-compatible microchip implanted on your pet. This would serve as its official identification. You can inquire from a company offering international pet relocation service to Serbia regarding where and how to get this done.

You must also visit your official or government approved veterinarian from your home country to provide an International Health Certificate that proves your pet's current health condition and that it is rabies free.

The rabies vaccination must be administered within a time frame of no less than 15 days and no more than six months at the time of importation to Serbia. At the same time, you should get in touch with a pet transport service or pet relocation service to obtain an import quarantine permit and import permit.

The permits are valid for three months from the date of issuance. As for the quarantine, this is done at the expat's home.

Relocating pets to Serbia does take some effort on the owner's part, as is with any other expat destination. Surely though, this is something you'd be willing to go through for a precious loved one you want to take with you on this new journey.
