Since 2006, when importing an animal in the European Union from a country that is not part of the EU, dogs, cats and household ferrers should be equipped with a chip or have a distinct unique stamp. To clarify the entire package of necessary documents, we recommend contacting the airport veterinary service and the consulate of the country of arrival or transit.
Most international airlines accept the documents on the animal only in English.
It is also worth remembering that in many countries there are restrictions on the import of animal species. For example, for more than ten years in Denmark, Spain, Italy and Sweden, it is forbidden to import dog breed dogs.
