Pet Passport Albania
Regulations for taking a pet dog or cat to Albania
Albania does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:
- Import License
- Rabies vaccination at least 30 days and not more than 12 months prior to travel.
- Within 10 days of travel, the Veterinary Certificate for Albania must be completed by a USDA or CFIA licensed veterinarian and endorsed by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada.
- A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included for endorsement.
- Unaccompanied pets traveling as manifest cargo will need a health certificate issued within 10 days of travel. Your airlines may also require a health certificate even if your pet is traveling with you in the cabin or as checked baggage.
This completes a passport for your dog or cat to enter Albania.
You must make prior arrangements for the Country Veterinarian to meet your pet on arrival for inspection; there is a fee for the inspection.
Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet will be refused entry or returned to the country of origin or placed in quarantine, all at the expense of the person responsible for your pet.
Inspection: All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease
communicable to humans when examined at the port of entry to Albania. If
your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a
licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.
Other Animals: Birds, 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 Albania. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.
Veterinary Certificate: All countries have unique veterinary certificates. This form may differ from the veterinary certificate issued by veterinarians in the United States. (APHIS 7001) It is an essential part of the cat or dog passport.
Pet Microchip: Although Albania does not require a pet microchip, we strongly recommend that you microchip your cat or dog prior to traveling.
