This completes your cat or dog passport for Iceland.

Some dangerous dog breeds are prohibited from entering Iceland.

Puppies and kittens: if entering Iceland from countries which Iceland considers to be rabies-free, puppies and kittens can enter at the age of 5 months. If entering from any other country, the minimum age is 7 months.

Countries without rabies (dogs and cats who have remained in a country without rabies 6 months prior to importation) do not have to be vaccinated against rabies: Australia, Faroe Islands, Finland, Great Britain, Hawaii, Ireland, Japan, New-Zealand, Norway (Svalbard not included), Sweden.

The District Veterinarian inspects all pets at the Airport of Entry upon arrival to Iceland and ascertains that they do not have any symptoms of infectious diseases, that Import Permits, all required Certificates and a positive comment from the Chief Veterinary Officer of Iceland are on hand.

The dog/cat must be transported from the country of export to Iceland without coming in contact with other animals. If the dog/cat comes from a country without rabies, transport through a country with rabies is not permitted unless the dog/cat remains in the international zone of the airport.

Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet may be refused entry and the relevant authority in consultation with an authorized veterinarian can decide to return the pet home, at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for pet, or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be arranged.

All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements and have a health certificate to accompany them. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.
