How do I cross the border with an animal?

If you are traveling with an animal, follow the following rules:
a) dogs, cats, and ferrets have to have the relevant microchip implanted and you need to have a document confirming their vaccination against rabies dated no more than 12 months before your travel date. The identity of the animal needs to be verifiable, i.e. their microchip needs to match their vaccination data.
b) other animals (rodents, rabbits, amphibians, reptiles, aquarium pets, invertebrates) can cross the border with you freely and there are no restrictions but the final decision is taken by the National Revenue Administration when you cross the border.

The above requirements are minimum requirements due to the current situation. Every traveller whose animal does not meet one or more standard requirements has to fill in a declaration. Full information and example declaration can be found at:
