Traveling with Pets - Vaccination and Papers
Dogs and cats may be brought into Germany from non-EU countries on the EU approved list without the need for quarantine, provided that vaccinations are up to date. Anyone traveling with pets within the EU must have a European Union Pet Passport.
The following are required when entering Germany with your pet:
Valid rabies vaccination (at least 30 days but no more than 12 months prior to entry into Germany)
Bilingual veterinary certificate (English/German)
Your pet needs to be identified by a microchip (standard: ISO 11784 or ISO11785); your veterinarian can do this.
Additional details can be found on the official Web site of the German Embassy.
Air Travel with Pets
Notify your airline well in advance about your pet and ask about their pet policy; some airlines require an international health certificate.
Germany is a member of the International Guide Dog Federation. Nevertheless, a guide dog must fulfill the usual requirements regarding vaccination and identification before being allowed entry to Germany. Assistance dogs are welcome in many places throughout Germany.
