Veterinary and entry requirements
Legally regulated entry regulations apply for entry into Germany. Please note these regulations, the most important are:
- EU pet passport or vaccination card/pet passport
- Identification by microchip (tattoo only for dogs with their date of delivery before July 3rd, 2011)
- valid vaccination against rabies (at least 21 days old)
- For entry or re-entry from a non-EU country, a document check or identity check must always be carried out. For this you have to register with the dog customs.
We recommend the following link for entry:
Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (german)
Animal Welfare Act
Please also note the valid German Animal Welfare Act! (german)
Questions and answers about digital entry registration, the obligation to provide evidence and quarantine, etc. can be found on the website of the Federal Ministry of Health.
