More and more families prefer to travel together with their pets. People take furry friends with them on vacations, business trips, family holidays, etc.

To cross the border of most countries in the world, the animal must have a number of vaccinations and supporting documents.

Recently, the procedure for entering Ukraine with pets was simplified.

How to visit Ukraine with pets? The current rules are below.


Rules for importing animals into Ukraine


When passing border control when entering Ukraine, pet owners must provide the following documents:

Where can you get documents for transporting an animal


This package of documents must be completed by pet owners before traveling in the country of residence.

You can chip and vaccinate an animal at a veterinary clinic. It is necessary to do this in advance, before crossing the border. After the procedure, the veterinarian will provide you with supporting documents.

An animal passport of the European model is issued by an authorized veterinarian after checking the documents and the health of the animal. The document is filled out in English and is valid until the end of the animal's life.

We will remind you! Ukrainians who left abroad after the start of the full-scale invasion with their pets and plan to return to Ukraine pass border control also under a simplified procedure.
