Starting August 1, 2023, the Swiss government will cancel the simplified rules for the import of animals from Ukraine. It is reported by blv.admin.ch.


New rules for importing pets to Switzerland: details


As you know, earlier Ukrainians traveling to Switzerland could cross the border with their pets under simplified conditions. 


Pets were allowed to transport dogs, cats, and ferrets with a minimum package of documents.


However, as of August 1, 2023, the country is abolishing the relevant rule.

From now on, the conditions of transportation will meet the general criteria of the European Union legislation, taking into account the specifics defined by Regulation (EU) No. 576/2013, including


• the animal must be identified by means of a microchip (transponder) or a clear-to-read tattoo applied before July 03, 2011; 


• the animal must have a valid rabies vaccination (the date of vaccination must not precede the date of application of the transponder or tattoo or the date of reading the transponder or tattoo indicated in the relevant section of the identification document; revaccination should be considered as primary vaccination if it was not carried out during the validity period of the previous vaccination) 


• a current serological test to determine the titer of rabies antibodies (the level of neutralizing antibodies to rabies virus in the blood serum equal to or greater than 0.5 IU/ml) must be performed. 


Important! The titers must be taken no earlier than one month after vaccination and no later than three months before entry.


• the animal must have an approved Animal Health Certificate form for non-commercial transportation to EU Member States and an import declaration. 


We remind you! Most people consider summer to be the best time to travel. Ukrainians who have settled in Switzerland use their vacations to visit relatives and friends. Learn more about how to get to Ukraine from Switzerland and find the most convenient route here.
