Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Turkey has actively supported our country. In particular, it accepts Ukrainian refugees. Citizens of Ukraine have the right to import dogs, cats, ferrets, birds, and other domestic and decorative animals into Turkish territory, subject to compliance with certain rules.


Current rules for the entry of pets into the territory of Turkey


1. The animal must be chipped.

2. Vaccination against rabies must be carried out on the day specified in the relevant section of the passport or veterinary certificate. This date must coincide with or be later than the insertion or application of the chip. If a booster vaccination was not given within the validity period of the previous one, this dose is considered the first.

3. The veterinarian should take a blood serum antibody titration test three months before the animal's departure to Turkey. At least 30 days have passed since the last vaccination against rabies.

4. The owner must present a veterinary certificate for the pet, issued and approved by the relevant service in Ukraine.


Entry of animals that cannot be vaccinated due to age


Unvaccinated puppies, kittens, other pets and decorative animals under three months of age may enter provided they comply with the sanitary standards determined by the local Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, taking into account the state of animal health in the country of origin.


Attention! Entry to the territory of Turkey is impossible without a veterinary passport.
