pet export cyprus

Fetchapet fly cats and dogs to both Northern and Southern Cyprus. We are BA recommended pet shippers with 30 years’ experience flying pets.

Greek (Southern) Cyprus

Pet dogs and cats must be microchipped and have the microchip number recorded on all veterinary documents. Microchipping must be undertaken before the required vaccinations are given to enable the Official Veterinarian (OV) or Local Veterinary Inspector (LVI) Veterinary Surgeon of DEFRA to identify the animal when completing any paperwork.

All dogs and cats entering Cyprus must be in possession of a European Pet Passport issued by a Government approved veterinarian.

Your cat or dog must have a vaccination against rabies when the pet is over 12 weeks of age and at least 21 days prior to export.

A health certificate must be completed in the UK Passport indicating the animal is fit to travel between 1 and 5 days prior to export. Fetchapet can attend to all of these treatments if required.

Your pet may be subject to a veterinary inspection on arrival in Cyprus and if so, there will also be a fee payable to the Cypriot Government.

TRNC (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus)

There are currently no airlines who can carry pets into Turkish Cyprus, which means they must travel into Larnaca or Paphos and so must also comply with the regulations for entry into Southern (Greek) Cyprus as above prior to shipment. Pets then must travel onwards by road to the final destination. There are border inspection protocols in place for this which must be adhered to but we do have agents available in both Turkish and Southern Cyprus who can assist you with this if required.

Pet dogs and cats must be microchipped and have the microchip number recorded on all veterinary certificates. Microchipping must be undertaken before the required vaccinations are given to enable the Official Veterinarian (OV) or Local Veterinary Inspector (LVI) Veterinary Surgeon of DEFRA to identify the animal when completing any paperwork.

Dogs and cats require an import permit and may be subject to up to a 30 day quarantine period in a Government Quarantine Establishment. Owners are expected to feed and clean their own pets in the quarantine station.

Dogs and cats must be microchipped and vaccinated against rabies when they are at least 3 months old and not more than 6 months prior to shipment.

Pets must also have a rabies blood test undertaken at least 30 days after the vaccination.

A DEFRA Export Health Certificate is required for entry into Turkish Cyprus and this must be signed by an Official Veterinarian (OV) or Local Veterinary Inspector (LVI) of DEFRA.

We will attend to your pet’s airline reservations and we will attend to, or guide you through, the completion of all the necessary pre-export documentation.
