Pet Move Destination - Germany
Whatever your reason for relocating to Germany, a PCS military transfer with the Armed Forces, contract employment with DoD, or a corporate transfer, Air Animal has the knowledge and the experience to provide you with “pet moving made easy” solutions to your pet’s air transport needs from the USA and its territories to the Federal Republic of Germany..
Germany allows pets (dogs, cats, ferrets, etc) in without quarantine provided:
- the pet is micro chipped for ease of identification prior to the Rabies vaccination.
- the pet has been Rabies vaccinated at least 30 days prior to entry and not more than 365 days prior to entry.
- the microchip number is recorded on the Rabies vaccination certificate.
- and it is accompanied by the proper international health certificates; a bilingual EU 998/2003 pet travel certificate endorsed by the USDA and the accompanying Rabies vaccination.
- International health certificates issued by US Armed Forces veterinarians do not require USDA export endorsement by the USDA.
- puppies may be imported into Germany at the minimum age of 10 weeks, and not more than 12 weeks of age without a Rabies immunization.
- for the importation of puppies into Germany between the ages of 10 weeks & 12 weeks, an import permit is required.
- For puppies older than 12 weeks of age, Rabies vaccinations must be at least 30 days old at the time of entry.
- should you plan to move more than five (5) pets to Germany, an import permit is required.
- The consignee/importer of family pets into Germany will be required to pay for destination shelter fees, veterinary inspection fees, and customs clearance charges at the time of receiving the pets at the Frankfurt Border Inspection Point at the Frankfurt Airport.
