In September 2019, Turkey added rabies antibody blood test requirements for all pets entering the country.
Pets entering Turkey are required to arrive within five days of their owners or authorized agent-- if not, additional fees may apply. To avoid delays and unexpected short-term quarantine, we follow these five steps in this order:
If your pet has a non-ISO microchip, you may wish to consider implanting a 15-digit microchip. Please ask your pet move manager or check the USDA website: www.aphis.usda.gov for details and options.
Please register with a local veterinarian to keep your pet's rabies vaccination up to date. Veterinarians typically send reminder notices when vaccinations are due. If another move is in your future, you and your pet will be ready.
Air Animal knows and understands the sequence of pet import requirements. We'll take care of all the details including which ID microchip to use, timing the rabies vaccination, issuing the EU Pet Travel Certificate, and arranging for the accredited veterinarian.
Pet moving made easy®. That's our focus. It's our passion.
