Do I need passport/vaccination certificate/chip to enter the country with a pet?

Hungary has simplified the process for pets entering from Ukraine. Until further notice, an entry registration form can be considered equal to the so-called "prior authorization" application. This will allow entry, traceability of the animals, other actions if needed. Find the registration form here mceclip0.png.

Many veterinary offices mceclip0.png help to arrange vaccination and paperwork for animals joining their people from Ukraine. The mandatory rabies vaccinations and the microchip are free for people with Ukrainian passports.

How can I travel with my pet on a plane?

There are several airlines that allow flights with a pet onboard. It is up to each airline to establish its regulations and additional tariffs will be generally perceived. Therefore we advise you to contact with the specific airline before you travel.

The general rule is that pets (together with their crate) which remain below a certain weight may be carried in the cabin, whereas pets exceeding such threshold weight must be carried in the cargo area.

What's required to keep the pet in a given country?

Currently, there are no restrictions. Once you cross the country with your pet and check with a vet regarding the vaccinations/documents, there are no more things to do.
