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

Yes. But if your dog, cat or ferret is not already microchipped, this will be done by a veterinarian in Norway. Pets other than dogs, cats and ferrets must undergo a clinical examination by a veterinarian in Norway. All pets must be registered with and checked by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority to allow them to be ID marked.

If possible, arrival with animals must be notified in advance to the Norwegian Food Safety Authority. (

If the pre-entry rabies antibody titration test has not been performed, the test can now be done in Norway. The pet must be quarantined at a quarantine station or at an establishment of equivalent biosecurity, until an antibody titer higher than 0.5 IU/ml is documented. Then an individual assessment will be made for the possibility of home isolation of the pet, at a given address.

All pets that are unvaccinated against rabies on arrival, must be kept in quarantine. There they will be vaccinated against rabies. After vaccination, the animal must undergo a rabies antibody test. This test will be carried out on a blood sample collected at least 30 days after the date of vaccination. After the animal has had a valid rabies antibody test, the animal must be quarantined for another 3 months from the collection date of the blood sample. This means that animals that are unvaccinated at the time of arrival to Norway must be quarantined for at least 4 months.

If dogs have not been treated (by a veterinarian) for tapeworm infection within 1-5 days before entry into Norway, they will be treated as soon as possible after entry. All faeces must be collected and disposed of in the residual wastebins for a minimum of 5 days after arrival to Norway.

Refugees from Ukraine will not be charged financially for this handling or any inflicted quarantine of their pets.

How can I travel with my pet on a plane?

There are several airlines that allow flight with a pet onboard. It is up to each airplane to establish their regulations and additional tariffs will be generally perceived. Therefore we advise you to get in contact with the specific airline.

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.ย 

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

All Ukrainian pets must be registered with the Norwegian Food Safety Authority to allow them to be ID marked, as well as ensuring they receive a rabies vaccine and any necessary parasite treatments. The Norwegian Food Safety Authority will quarantine animals where this is necessary. The state will cover all costs for tests, ID marking, vaccination, parasite treatments and quarantine.
