3.2.12. What laws and recommendations are available for dog importation?

Veterinary Services and, depending on the country, Customs Services have a key role in preventing introduction of rabies into rabies free areas or into a rabies free country. Any country should have legislation specifying the requirements for live dog importation. General recommendations on safe dog importation are described in the provisions on trade with dogs available here. Model veterinary certificates provided by the veterinary authority of the exporting country for importation of dogs and cats, in particular from rabies affected countries, are available here.
