Pets to Bring into Belgium

As with most countries in the EU, Belgium is a member of the Pet Travel Scheme. This scheme allows pet carnivores (dogs, cats and ferrets) from any of the countries covered by the scheme to enter the country without quarantine, as long asd they meet specified anti-rabies, blood sampling and anti-worm/ anti-tick hygiene requirements.

To qualify for the Pet Travel Scheme, the pet must:

  • Be fitted with a microchip;
  • Be vaccinated against rabies;
  • Be blood tested to check the effectiveness of the Rabies vaccination;
  • Be issued with an Official Pet Passport (or a Pet Travel Scheme Certificate).

If returning to your home country, the pet must be treated first in Belgium for ticks and tapeworm.
