Rules and regulations for taking your pet to Malta
In order to reduce your stress when moving, it’s important that you’re aware of a few rules and regulations regarding pet transport.
Before arranging your pet’s transportation to Malta, it’s important to ensure that you have proof of vaccination from at least 30 days (but not more than a year) from your pet’s departure. Unvaccinated pets are prohibited from entering Malta, so this should be at the top of your list of things to do.
A microchip will be necessary for your pet to be accepted into Malta. All cats and dogs will require an ISO 11784/11785 compliant 15-digit microchip. If they do not have one that is ISO compliant, you can contact Border Inspection and inquire whether they have scanners that can read your pet’s microchip.
Your pet will also need a rabies vaccine at least 21 days before travelling to Malta. This will allow you to get a pet passport document which can all be done at your local vet.
You should ensure that you’ve lodged an import permit application with the Maltese administration. There are so many steps involved in getting your pet ready for Malta, this is why we recommend you come to us so that we can help you organise your pet’s travel.
As long as the previous requirements are met, your pet will not need to enter quarantine upon reaching Malta. We’re IPATA certified, so you can ensure that we can provide expert and trustworthy advice when it comes to shipping your pet – and we strongly advise that you begin organising your pet’s transport at least a month before travelling.
