Requirements for travelling to Kyrgyzstan with pets
If you want to visit Kyrgyzstan with a pet, you should first familiarize yourself with the country’s import policy. Kyrgyzstan is a member of the EAEU, so there apply requirements approved by the decision of the Customs Union Commission No. 317.
· All pets must be vaccinated against rabies regardless of the country of origin. The vaccination must be carried out between 30 days and 12 months before the journey;
· In addition to rabies vaccination, pets must be vaccinated against other infectious diseases no later than 20 days before the journey. Dogs must be vaccinated against Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Adenovirus and Leptospirosis and cats against Calicivirus, Panleukopenia and Rhinotracheitis;
· Pets entering Kyrgyzstan must be accompanied by an identification document. An international pet passport can be provided if you travel with up to 2 pets. But if you want to take more pets, you will have to provide a veterinary certificate for each of them;
· If your pet doesn’t have an international pet passport, you must also obtain the Customs Union veterinary certificate. It must be completed and issued by an authorized veterinarian in your country. You can find a template on the Eurasian Commission website;
· Tapeworm treatment is not required but recommended for safety issues.
When you bring no more than 2 pets to Kyrgyzstan, and if all the conditions above are met, quarantine is not required.
