Requirements for travelling to Liechtenstein with pets
Liechtenstein is a microstate situated between Austria and Switzerland. The country has marvelous nature, which is why it is a popular tourist destination in Europe. If you’ve been looking for a country to spend your next holiday with a pet, Liechtenstein is a perfect place!
Before the journey, you should check the pet import policy of the country you will visit. Although Liechtenstein is not an EU member state, the same conditions apply there.
To bring a pet (dog, cat or ferret) to Liechtenstein, consider the following requirements:
· Your pet must be microchipped with an ISO 11784/11785 compliant microchip. The tattoo is also allowed if it was applied before 3 July 2011;
· The pet must have a valid rabies vaccination, the details of which must be indicated in a pet passport or veterinary certificate. A period of 21 days must elapse after the vaccination;
· For pets from countries with a high risk of rabies (not listed in Annex II of Regulation (EC) No 577/2013), an antibody titer test is also required. You can find the full list of third countries here;
· You must provide a document for the pet’s identification. You can use a pet passport if you come from another European state. For pets from third countries, it is usually a veterinary certificate completed and issued by a licensed veterinarian in the country of origin within 48 hours before the journey;
· Five pets can be brought to Liechtenstein by one person. You can bring more animals if they participate in competitions, exhibitions, sporting events and preparations for them. For this, each pet must be at least 6 months old, and the owner must provide written proof of registration for one of these events.
