Taking Your PetsBack to top Back to main Skip to menu
Cyprus - Taking Your Pets
Northern Cyprus is not a member of the EU and is not covered by the Pet Travel Scheme. In order to bring pets into Northern Cyprus you need to obtain an import permit from the North Cyprus Veterinary Service. Cats and dogs must have a health certificate signed by an official government officer in their home country, and must be quarantined for six months on arrival in Northern Cyprus, after being vaccinated against rabies and treated for echinoccus and ectoparasites. Certain breeds of dog cannot be brought into Northern Cyprus.
Added March 2007 by Mrs J Hall:
Your outline advice on taking pets to Cyprus seems clear and straightforward, BUT there is no mention of possible hazards for animals once they are there.
My stepdaughter recently took her two cats to Cyprus, where they were poisoned within a couple of weeks. If it's general practice for anyone to put down poison (to keep strays down?) I would like to make other people aware.
