Bringing a cat into Dubai/Sharjah/AbuDhabi

Post Posted: Tue Apr 07, 2009 8:06 pm

I've tried to find this information online, but I'm getting conflicting information from what seem to be commercial sites.

I'm hoping someone with experience or actual know-how can help me on this.

1. What is the paperwork that I need to get done to get her out of the airport without any quarantine?

2. If I get the RNATT blood test done, can I avoid quarantine completely?

3. How long is the quarantine for domesticated cats?

4. What is the "import permit" in Dubai and where do I turn to, to get this?

5. I have heard there is some letter of permission that I have to get from the UAE Ministry of Environment & Water, how do I go about getting this.

If it makes any difference:
1. My husband and I both have our residency permits stamped on our passports.
2. Our cat's vaccines and worm medication are uptodate and she has been microchipped
3. I am considering getting her RNATT blood test done, but only if it means she can avoid quarantine completely.

Any advice from your personal experience or that of your immediate family/friends will be extremely welcome.

Does it make a difference in procedures if we arrive at Dubai, Sharjah or Abu Dhabi?
