Taking Your Pets

Romania - Taking Your Pets


There are no restrictions on importing cats and dogs. However, all pets must have a microchip implant. Pets entering the country must also have proof of a recent veterinarian check and documentation that they are up to date on their rabies shots. A health certificate is required for all animals transported by air.

Veterinary clinics are abundant in Romania, though the quality of the care can sometimes be questionable.

Do not allow your pet to roam freely in Romanian communities as a rodent control program instituted by the Romanian Government sets out poison in areas likely to attract stray animals, such as trash bins and abandoned structures. This means that indoor pets are preferable to those that must stay outside.

If you are traveling from the US you will need APHIS form 7001 or from the EU form 998. If you are traveling from another country, your veterinarian will need to provide you with an International Health Certificate before your pet's departure.

Large dogs must wear a muzzle whenever traveling, even locally.
