Russia - Taking Your Pets


There is no requirement to quarantine pet dogs and cats being brought into Russia, as long as they hold the necessary vaccination documents. An import permit is not required. There are stricter regulations for birds and other animals.

Cats and dogs must have a valid international veterinary document (international pet passport) showing proof of vaccination within the last 12 months against rabies and feline/canine infectious diseases. Dogs and cats being brought in from the USA who have had a 3-year rabies vaccine more than 12 months before must be revaccinated, as the 3-year vaccine is not valid in Russia.

The veterinary documents must be either in English or must be translated into Russian and notarized.

There are a number of good veterinary clinics in Moscow, and pet food and supplies are widely available.
