VETERINARY PROTOCOL AND ADMINISTRATIVE STEPS REGARDING YOUR DOG, CAT AND OTHER ANIMALS TRANSPORT TO MALAYSIA
To take your pet along with you to Malaysia, you need to have:
- A pet passport. Your vet will be able to provide you with one
- A microchip for identification purposes
- Their up-to-date vaccinations. (The vaccine against rabies must date more than 30 days, but less than a year prior to departure.)
For once, there’s no difference in terms of transporting domestic animals – dogs or cats!
- An import permit application is to be lodged with the Malaysian administration (the DVS), with this permit remaining valid for one month.
- Book the quarantine that is compulsory upon the arrival of your pet in Kuala Lumpur. The quarantine lasts at least seven days.
- Your departure has been arranged, you have the permit, you’ve booked quarantine, now you just have to have an international certificate of good health issued within seven days prior to departure. This certificate must be issued by your vet on a separate sheet.
- The pet passport and certificate of good health must be approved by the Departmental Directorate for Public Protection (the “DDPP”) in your region. The official vet will stamp them in order to legalise them.
Now your pet is finally ready for their great trip to Malaysia! They’ll be spoilt by the splendid beaches of the East, the jungle, and the liveliness of the West.
