“Are Pets Allowed into Dubai?”

Name: Marie
Number of Pets: 2
From: USA
To: Dubai, United Arab Emirates



I was looking on your website and looked at your country specific page to find out more information on bringing a pet to Dubai, and that country is blacked out and you can't click on it to get any info. Do you just not have any information or are pets not allowed into UAE?

Thank you!



Hi Marie,

Sorry to hear you've been having trouble... Pets are allowed into the UAE (with certain restrictions and when certain requirements are met). Those rules are outlined here and you can also take a look at this expatarrivals.com article about bringing pets to the UAE.

As you can see, this all depends on what kinds of pets you have, but in general microchips, rabies vaccines and an international health certificate will be in order. It's also important to choose a pet friendly airline and make sure you have the correct travel crates (that your pets feel comfortable spending time in).
