Cat Travel to Germany

Dear PetRelocation,

My boyfriend and I are moving to Berlin, Germany and I want to bring my cat with me. I'd like to know what exactly I need to do to get it done, how much it will cost, and how to go about getting this started if it is a possibility.




Hi Melissa,

Thanks for your questions. Please take a look at this overview of the pet import requirements for Germany. Your cat will need a microchip, full vaccinations, and an EU health certificate. Documents will also need to be endorsed by the USDA, and you need an international health certificate issued by your vet, as well.

As you can see, you'll want to allow a few weeks to plan and carry out these steps. It's important to buy an airline-approved travel crate, as well, and also book a flight with a pet friendly airline.

If you'd like help arranging your move, please fill out our online consultation form. The cost will depend on a few factors, but with more details we'll be able to give you an estimate.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have more questions, and have a safe trip to Germany.
