From: Dubai, UAE
To: Johannesburg, South Africa
Pets: Cats, Gyn & Mat
What are the requirements for cats leaving Dubai and going to Johannesburg? I have heard there might be a quarantine but I would like to know for sure. I have found plenty of info regarding travel from the UK or U.S. but not specifically from the Middle East to Africa.
According to this Import Procedures document
from the above mentioned site, cats are not routinely placed in quarantine upon arrival (even though the UAE is not on the list of approved countries for dogs). Cats do need to have valid import permits and correctly completed health certificates, however, signed and stamped by an approved local veterinarian.
