I have a dog and I want to send it to my friend in Pakistan as present. What shall I do? What are the necessary documents or procedures I need to know about so my dog will surely and safely reach my friend in Pakistan?
Thank you for your inquiry! We'd be happy to discuss your pet transport options to Pakistan.
To start, take a look at the pet import requirements for Pakistan. Essentially you'll need to make sure your dog is up-to-date on basic vaccines (including rabies), and the necessary paperwork needs to be in order.
To double check what is needed when coming from Cyprus, we recommend reaching out directly to a Pakistan government source, such as the Pakistan Ministry of Agriculture or Animal Quarantine Department.
In general, it's also important to choose a pet-friendly airline and secure an airline-approved crate -- you can read more of our essential pet travel tips here.
You can find more information about all of this on our website, and you're welcome to contact us if you'd like to find out more about our door-to-door services and options for shipping dogs to Pakistan.
Hope this helps! Thanks for the question, and good luck with everything!
