Pet Travel Question: Cat Travel to Dubai

Name: Derya
Number of Pets: Two cats
Pet Type: Cat
From: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
To: Dubai, UAE


We need assistance in figuring out the procedures to move our cats from KSA to the UAE. Our one cat is male, four years old , neutralized, originally from Turkey and has a microchip from Turkey. The second cat is a female, one year old, neutralized and from Saudi with no microchip. The vaccinations are done on a regular basis. Please let us know what kind of documents are needed and what tests should be done before we move. Our plan is to move within September to Dubai.




Hi Derya,

Thank you for your question -- we'd love to assist. First, look over these pet import requirements for the United Arab Emirates. You'll see that a few steps are necessary to get your cats ready to go to Dubai, including securing health certificates and import permits. Your second cat will need to be microchipped, as well.

If this information seems confusing and you're looking for further assistance,  please consider filling out our free quote form for a price estimate of our services. Many people choose to hire professional pet shippers when moving their pets, and we'd be happy to tell you more about what we do.

Thanks again for contacting us, and good luck with everything!
