Pet Travel Question: Does Malaysia have a quarantine?

Name: Alexandra

Good morning, we are about to move from Slovakia to Malaysia for about three months. Could you please let me know what I need to do to be able to take my pet with me? Is there a quarantine needed after entering Malaysia? Thank you for your help in advance.


Hi Alexandra,

Thanks for the question, we hope we can help! Here are the pet import requirements for Malaysia. As you can see, in addition to requiring a microchip, rabies vaccine, etc., they do impose a quarantine from most countries. Here's another source that may be helpful.

Please review this information, check with the Malaysian Veterinary Department, and contact us if you have any more questions. Also, if you're considering our services, you can request a free quote here.

Good luck!
