Pet Travel Question: Importing Pets to Sabah, Malaysia

Name: Anina
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Cat
From: Norway
To: Sabah

Has anyone moved a cat to SabahMalaysia? It's very difficult to find information about Sabah, because like Sarawak the restrictions concerning quarantine are different than in mainland Malaysia. Can you offer some advice?




Hi Anina,

We have moved pets to Sabah, and you're right, it's a tricky spot to research because of its remoteness and particular pet import requirements. We'd be happy to share what we learned from our experiences, of course.

Take a look at this blog post for a rundown of what it takes to move pets to Sabah and Sarawak (two Malaysian states on the island of Borneo, for those who are unaware). Norway is a Category 2 country, so you'll follow the requirements listed in that section, which include having updated vaccines and fulfilling a quarantine upon arrival.

It's understandable that you'd still be uncertain about a few things after reviewing this information, so please contact PetRelocation if you'd like some assistance. Good luck with everything, and we hope to hear from you again soon!
