Pet Travel Question: Italy Requirements

Name: Debbie
Number of Pets: One
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Goldendoodle
From: West Virginia
To: Italy

I have a client that wants to get a puppy from me and wants me to send it to Italy. I have been trying to find out what is required.

1) I have found that the dog must have a Rabies shot (so I will need to keep the pup until 12 weeks for that).
2) Then I found out the dog cannot fly until 30 days after the rabies shot (so we're now at 16 weeks).
3) I have found out that the dog must have a 15 digit micro-chip.
4) I have found out we do need an international health certificate.
5) have heard that the dog needs a form called the 998 - is that the same as the international health certificate? If not, where do I get that form?
6) Also I heard that someone would need to translate all the info - is that true?
7) Is there anything else I need to know to get the pup to Italy?

Thanks,
Debbie



Hi Debbie,

Here are the pet import requirements for Italy. You're certainly on the right track with the above information; as you can see, you need a rabies vaccine and certificate, microchip and health certificate (which is the EU 998 and can be downloaded from our site).

Give us a call
if you have any more questions, and good luck with everything!
