Pet Travel Question: Moving a Dog from South Korea to Indonesia

Name: Amelia
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Miniature Poodle
From: Incheon, South Korea
To: Jakarta, Indonesia


We're moving from South Korea to Jakarta, Indonesia in a few months time. We understand the regulations differ depending whether your pet is coming from a rabies free country or not. We can't find information on what the specific requirements will be in our case? Is South Korea now considered a rabies free country? What will be the requirements for our pet?

Thank you for your help :)


Hi Amelia,

Thanks for your questions. South Korea is not currently considered a rabies-free country, which means that your dog will have to meet all of Indonesia's pet import requirements in order to be allowed into the country. As you'll notice, this includes several health certifications, an import permit, and endorsements of all documents by South Korea's equivalent of the USDA (the Ministry of Agriculture). Additionally, your dog will be subject to a mandatory 7 - 14 day quarantine upon arrival in Jakarta.

For more information about what it's like to move a dog to Jakarta, check out the story of Izzy, a dog we helped move from Alaska to Jakarta last year.
