Pet Travel Question: Moving Pets to Turkey

Name: Ily
Number of Pets: 3
Pet Type: 2 dogs, 1 cat
From: United Arab Emirates
To: Turkey


I heard that for customs reasons, only one pet per person   is allowed to enter Turkey. Is this a strict rule? All my pets are rescue, mix breeds. I appreciate any information you can provide.

Thanks and regards,

Hi Ily! Thanks for contacting us with your pet travel question, and we’re happy to hear you’re the owner of three rescues!

Current Turkish Import Regulations restrict the import of dogs to one per person. We recommend double checking with the appropriate Turkish customs officials to find out about your options, but unfortunately it sounds like you’ll have to either enlist traveling companions or make more than one trip.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any more questions, Ily. Good luck with your travels!
