Pet Travel Question: Moving to Lebanon from the US

Name: Marwa
Number of Pets: One
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Pit bull Mix
From: Orlando, United States
To: Lebanon


I would like to know how to get my dog from Orlando to Lebanon. I'll be using Lufthansa airlines and am just wondering about the exact paperwork needed for import and export.

Thank you,

Hello Marwa,

Thanks for your question! Here are the pet import requirements for Lebanon. In addition to getting all your vaccines and a microchip, you'll need an International Health Certificate as well (that's the APHIS 7001).

Please contact us if you have any questions about this! We'd be happy to offer you a consultation for our services if you're interested in enlisting some help.

Thanks again and good luck!

Hi Thabet, thanks for your question.

It's important to follow the rules as they're outlined by the Lebanon government, so if it says rabies vaccines need to be at least 30 days old, that's what you'll need to do.

Please know that our clients often end up traveling before their pets while they wait for the veterinary requirements to align, as pets don't have to travel with their owners in most cases. This may be a good option for you if you have to get going and have a trusted friend/boarding facility where your dog can stay.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you're interested in learning about our pet transport services, and good luck with everything.
