What do I have to do to take my cat to Turkey in terms of shots, etc.? Can she travel with me in the plane as a carry on?


Hi Charlotte,

These are the pet import requirements for Turkey. It's a good idea to allow yourself plenty of time to complete these, and in terms of flying you'll want to contact the airline to find out about their pet-policies and most up-to-date rules regarding cabin travel. Remember that, with a pet-safe airline, flying your pet in the cargo area is a safe choice.
