Pet Travel Question: Traveling With A Tortoise

Name: Sara
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Tortoise
Pet Breed: Russian
From: Netherlands
To: Poland


What are the regulations for taking a tortoise from the Netherlands to Poland? I moved it already from the UK to the Netherlands and had no issues—they didn't require any documents for this specific type of tortoise.



Hi Sara,

It sounds like you're in a pretty good spot, considering that you've moved your tortoise before and know how it works. Since Poland is also in the EU, the process should be similar to your Netherlands import experience. For future reference, here's our general guide to traveling with exotic pets.

To be safe you'll probably want to contact the Polish Ministry of Agriculture for the most up-to-date information. Good luck with everything, and please let us know if you have more questions.
