As an EU national, you can freely travel with your cat, dog or ferret if it has a European pet passport.
This passport is available from any authorised veterinarian and must contain details of a valid anti-rabies vaccination.
What do I need to take my dog to Europe?
Your pet will need an EU pet passport, a microchip, a rabies vaccination and a tapeworm treatment (for dogs). You must wait 21 days from the date of the rabies vaccination before travelling, and make sure your pet is microchipped first – otherwise the rabies jab won’t count.

Can my dog travel to Europe with me?
Bringing Your Pets To Europe Is Now Easy. Bringing pets to the European Union (EU) from the U.S. or Canada is much easier than it once was. For dogs and cats, especially, the days of long quarantines are gone, paperwork is standardized, and—once within the EU—a “pet passport” valid throughout the EU can be issued.
How long is EU pet passport valid for?
This certificate is valid for travel throughout the EU for four months, until you leave the EU or until your pet’s rabies vaccination expires.
