Health Requirements for Pet Cats and Dogs entering Qatar
- Minimum 7 months old at time of import. For example, young pets should have had their rabies vaccine at the minimum 3 months of age, wait a minimum of 30 days before completing the RNATT, then complete the 90-day wait post RNATT blood-draw, therefore able to travel at the earliest age of 7 months.
- Fully vaccinated including boosters (dogs DHLP and Rabies, cats TriCat/PCH and Rabies)
- Vaccinations last given more than 30 days, and less than 1 year before import date
- Must have a functioning / readable microchip
- Rabies Neutralising Antibody Titre Test (RNATT). This blood test must have been completed a minimum of 90 days and a maximum of 12 months prior to the date of import and conducted at an approved laboratory. The titre result must be equivalent to or greater than 0.5 IU/ML.
- Import permit which we can arrange for you (valid for 30 days once issued)
- Arrival to Qatar as either accompanied baggage (cheaper and easier) or manifested cargo (travelling unaccompanied – more complicated and expensive) permitted. Either way we can assist with all import requirements
