Travelling with Cats & Dogs from Sri Lanka to Doha, Qatar

Health Requirements for Pet Cats and Dogs entering Qatar

  1. 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.
  2. Fully vaccinated including boosters (dogs DHLP and Rabies, cats TriCat/PCH and Rabies)
  3. Vaccinations last given more than 30 days, and less than 1 year before import date
  4. Must have a functioning / readable microchip
  5. 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.
  6. Import permit which we can arrange for you (valid for 30 days once issued)
  7. 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
  8. Government health certificate from country of export, issued less than 14 days before arrival
  9. One pet permitted per passport/Qatar ID
