With a dog to Albania


Albania is Non-EU country, but bordering country, and requirements are very similar to EU. The country develops tourism, including traveling with dogs or cats. There are special Regulations and Pet Passport requirements to enter the country.

If your pets meet the following requirements, Albania does not quarantine them. All requirements are also valid for service and emotional support animals.

Your pet must be microchipped first to enter Albania. The chip should be compliant with an ISO 11784/11785 - a15 digit pet microchip. If your pet's microchip is not ISO compliant, you can bring your own microchip scanner.

For pets entering Albania from a rabies-free or rabies-controlled country, your pet must be vaccinated for rabies minimum 30 days prior to entry and  before the expiration date of the vaccine. If your pet has been vaccinated before microchipping, it will have to be vaccinated again after microchipping, and wait 21 days before entering Albania.

Rabies Titer Test
A rabies titer test is not required for pets entering Albania from any country.

Health Certificate
Within 10 days of travel, an accredited veterinarian must issue the bi-lingual health certificate for Albania for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are not traveling from either of these countries, endorsement is not required unless your country requires it. An EU Pet Passport cannot be used instead of health certificate.
