As importing country health requirements may change without advice to the Department you should check the import permit and/or the country’s website carefully at the time of preparation for export.
It is the responsibility of the exporter to use the appropriate bilingual health certificate and ensure that this and any accompanying declarations are in English and Russian.
Australian Departmental officers will
not endorse health certification for dogs and cats destined to the Russian Federation if only presented in a language other than English.
Refer to the
instructions on how to bring a pet to Russia. The bilingual Veterinary certificate for fur animals, rabbits, dogs and cats, imported to the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) from third countries (Form No. 15 (PDF 93 KB)) should be used (certificate current at November 2021).
The vaccination requirements that follow were sourced from the FSVPS website in November 2021:
According to the legislation of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) animals must be given the following vaccinations:
Cats – against panleukopenia.
All carnivores must be vaccinated against rabies. It is allowed to import animals vaccinated with a drug that gives protection against rabies for 3 years, upon confirmation by a veterinarian that the immunity maintenance period has not expired, or with laboratory confirmation that the intensity of immunity against rabies is at least 0.5 IU / ml. In other cases, laboratory confirmation of the strength of immunity against rabies is not required.
Form No. 15 includes a requirement:
2.2 During the quarantine the animals were subject to clinical examination. The animals were tested in the laboratory using the OIE recommended methods (please specify the name of the laboratory, date and testing method):
cats – for dermatophytosis.
Dermatophytosis is not an OIE listed disease and there is no OIE recommended method of testing for this disease.
Prospective exporters must seek advice from their registered veterinarian as to laboratory testing options available for dermatophytosis at a local accredited veterinary laboratory. The test chosen must be documented in an official laboratory report produced by the testing laboratory and include the date of testing and the method of testing.
