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:
