Importing country requirements

It is the exporter's responsibility to ensure that the animal meets the importing country requirements.

The Swiss Confederation (Switzerland) is not a member country of the European Union (EU) but has harmonised the import conditions for cats with EU. Please refer to the Micor entry – EU – Cats.

Information about the process required to import animals into Switzerland from Australia can be found on the Swiss Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO) website.

Where an importing country issues an import permit, the exporter must ensure the animal meets any requirements in the permit.

Health requirements

As required by the importing country.

Other requirements

Transport requirements

The importing country may have specific transport requirements and you should check this.

Return to Australia

If your animal is returning to Australia, you should make yourself familiar with the Department's requirements for importing live animals into Australia. This is important as your animal may have been exposed to diseases that do not occur in Australia.
