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

Health requirements

As importing country requirements may change without advice to the Department you should check the import permit and/or the country website carefully at the time of preparation for export. Certifying officers must review the import permit(s), any conditions provided by the exporter and the country website to ensure that the issued document(s) are consistent with the permit(s).

The following conditions were provided in a permit issued by the Directorate of Veterinary Services in Tanzania in April 2019.

The animal must be accompanied by:

  • This permit
  • A veterinary health certificate issued within 72 hours prior embarkation by State Veterinarian of the exporting country to the effect that the said animals are health and fit for transportation.
  • Has been treated for external and internal parasites.
  • Has been vaccinated against: Rabies, Feline calici infection and Feline panleucopaenia.

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.
