Importing country requirements

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

On 22 May 2020, the Department was advised by the Turkish Government that the import of most animal species was suspended with immediate effect as part of Turkey's response to COVID-19. Subsequently, on 17 June 2020 as part of a lifting of restrictions, the Turkish Government provided advice that it would now permit the import of domesticated animals (domesticated dogs, cats, birds and ornamental fish) accompanied by passengers to Turkey.

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