Pet Passport Finland
This package contains information and detailed step by step instructions on importing your dog, cat or ferret to Finland. If your pet is not traveling to Finland, then you can select the country your pet is traveling to by clicking here to select a pet passport for another country.
Carefully following these instructions will make clearing customs easier and quicker. The instructions will also help to avoid having your pet denied entry, put into quarantine or returned to your country of origin.
Our information is constantly being updated to keep it current.
If your dog, cat or ferret is entering Finland from a rabies-free country or rabies-controlled-country, it will need a 15 digit ISO compliant pet microchip, then a rabies vaccination (in that order) at least 21 days prior to transport*. If your pet's microchip is not ISO compliant, you should carry a microchip scanner.
If your pet is entering Finland from a high-rabies country, it must also have a rabies blood titer test done no sooner than 30 days after vaccination and at least 90 days prior to transport. Select the option above for additional forms and instructions.
If you or your designated representative are traveling with or within 5 days of your dog, cat or ferret from a country outside of the EU, a licensed veterinarian must complete the non-commercial EU health certificate within 10 days of travel. If you or your designated representative are not traveling with or within 5 days of your pet, then a commercial EU health certificate will be required.
Your pet will also require a tapeworm treatment administered by a licensed veterinarian between one and five days of entry unless entering England from Finland, Ireland, Malta, Norway or another country belonging to the United Kingdom.
*After microchip implantation, re-vaccination and waiting period has passed, your pet can re-enter Finland without a wait time as long as booster vaccinations are given on time and your pet continues to meet the other entry requirements.

It was a little daunting at first, when I started to look into bringing my dog from Nepal to Finland. It was a lot of traveling, a lot of paperwork, a lot of questions and Pet Travel Store helped a lot. Having all those documents that I need, already prepared and in order really made things easier. When I landed in Helsinki, the customs officers seemed genuinely shocked that it was so easy and orderly. I would definitely recommend the service to others.
