Pet Passport France
This package contains information and detailed step by step instructions on importing your dog, cat or ferret to France. If your pet is not traveling to France, 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 France 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 France 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 health certificate will be required.
*After microchip implantation, re-vaccination and waiting period has passed, your pet can re-enter France without a wait time as long as booster vaccinations are given on time and your pet continues to meet the other entry requirements.

customer service was very helpful. everything is great so far. little hard to read but otherwise good.
This is a comprehensive and up to date package, that explains in precise detail how to fill out the extensive and often confusing documents required to travel with a pet. I travel every year to France with my dog, and I always order this indispensable kit, just in case laws and procedures have changed, which they frequently do. It is money well-spent and relieves the traveler of a great deal of anxiety. As other reviewers have noted, any follow up questions one has are promptly and courteously answered. Excellent service.
Moving across the Atlantic was complicated enough, but having to rellocate with a dog was a feat not for the faint hearted. The documents provided by the Pet Travel Store were on point, and I emailed them a few times with questions and I received quick helpful answers. If you are relocating with your pup/animal I highly recommend buying the necessary documentes via this company.
This store and its products are indispensable. Customer service is superb.
All those who travel with their pets owe Jerry and Gillian a debt of gratitude.
My cat's passport looks really nice and all the information about him are now centered in one document . It's very convenient …and very cute too !
Gillian was super helpful and very effective . Excellent communication .
Just the same as the papers for Germany, only in French. The EU has made their new forms difficult to fill out. My vet was not amused and has never come across anything like this before. the previous forms were much better. I think the person who set up these forms should try to fill one out, especially the tiny spot for the 15 digit micro chip. Thank you Jerry for sending me an example of one filled out. We found that to be most helpful.
Many years ago when I started travelling to Europe with my small dog, I had to compile all the necessary information from a variety of sources and I was not at all sure that I was getting the most up to date and complete information. Your service is marvelous! One stop shopping--even for the chip and scanner.
