Pet Passport Ukraine
This package contains information and detailed step by step instructions on transporting your dog or cat to Ukraine. If your pet is not traveling to Ukraine, then you can select the country your pet is traveling to by clicking here to select a pet passport for another country. If your dog or cat is transiting Ukraine, see below.
Carefully following these instructions will make entering Ukraine with your pet 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.
Ukraine will require proof that your dog or cat has been vaccinated against rabies no sooner than 30 days and no later than 12 months before arrival. Vaccinations against other diseases are also required. Your pet will also need a veterinary health certificate issued by a licensed veterinarian.
With the package, you get detailed instructions and FREE unlimited email support both for you and your veterinarian, should either of you have any questions.

Note that, if your pet is flying in the cargo hold and the itinerary calls for a stop in Ukraine, and it is flying in and out of the country on the same airline, and your layover is reasonable (below 3 hours or so), then your pet will transit the country and these instructions and forms will not be required. If your layover is more than 3-4 hours, then you will need to contact your airline to see if you will be required to claim and recheck your pet. If this is the case, then these instructions and forms will help you with customs clearance in Ukraine.
It is our objective to prepare the traveling pet owner for all entry requirements that may arise as a result of traveling by air, sea or land. Enforcement may not be consistent in every country or on every airline and having proper documentation will better ensure that no problems will arise during your travels.
If you purchase our instructions and forms prior to 30-45 days before you travel, please check back with us to make sure there have been no changes in the rules or forms required to take your pet to Ukraine. All updated instructions and forms are provided by email free of charge.

The pet passport packet is good because it gave me a solid idea about which documents and processes I needed to follow to take my cat from Ukraine into the UK. However, it is impossible to actually have a Ukrainian vet complete the paperwork in the packet (so impossible to use the packet as a "pet passport") because none of the multiple vets I visited in Ukraine were willing to complete paperwork in English; they insisted on recording all information in their own documentation templates, which are in Russian. They were especially reluctant about the pet passport packet because some of the pages, such as the one that includes space for vaccination information, do not include a space for the pet's microchip number on every page, and for every vac record, so, as one Ukrainian vet pointed out, "this could be for any cat at all." But as I mentioned, the packet was very useful to me, and I only had to figure out how to obtain the information in document form that Ukrainian vets were willing to complete. It turned out that I needed only to have the Ukrainian vets do their thing in Russia, then take all the Russian documents to the airport vet within ten days of my flight, get some last-minute worming, and that final vet would put all the info into a document in English.
In short, purchase of the pet passport packet provided valuable guidance for me, and the email response to questions about the procedure from Pet Travel Store was prompt and very, very helpful. I would recommend purchase of this packet to anyone who wants a guide as to what processes they need to take their pet from Ukraine to UK, just be aware that you won't be able to actually use the packet as a pet passport.
