III. Travelling with dogs, cats and ferrets to the Czech Republic from the EU Member States

FROM 29 DECEMBER 2014

For travelling with dogs, cats and ferrets to the Czech Republic from the EU Member States the following requirements must be met:

1. Identification of animals

Dogs, cats and ferrets must be identified by implanting of a transponder (microchip). The identification shall be performed by the private veterinarian. Only transponders (microchips) complying with the ISO standards for microchips and reading devices – ISO 11784 and ISO 11785 can be used for the identification. Where the transponder does not comply with these requirements, the owner or the authorised person must provide the means necessary for reading that transponder at any check.

The identification of animals using tattoos is recognised only when the tattoo is clearly readable and was demonstrably done before 3rd July 2011.

Animals must be identified prior to the anti-rabies vaccination and issuance of the passport.


2. Pet passport

Dogs, cats and ferrets must be accompanied by the pet passport (hereinafter referred to as the "passport"). The passport is a unified document which is valid in all Member States of the European Union. Each passport bears a code of the country and a serial number.

NOTICE
Dogs, cats and ferrets originating from Croatia may by 30 June 2016 travel with the passport complying with Decision No 2003/803/EC bearing on the front cover the Croatian national emblem and words “Republika Hrvatska”. The passport is recognised when it was issued to the owner by the official veterinarian in Croatia by 30 June 2014 at the latest.


3. Anti-rabies vaccination

Dogs, cats and ferrets over twelve weeks of age must receive anti-rabies vaccination. The anti-rabies vaccination must be performed using an inactivated vaccine of at least one international antigenic unit per dose (WHO standard) or a recombinant vaccine. The vaccine administered in a Member State must have marketing authorisation.

For the purposes of travelling with pets, an anti-rabies vaccination shall be considered as valid:

a. 21 days from the date of completion of the vaccination protocol required by the manufacturer for the primary vaccination,
or
b. from the date of re-vaccination where the vaccine is administered within the period of validity indicated by the manufacturer of a previous vaccination. However, such re-vaccination shall be considered as a primary vaccination in the absence of the animal health certificate attesting the previous vaccination.

4.1. Entry of young dogs, cats and ferrets under 12 weeks of age

a. each animal must be identified using a transponder (microchip) complying with the ISO standards for microchips and reading devices – ISO 11784 and ISO 11785. The identification using tattoos is recognised only when the tattoo is clearly readable and was demonstrably done before 3rd July 2011;

- the owner or the authorised person travels with more than five animals which are not registered either to participate in competitions, exhibitions or sporting events or in training for such events;
- the pet animal is at the non-commercial movement not accompanied by the owner or the authorised person (i.e. the animal travels “alone”).
