Moving Pets to Ireland

Find out how to prepare your pets for life in Ireland...

The import of pets into Ireland is strictly controlled to prevent the spread of diseases such as rabies.

The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food regulates the movement of live animals to and from Ireland.

  • Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
    : Head Office, Agriculture House, Kildare Street, Dublin 2
    Tel: 1890 504 604 / +353 1 607 2827 (from abroad)

All pets entering Ireland must be accompanied by an owner and be over three months of age.

Pet Passport Scheme

Ireland uses the EU harmonised "Passport for Pets" scheme which enables domestic animals (cats, dogs and ferrets) to travel between EU member states and some qualifying countries. For animals other than cats, dogs and ferrets travelling to Ireland, contact the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.
