Pets to Bring into Estonia

Pets should have a clearly readable tattoo or an electronic identification system (transponder). The transponder should comply with ISO Standard 11784 or 11785. This is a 15 digit ISO compliant microchip that operates at 134.2 kHz. If your pet does not have the ISO microchip then the owner must provide their own scanner.

All pets must be accompanied by a pet passport or certificate by a veterinarian authorized by the competent authority certifying valid anti-rabies vaccination, or revaccination if applicable, in accordance with the recommendations of the manufacturing laboratory, carried out on the animal in question with an inactivated vaccine of at least one antigenic unit per dose (WHO standard).

There is no quarantine restriction for household pets brought to Estonia. Owners travelling with pet's other than dogs, cats and ferrets, are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.

Unvaccinated pets (dogs and cats only) under three months old may enter an EU country, but there are additional regulations that must be met. Certain aggressive breeds of dogs are prohibited from entry.

Competent veterinarians, many of whom speak English, practice in Tallinn. Most veterinarians will obtain pet vaccines and medicines in Finland or elsewhere in Europe. Veterinarians sometimes make house calls to vaccinate and care for sick pets. Veterinarians’ fees in Estonia are low by Western standards. Although pet medical care is inexpensive, pet food is more expensive compared to Western prices.
