European Pet Passport

In Cyprus, pets are defined as animals kept for company and should not be intended for commercial purposes. Cypriot and EU law include cats, dogs and ferrets as companion pets.

Cats, dogs and ferrets meeting all requirements can travel between EU member states if accompanied by an EU Pet Passport (EUPP).

The EU Pet Passport has been designed to last the lifetime of the animal. It contains details of the pet owner and the animal, including its microchip or identification details and vaccination records. The Pet Passport is issued and kept up to date by your vet.

Note: The new EU system applies to cats, dogs and ferrets; as concerns other pets, there is not yet agreed-on legislation at EU level, so national legislation applies.
