Travel With Your Pet to Malta

New EU rules on pet travel were introduced from 1st January 2012. These changes mean that the rules on rabies vaccination for entry into Malta will be in line with the rest of Europe.
A scientific risk assessment has been carried out to find out how the changes will affect the level of risk of rabies entering Malta and other rabies-free countries. The assessment found the risk to be very low.
Dogs, cats and pet ferrets entering Malta from an EU or listed third country from 1 January 2012 must:

  • be microchipped
  • be vaccinated against rabies
  • have waited 21 days after vaccination before entering
  • have an EU Pet Passport
