To move with your dog, cat or ferret there are general regulations for all member countries but, in the case of birds and other species, each region has its own conditions
If you are thinking of visiting a city in the European Union and you want to do it with your pet, you should know what the requirements are for traveling with animals. These have specific regulations for moving around the member countries. They have stopped being treated as things to be one of the family and from now on, even a visitation regime will be set in case of divorce.
From the Government Administration they clarify that it is considered displacement of a companion animal (dog, cat, ferret or bird) whenever these are given
maximum number of animals that can be moved together with one person is five, except if the reason for the displacement is due to competition, exhibition or sporting activity, which in this case, may be more, but if they are older than six months.
-The reason for the displacement
it cannot be for commercial reasons nor can there be a transfer of ownership.
They must travel accompanied by their owner or the person responsible during the journey. The movement of animals is allowed to be carried out in a means of transport separate from that of the owner if it occurs within a period not exceeding five days with respect to the movement of the owner / person in charge.
In the case of moving from Spain to a country of the European Union, the
requirements for your dog, cat or ferret to travel are: be identified with a
microchip, or tattoo (if this was done before 07/03/2011) and as long as it is still legible; to be
vaccinated against rabies with a valid vaccine at the time of the trip; and, finally, have a
european passport for the movement of pets. If the trip is to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Malta, Finland or Norway, in addition, you will have to treat your dog against E. multiocularis between 24 and 120 hours before arriving in the country.
If it is a bird, the conditions of the limit in the number of animals and the route are the same. Likewise, if these circumstances are not met, it is considered a commercial movement. Regarding the requirements
for traveling with birds, the rules between Member States are not harmonized at EU level. Each country is free to establish its rules to allow the entry of this type of animal. From the following url you can check the regulations of each country:
The Government Administration recommends that in any case, the trip with pets be planned with enough time to comply with all health requirements.
