Traveling with pets outside of Catalonia

To leave Catalonia with your pet, it will be necessary to bring the vaccination card with the rabies vaccine and its up-to-date stamped reminders. If the reminders are not made before the previous vaccination expires, you must wait 21 days after the vaccination to travel.

Traveling with pets outside of Spain

European Passport

It will be necessary in animals that are going to travel outside the country. It must be issued and registered by a veterinarian and be associated with a registered chip. In it will be reflected:

  • The annual vaccinations (polyvalent) and their reminders
  • The rabies vaccine and its reminders (we remember that it is important that the reminder is placed before the previous one expires or you will have to wait 21 days after the vaccine to leave the country)
  • Deworming (some European countries require a prior deworming between 1 and 5 days before the trip)
  • Pre-trip health assessments

Traveling with pets outside of Europe

Health certificate for travel

Depending on the country you are traveling to, a health certificate issued by a veterinarian will be required along with your passport.

CEXGAN Certificates

Other countries have their own certificates that must also go through a veterinarian and then be verified by an official entity.

It is important to manage the certificates WITH ENOUGH TIME as they can involve bureaucratic processes and laboratory tests that can take between 1 and 2 weeks each one.

To see what certificates, health evaluations and other procedures are necessary, you can consult the CEXGAN page.

The CEXGAN certificate must be requested by an authorized veterinarian (TomVets has authorized veterinarians) and it must be the same veterinarian who has carried out the necessary checks, treatments and health evaluations. Once the request is made, the process no longer depends solely on the veterinarian, but will be evaluated by CEXGAN staff and it is very common for the request to be returned more than once to make changes. That is why we warn you that it is a complicated and expensive process.

Documents and procedures commonly necessary in CEXGAN Certificates:

  • Health certificate between 1 and 10 days before the trip
  • Rabies vaccine (if it is 1st dose, at least 21 days before the trip)
  • Deworming between 1 and 21 days before the trip
  • Rabies serological test in official laboratory
  • Health status check by CEXGAN official veterinarian at the border inspection post

    Such a good service, vet arrived and assessed our cat quickly, took the hassle and stress of a vet visit away as we have a new rescue cat who gets very nervous easily. Would definitely recommend as you don’t even have to leave your home … More and you know you’re getting great care for your pet!

    A very good option for those who either don't have a good vet next to them or don't want to put their pet under unnecessary stress (especially cats) having to go to the clinic. Very professional and good understandable explanations. … More

    Tommaso arrived at a delicate time for us, when it was time to say goodbye to our beloved 20 year old cat. We contacted him and scheduled the visit for the next day. He visited us at home and made sure our cat passed peacefully. He also … More put us in contact with a local crematorium and delivered his remains there.
    Thank you again!

  • Avatar Ellen Gould Ventura ★★★★★ a year ago
    Tommaso Piermarini of TomVets has a wonderful way with all animals looking out for their best interests. A number of years ago he first treated my cats and gave great recommendations for the hospitals and onsite veterinary clinics he collaborates … More with in terms of neutering and surgeries required for accidents and unusual health issues. He just did the chip and 2nd vaccine of my newly adopted puppy today. We’re very contented with his services. Above all, Tommaso was kind, professional, highly informed and communicative. He returns for the 3rd puppy vaccine in 3 weeks time. We are very grateful. Bravo Tommaso!

    Outstanding service. Timely and professional. Highly recommended for anyone who cares about their "kids". The home service makes it so much less stressfull for both our cats as well as us.
  • Avatar lisa gambino ★★★★★ a year ago
    My bunny gets so stressed when I take him to the vet, so last week I was looking online for a vet who would do home visits. My bunny had a really bad grooming issue, which needed to be fixed quickly. So I found TomVets and Dr. Tom came … More over that very same day! He sent me regular Whatsapp updates about time of arrival for example and he was super friendly and professional. My bunny looked amazing afterwards, without the stress of a trip to the vets! I would definitely recommend TomVets and I will be using him again in the future.
