There will be no quarantine imposed on your pet when entering Poland as long as the following requirements are met.Unless otherwise stated, the regulations below apply to domestic dogs, cats and ferrets including service and emotional supportdogs and cats. Owners of other pets should refer to item 11.

Pet Microchip

The first step to prepare your dog, cat or ferret to enter Polandis to have your pet microchipped with an ISO 11784/11785 compliant 15 digit pet microchip.

If your pet currently has a microchip that is not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, then you have 3 choices:

You can contact the officials at the Border Inspection Post where you will enter the EU and inquireas to whether they have scanners that can read your pet's chip.If your pet's current microchip can still be read, your veterinariancan implant compliant chip.The number and implant dates of both microchipsmust be documented on the EU Health Certificate (see step #5).

A tattoo is an acceptable form of identification as long as it was given prior to July 3, 2011, is clearly visible and your pet was vaccinated for rabies after the tattoo was applied.



Rabies Vaccination

All dogs, cats and ferrets must have proof of a current rabies vaccination administered after a microchip was implanted to enter Poland.

The first rabies vaccination after the microchip is implanted is called the primary vaccination and it should be a one year vaccine unless manufacturer specifications permit its use as a primary vaccination. If your pet's previous rabies vaccination had expired before being revaccinated, the next vaccination becomes the primary vaccination.

All vaccinations that are administered after the primary vaccination are called booster vaccinations.

If your pet is entering Poland from a rabies-free (click here) or rabies-controlled country (click here), the primary rabies vaccination must be administered no sooner than 21 days before entering Poland.

There is no waiting period after booster vaccinations as long as:

the previous vaccination was administered after a microchip was implanted ANDthe booster vaccination was administered before the previous vaccination had expired.

Poland does honor the 3 year rabies vaccination for dogs, cats and ferrets; however, it should only be administered as a booster, not as a primary vaccination. You can speak to your veterinarian about this.

Once your pet has entered Poland, a 21 day waiting period is not required for subsequent visits, provided rabies boosters are kept up to date, and the other entry requirements are met.

If your pet is entering Poland from a high-rabies country, it must wait for a minimum of 30 days after the primary or booster vaccination before receiving a rabies titer test (see step #3).


Rabies Titer Test

If your pet is entering Poland from a high-rabies country (click here), your pet must be microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies (in that order). After waiting 30 days, a rabies titer test (FAVN) must be administered. (Have your veterinarian scan your pet's microchip prior to the titer test.)

Samples must be processed at approved laboratories. Assuming test results are within acceptable limits, your pet can enter Poland no sooner than 3 calendar months after the date the blood was drawn and avoid quarantine. This step is not required unless entering Poland from a high-rabies country.
