Pet Transportation: Poland
As relocation experts, at Move One we know how important it is to familiarize yourself with your potential new home before making the big move.
Move One is therefore pleased to present its country profiles, which take a closer look at Relocation, Immigration, Moving and Pet Transportation issues in each of its locations.
Before deciding to import your pet or buy one in Poland there are several thing you may want to consider.
To import your pet into Poland …
- You will need an International Health Certificate for your pet, issued no more than seven days prior to arrival (on an EU compliant form).
- Your pet will need to be microchiped or tattooed. Bear in mind that the tattoo will only be valid as an identification method until July 3 2011.
- A record of anti-rabies vaccinations issued at least 30 days prior to arrival, but not more than nine months is required.
- Owner will need to provide a copy of their own passport and a copy of their ticket as a proof that they are in Poland (the pet should arrive after the owner).
- Declaration of the pet’s value (draft) will be send for client’s signature.
Please remember that all original documentation listed above must travel with the pets. It is prohibited to import any pet into Poland that is a protected species.
Veterinary care is available throughout Poland and you will have no trouble finding a reliable veterinary for your furry friend.
There are also a number of animal clinics across the country. These offer professional medical help, pet food and medicine, or even toys for your animal. Here are some of the cities that have such facilities:
Biala Podlaska, Gdansk, Gdynia, Katowice, Koszalin, Krakow, Lodz, Lublin, Plock, Poznan, Szczecin, Torun, Warszawa, Wroclaw.
However, Poland lacks well reputed kennels or pet hotels. As Pet Transportation specialists Move One has a list of trusted institutions, so if you require such services please contact us and we will be happy to organize the boarding. Alternatively, you may want to ask friends or family to take care of your furry friend while you are away.
Poland has recently seen the establishment of animal cemeteries where owners now have a place to bury their pets and are able to visit them. Prices for these vary from 140 to 300 PLN (approx. $50 – $100). Here are three such cemeteries:
