Pet Relocation to Benin


Pet Relocation

When relocating pets to Benin they will be required to be micro-chipped first then vaccinated against rabies ( and various other diseases ) at least 30 days but not more than 6 months prior to pet relocation to Benin.
All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but there are other requirements as to a limit on the number of animals and a veterinary health certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.
These are pet relocation guidelines only which are subject to change. Contact the Embassy of Benin or Consulate for current requirements about bringing pets into their country.
