Pet Relocation to Gambia


Pet Relocation; All pets require a import permit from the principal veterinary officer but no quarantine is imposed. Since rabies is hyper endemic in the Gambia, pets must be micro-chipped first then vaccinated against rabies at least 30 days, but not more than 6 months, prior to entering the country. As rabies is hyper endemic in the Gambia we advise pets are given a blood-test to make sure that the rabies vaccination had taken. Pets must also be accompanied by a export health certificate signed, stamped and dated by a licensed government veterinarian in country of origin within 48 hours of export. Rabies vaccinations should be renewed annually. These are guidelines only which are subject to change. Contact the Gambian Authorities (Or the Embassy of Gabon) for current requirements about bringing pets into their country.
