Pet Relocation to Zambia


Bringing pets into Zambia; If you are bringing a pet to Zambia you will require a Import Permit issued by the Zambian Authorities. In addition to the import certificate, you will need a valid rabies certificate showing that the pet was vaccinated at least 30 days, but not more than 6 months, prior to entering Zambia. Pets must also be accompanied by a export health certificate signed, stamped, and dated within 4 days by a licensed government veterinarian in country of origin. If your pet cannot travel simultaneously with a family member, copies of these documents must accompany the animal. There is no quarantine in Zambia. If possible, avoid transiting your pet through South Africa, as the regulations are cumbersome and may delay your pet’s arrival. These are guidelines only which are subject to change. Contact the Embassy of Zambia, or Consulate, for current requirements.
