Oslo - Pets quarantine

There is no rabies in Norway, and if you take your pet to Norway, you need to have it vaccinated against rabies followed by an antibody control. Dogs must be micro chipped, vaccinated against leptospirosis and canine distemper and be dewormed against tapeworm. Cats must also be fitted with a microchip for identification and dewormed. An import permit and recent veterinary certificate (Health and Vaccination Certificate) must accompany all animals upon arrival at the border. Applications should be made to the following address:

They will send you an information booklet together with the relevant forms and health certificate to take to your vet.
If you bring in a pet from a rabies infected country, you may need to have you pet in a quarantine when it arrives in Norway (four to six months). There is only one approved quarantine station for cats and dogs, which is about 70 km outside of  Oslo. You must book a place 30 days or more before importing the animals. To book, contact the District Veterinary at:
