Bringing Pets
 
 
 

General

Careful consideration should be made before bringing a pet to Sudan. Owners should keep in mind the extreme heat and possibilities of disease. Though death/illness of pets does not happen often, a few very unfortunate incidents have occurred. Many people choose to adopt animals found in Khartoum, such as dogs, cats, even rabbits. Veterinary care is available in Khartoum for treatment or inoculation.

You may bring animals into Sudan with the correct import permit. Advance notice will permit time to obtain the permit licence and to arrange for a Sudanese Government veterinarian to be on hand when the pet arrives to expedite its clearance into the country. You should hand-carry original documents relating to your pet with you as well as attach documents to the animal’s shipping container. Sudanese embassies and consulates can also issue pet import permits. Pets arriving without a permit are subject to quarantine and possible extermination.

Cats and dogs must be vaccinated for rabies more than 30, less than one year before travel. Your veterinarian should complete the Sudan veterinary certificate and an International Health Certificate within 10 days of travel.

Certification by the State USDA veterinarian is required if travelling from the United States.

No permit is required although you need to make prior arrangements for a veterinarian to meet the flight.

Pets may enter as excess baggage or cargo.

Regulations for the Movement of Pets into Sudan from the Europe & Third Countries

Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that the pet will be refused entry but that the relevant authority in consultation with an authorised vet can decide to return the pet home, or place the pet in quarantine at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for pet; or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be envisaged.

All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibian, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of Sudan.

The above rules only apply only when the pet is entering from an EU country or from one of the following Third Countries": Andorra, Antigua, Aruba, Ascension Island, Australia, Bahrain, Barbados, Barbuda, Bermuda, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Cayman Islands, Fiji, Falkland Islands, French Polynesia, Hong Kong, Iceland, Jamaica, Japan, Liechtenstein, Mayotte, Mauritius, Mexico, Monaco, Montserrat, Netherlands Antilles, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Norway, Russian Federation, Saint Helena, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Pierre et Miquelon, Saint Vincent & the Grenadines, San Marino, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE, USA, Vanuatu, Vatican City State, Wallis and Futuna.
