The process of transporting pets to Taiwan

The live animal shipping entry formalities in Taiwan vary due to the type of pet, the destination or the airline company.

Different type of pets and destinations imply different circumstances. Indeed, countries have importation conditions of their own for the vaccination, veterinary formalities and the travel mode of your pet.

Contact us to get more detailled information about the  veterinary protocol to enter your pet in the Taiwan territory.

Timeline for Entry

At Least 210 Days Prior to Arrival

  • Microchip
  • Each pet shall be identified by means of a microchip. No other form of identification is acceptable. The microchip used should comply with ISO Standard 11784 or Annex A to ISO standard 11785. Taiwan currently accepts AVID 9 and AVID 10 in addition to ISO. The microchip must be implanted before the rabies vaccine is administered.
  • During import inspection at the time of arrival in Taiwan, if the microchip number is not confirmed or the microchip number is not the same as that on the inspection certificate, the pet will be subject to a 180-day quarantine period.
  • Make sure all microchip numbers match on every document.

Arrival Procedure

Any pet arriving without an original veterinary certificate will be re-exported at the discretion of the Taiwanese government.

Inspection Process: When conducting quarantine inspection of the pet, the animal quarantine authority at the port of entry shall check the veterinary certificate and detain the pet at the designated post-entry quarantine premise for 21 days. During quarantine detention, the blood of the pet may be sampled and tested again for the rabies antibody. If the antibody is under 0.5IU/ml, the dog or cat shall be re-vaccinated with an inactivated rabies vaccine.

Pets arriving without the appropriate health certificate, without advance notice, without a readable microchip ID, or without the proper blood test and 180 day waiting period will be subject to quarantine upon arrival in Taiwan.
