Bringing Pets to Dubai

Pets are allowed into the UAE. However, bear in mind that you will likely live in an apartment, so a large dog may not be comfortable. In addition, summer temperatures are often too high for pets to spend much time outdoors.

If you are on a Term Contract, you might not be able to bring pets with you as you will be housed in furnished accommodation which may not allow pets.

Pets must be shipped to the UAE as cargo and this can be quite expensive. You will have to contact one of the airlines to arrange shipment or you may wish to use a company specialising in shipping pets. See the website of The Independent Pet and Animal Transportation Association International, Inc. for a list of pet shippers worldwide, The airline or shipping company will advise you of the flight details.

The person in whose name the pets are shipped will have to go to the cargo section of the airport to collect the pets. An import permit is required; the import permit can be processed by Human Resources after we receive copies of the Good Health Certificate and the Vaccination Certificate. In order to collect your pet, you will need the original import permit, the original Good Health Certificates, the original Vaccination Certificate, and a photocopy of your passport.

The following documents are required if you are bringing your pets to the UAE:

    • Good Health Certificate
    • Vaccination Certificate

All pets must be microchipped and the microcrip number must appear on all their documentation.

A copy of the above certificates should be faxed to the Human Resources Department approximately three weeks prior to your pet’s arrival in the UAE. Note that the certificates are only valid for one month from the date of issue.
