  • JFK to Vienna to Israel

    I'm considering doing a three and a half hour stopover in Vienna. How can I find out if I'll be allowed to take our Toy Poodle (service dog, on my lap) outside the airport to do his business?
    Thanks for any input.

    Freedam - if you take your service dog outside, you will need to clear customs and enter Austria. As you are originating in the US, this could mean as little as a current rabies vaccination administered after a microchip is implanted and no sooner than 21 days before travel as well as a non-commercial EU health certificate endorsed by the USDA. However, in the interests of not missing your next flight, it may be better to carry pet pads with you and find a bathroom that is not crowded in the secure area of the airport. Hopefully, EU airports will start to put in pet relief stations behind security posts in the near future like the US has done.
