  • Traveling from US to Turkey

    Hello,
    We will be traveling with our dog to Turkey this summer. We will be staying there 4-5 weeks and then we will return to the US. Our dog is half shepherd and half lab. We know that he will be traveling in the cargo and his vet needs to issue the certificate 10 days before the travel date. Do we have to do other paper work? Some people told me that they didn't have to do and some people say within the same 10 days the certificate needs to come to the USDA office for endorsement. This office never answers any phones (phone lines are always busy) and is far from where we live. What do we have to do? 10 days is a short time plus I'll be working until the time that we will travel. Please help. Thank you very much for your assistance in advance.

    Hello Efe - you can find requirements to enter Israel with your dog here with links to further instruction and forms if you need them here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/turkey.cfm. Note that there is a rabies titer test requirement to enter Israel from any country.

      Hello Administrator,
      We are not going to Israel. We are traveling to Turkey. Having my dog's health certificate issued by his vet 10 days before the travel date is enough? WE will return to Virginia by DC airports. I saw that some states require more than others. Thank you.

        Sorry for the confusion, Efe. Technically, Turkey requires a rabies titer test, but we understand that the requirement will be waived for home quarantine. Also, your dog must be microchipped before being vaccinated. http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/turkey.cfm.

          I have experience of traveling with my dog. I needed to visit one dog show. My dog Sally was a participant of those show. I bought cheap ticket for business class from LA to Dublin here https://www.iflyfirstclass.com/country/to-ireland I was impressed with my journey.
