  • Taking 2 dogs from California to Hungary

    I am planning to take 2 chihuahuas from California to Hungary for 3-4 months. I have read on some sites that I need to get them microchipped and then vaccinated for rabies (even if the are current - this has to be done after microchip placement) and then the blood has to be re tested a month later to make sure that it has the required amount of protection against rabies - and all of this has to be done 6 months prior. Is that accurate?? On some other sites, it seems that the vaccination only has to be done at least 21 days prior.

    This is the site that I saw the 6 month rule:

    Thank you for your help!

    The rules are: To take your pet into Hungary from the United States it must first be micro chipped with the ISO 15 digit microchip and then vaccinated or re-vaccinated for rabies. The vaccination must be done 30 days prior to entry in Hungary although they will usually allow 21 days. About 2 weeks before travel your veterinarian will complete the EU form 998 for Hungary. No blood titer test is required. The complete pet passport package is available here:

      That information related to pets entering the UK and not Hungary.

        Wow. Thank you for the quick reply! I also saw this site, which also stated the 6 months:

        Does the 6 months apply to all EU Pet Travel Scheme countries? Or is 21 days sufficient for Hungary? It's hard to tell which is the most current and accurate information. Thank you!!

          The link you show above is for the United Kingdom. Up until January 1, 2012 the UK does require a blood titer test. Hungary has never required a blood titer test for pets coming from the United States.
