  • Travelling to Turkey with a Beagle

    Hi there,
    We got our Beagle in China a couple of years ago and have just transported him back to the UK. He has his international chip, rabies shot and the blood test certificate. We are moving to Turkey next month and want to fly him over as soon as we can. I looked up taking him there and it seems we can't take him until he has been in the UK for 6 months before he travels. Is this really the case? Is there any way to speed up the process? And will we need to get another rabies jab and blood test before we take him to Turkey? Can we transport him without the use of a local agent? Any advice would be much appreciated.
    Thank you!

    If you have had a titer test done in an EU approved lab and the rabies vaccinations have not expired since the titer test was done, it is not understandable as to why your pet needs to live in the UK for 6 months. From what Turkey publishes, titer tests are required when entering from any country and, as Turkey has adopted EU rules, titer tests should be valid for the life of the animal as long as the rabies vaccinations do not expire.

    You do not need an agent to enter Turkey with your pet.
