How to Travel With Pet(s) in Morocco

Pets have become an important part of human life, particularly cats, dogs, and parrots. Most of the people want to keep their pets with them while traveling but there is no guarantee that traveling to every other country allow the pets to you because of authoritative regulations.

If we talk about Morocco traveling with pets, let me tell you that dogs are not so much popular in Morocco. There are many people who want to keep their selected pets at their homes and yes, many do. Expats in Morocco, enjoy having pets that are now part of their families and living with them for many years. There are a large number of stray cats on the streets of Morocco, as well as many dogs too. Very few Moroccans have dogs as pets, and many find them to be filthy animals.

Pet’s vaccination & process for approving pet travel:

As Morocco is one of the Islamic countries and touching a dog eventually removes the cleanliness and after that, they are unable to pray unless they do wadhu (washing hands, face, and foot, also called waz’u) again.

Pet’s vaccination

Foreigners may carry pets along with them to Morocco, and the procedure for doing so is comparatively easy. Your pet must receive a rabies vaccination more than 30 days before traveling to Morocco.

One more necessary thing is that you must get a health certificate of your pet’s health, current shots and note that it is parasite free from a qualified veterinarian. That particular certificate must be sent to the agriculture department in other countries with a verified stamp of the health department. Now it should be delivered to the Moroccan Consulate in the home of the country for verification and acceptance. From the Moroccan consulate where only healthy pets allowed to travel to the destination. It is necessary that owners of the pets should confirm the identity of their pets. Once land in Morocco, foreigners do not need to obtain any additional licenses for pets. For more information about pet travel, go to a pet travel-immigration page of the site.
