Note from dog

How do you get a Pet Passport?

Pet Passports are issued by authorized EU vets only; you cannot get them in non-EU countries. The passport is valid for life, but becomes invalid if the entries are made by a vet who is not authorized by the EU.

You still might have to deal with quarantine, so be sure to check regulations before you travel.
