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.
If you live in a country outside the European Union and wish to travel to another country with your pet, the documentation necessary for the relocation is often collectively referred to as a Pet Passport. You still might have to deal with quarantine, so be sure to check regulations before you travel.
