Pets to Bring into Moldova

There are no regulations restricting importation of cats and dogs. Before arrival, pet owners should ensure that their pets are properly immunised and that they have immunisation records (primarily rabies vaccine within one year prior to arrival in Moldova) and health certificate records, certified by a public health authority in the sending country. The health certificate should have been issued within one week prior to the animal’s departure (though this is not strictly enforced.) Bring or ship any special needs such as worm medicine or particular food. Properly documented animals are cleared quickly through customs. Be sure all pet records are completely up-to-date before arrival. Do not send the pet as unaccompanied baggage, as local airlines may refuse to accept it. There is a small fee at the airport ($2-3 per pet) for veterinary services.

Since local veterinarians do not always have vaccines, make sure your pet has all needed shots before you come. If you anticipate a need for particular medicines, ship a supply or make arrangements with a veterinarian to send additional supplies. Many local veterinarians are generally very inexpensive and pleasant , but few speak English.

Some pet owners have made arrangements with local veterinarians to make home visits. However, immunisation for distemper and rabies differ from those used in the West. Chisinau has a fair number of homeless cats and dogs that live on the streets. Another danger to domestic animals may be from rodent-control poison, which can be set out without notice around garbage areas, resulting in reports of accidental poisoning, although no cases have been reported in the past year.
