    Laws about bringing pets into Russia?

    Hi,

    I wasn't able to find some solid info on what the regulations are for bringing pets into Russia from other countries. For the sake of discussion, let's just say a small dog. Does anyone know how long the quarantine period is, what certificates are required, how expensive it is, etc? (Is it even safe for a small dog in some parts of Russia?)

    Sorry if this has already come up in the forum. If it has, I couldn't find it.

    You just have to have a clean bill of health certificate from the vet that is less than 30 days old. Also i think the quarantine isnt too long, less than a month. 2 weeks probly.

    Why wouldn't it be safe for a small dog? Russians don't eat dogs. Nor do other dogs eat dogs in russia for the most part. Just dont let it get eaten by a world if your in the woods and you'll be fine.

    Thanks for the imput!

    2 weeks? Do you know the specific place the animal would be held? And do you know how expensive it would be? Who would I talk to about something like that? Is there a website online that talks about it at all? Is this for all parts of Russia, or are there some places you can fly into that don't require quarantine?

    Russia's really cold...Could it be too cold for some dogs? (Like a mexican hairless...) Do they allow people to take small pets with them on the trains, metros, trams, etc? (Forgive my small-city-girl mind if these questions seems completely absured, 'kay?)

    Why don't you just get a dog when you get to Russia. I'm sure you will find a nice selection there.

    Why don't you call the russian embassy? Im sure they can answer all of your questions. And russia isnt any colder than sweden or denmark or nornthern japan for that matter. Infact parts of russia stretch as far south as italy does. Russia isnt THAT cold. Im sure there are lots of hairless animals all over the world, regardless of climate.

    my friends brought a small dog from asian country recently and there were no vet certificates required let alone quarantine , but i'm almost sure things can be different when you are a foreigner and dont speak russian

    so, as dogboy said, better call the embassy

    good luck

    p.s.
    just found http://www.gsdog.ru/forum/arch6.html (forum in russian, there they say that the dog needs vaccination against rabies done not less than 1 month and not more than 1 year before)

    Russian embassy sounds like the default to call here. Hopefully, one wouldn't run into the web of red tape like they would with visas. Even the thought of putting my dog in a quaratine for longer than a day makes me nervous.

    The mexican hairless thing was a joke...haha?

    Thanks for the suggestion. Personally, I'd really need more stable means of communicating between me and the breeder. Not only that, but I have a feeling finding a responsible breeder of this type of dog, one who is willing to spend the money to get the right tests done when they're puppies, won't be easy to find. (I'd rather travel with an adult dog who can behave and not raise a puppy in another country if I can help it. If I were to find an adult dog of this breed, I'm sure they'd understand Russian commands and gestures, and I wouldn't want to add the stress of trying to adapt to a dog like that.) I may just be fussy; others might really like the idea of getting a pet in Russia.

    I'm presuming your friends were Russian then. No quaratine or vet certificates required? When the came back to Russia, what part did they come back to? Maybe the bigger cities might require more work than others?

    My other questions about whether they allow pets on trains, metros, trams, etc. hasn't been answered...

    Edit:

    So not allow a clean bill of health, but a rabies vaccination *and* quarantine? Is there any way to avoid quarantine all together?

    yes, my friends are russian, they live in st petersburg (not a smaller city )
    but i've just edited my above message

    and yes, pets are allowed in transport, in trains you have to buy a ticket for a big dog (more than 15 kg), but in metro or trams a special bag will be enough

    I will copy and paste this part:


    Алена Ввоз овчарки в Россию - какие требования? Подскажите, пожалуйста, какие документы необходимы для ввоза немецкой овчарки в Москву? Есть ли какая-либо специфика? Мне известны общие требования: международный сертификат здоровья, паспорт с прививками, и все. Спасибо за помощь
    ирина :: от куда вы везёте собаку?вы должны сходить в ветеринарный департамент,и там всё узнать,т.к. в каждой стране разные договоры с Россией.Нам достаточно только ветеренарного выездного сертефиката заполненого на русском языке./в Россию достаточно только вакцины от бешенства/

    Алена :: Спасибо большое. Везем овчарку (7 лет) из Канады. Не подскажите ли, сколько дней должно пройти после прививки перед въездом. Заранее благодарим.

    ирина Re: Алена :: на день поездки вакцина должна быть сделана не менее чем за месяц и не более года.
    И в любом случае вы должны будете пойти в ветеринарный департамент по месту жительства/прописки/,и там узнать условия выдачи выездного сертефиката,если вам выдадут на англ.,то скорее всего вам придётся делать перевод на русский,нотариально заверенный,а может и нет,как я сказала у нас сразу выдают на русском,лучше если вы пойдёте и узнаете или позвоните им.А как я сказала,для вьезда в Россию достаточно вакцины от бешенства

    Аттика :: Уважаемая, Алёна.
    Помимо док-тов я бы посоветовала обратиться к авиаперевозчику.
    Во-первых, Вам сразу скажут перевозят ли они вообще животных или нет (некоторые авиакомпаниии вообще не разрешают перевозку животных даже в багажном, кроме поводырей).
    Во вторых Вас проконсультируют по поводу клетки (возможна ли её аренда, или вам придётся её покупать для поездки, а так же требуемые габариты.
    если провоз Вам разрешат, то не позднее чем за неделю в авиакомпанию необходимо послать уведомление, о том, что Вы летите с собакой (на борту может находиться не более 2 животных), так что если на этом рейсе летит 2 кошки, то Вам откажут.
    В- третьих Вам именно там подскажут необходимый перечень док-тов и срокитоформления ветеринарных сертификатов.
    А так же советую сделать перед поездкой сердечный и успокаивающий укол, т.к. для собаки-перелёт-это стресс. проконсультируйтесь с Вашим ветеринаром.


    Алена :: Спасибо большое всем.

    Алена :: Извините, хочу все-таки уточнить про прививку. Сколько, по Российским нормам, должно пройти времени после прививки от бешенства для ввоза собаки.
    Спасибо еще раз

    ирина Re: Алена :: Уважаемая Алёна.
    сроки остаются в силе,что я вам перечислила выше,а если сомневаетесь,то можете проконсультироваться,в ветеренарном департаменте,у своего же ветеринара или в правилах ввоза животных в Россию.

    so, there's nothing about quarantine there

    rabies vaccination and also vet passport is mentioned

    p.s.

    so you have a corgie? nice, i also had one

    Thanks, cheshire, that makes me feel a lot better about bringing a pet into Russia. What is that a copy of exactly? (I'm only a first year student of Russian. This will be my second year, but my Russian isn't good enough to read that yet. However, I'll print that out and stick it in my Russian folder for the time being.) Vet passport? I don't like the sound of that. (Please, ppplleeeaaassseeee tell me nothing like getting a visa!!) Hopefully, it only means having the papers stating that my dog is healthy, right? Are St. Petersburg's laws concerning foreign pets better than Moscow's or are they pretty much the same?

    Special bag? To carry the dog in? Like a crate?

    Edit: Don't have any dogs yet, but I'm planning on getting a corgi (pembroke not cardigan).

    You're welcome, resilient

    What is that a copy of exactly?
    well, actually this is not a serious document to print, but it's the most serious thing i found, actually it's a forum where specialists (i believe) answer questions

    Vet passport? I don't like the sound of that.
    My doggy's passport is a small paper where her name, age, breed, parents, club etc. are written, there are also some stickers about vaccination or smth like that, i got this in the club when i bought her so i think you'll get smth like that too

    Are St. Petersburg's laws concerning foreign pets better than Moscow's or are they pretty much the same?
    Can't say, sorry

    Special bag? To carry the dog in? Like a crate?
    Well, the crate is like a cage, i guess, right?
    I was talking about smth simpler, my auntie bought such thing, looks nice





    pembrokes, cardigans... they all are soo sweet, wish i had a picture of my Stepan to post here
    good luck

    Oh, those are so much nicer than a crate!! How sweet! (I'd really love to see some pictures of your corgi too. I wish you had some on hand; I love corgis so much!)

    Thank you so much for the information about pet passports. I'll definitely look into that more on the internet. You've been such a big help! I can't tell you how relieved I am to hear that traveling in the future with pets to and around Russia won't be a nightmare. Thank you!

    Cheshire_cat, do metros/trams require the use of a bag or crate for small dogs? Will they even let bigger dogs on with just a leash?

    Hey, resilient

    Yes, they do require a bag or a crate for dogs (in metro), i once tried to enter with my cocker on a leash - they didnt let me in at all as i had no bag (in buses you can hold a small dog in your hands, and for bigger dogs muzzle may be required
    As for big dogs (e.g. labrador), i have never seen any in metro...

    Edit:
    from ПРАВИЛА ПОЛЬЗОВАНИЯ ПЕТЕРБУРГСКИМ МЕТРОПОЛИТЕНОМ
    http://metro.spb.ru/9.html
    ...8. Пассажиры метрополитена имеют право:
    ...- бесплатно провозить мелких домашних животных и птиц в клетках, а также комнатно-декоративных собак и кошек в контейнерах, размеры которых не превышают 120 см (сумма измерений по длине, ширине, высоте) и исключающих самопроизвольный выход животных на территорию метрополитена;
    so, only smaller dogs and cats
