Veterinary regulations

Health requirements applicable to the non-commercial movement of pet animals moved to Poland from European Union according to REGULATION
(EU) No 576/2013 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 12 June 2013 on the non-commercial movement of pet animals and repealing Regulation (EC) No 998/2003

Dogs, cats and ferrets (up to 5 animals):

1. must be identified with transponder - complying requirements indicated in Annex II of the Regulation 576/2013, or a clearly readable tattoo (until 3 July 2011)

2. must be vaccinated against rabies. The anti-rabies vaccine must comply with requirements indicated in Annex III of the Regulation 576/2013

3. must be accompanied by a passport issued by a veterinarian authorized by the competent authority certifying valid anti-rabies vaccination, or revaccination, if applicable.

The date of vaccination does not precede the date of application of the transponder or the date of reading of the transponder or the tattoo indicated in the appropriate section of the identification document. The period of validity of the vaccination starts from the establishment of protective immunity, which shall not be less than 21 days from the completion of the vaccination protocol required by the manufacturer for the primary vaccination, and continues until the end of the period of protective immunity.

POLISH LAW DOES NOT ALLOW TO BRING INTO POLAND YOUNG DOGS, CATS OR FERRETS UNDER 12 WEEKS OF AGE WITHOUT VALID VACCINATION AGAINST RABIES.
