Pets to Bring into Hungary
 
 
 
 
 

Hungary is a member of the Pet Travel Scheme which allows pet carnivores (dogs, cats and ferrets) from any of the countries covered by the scheme to enter Hungary without quarantine provided they meet specified anti-rabies, blood sampling and anti-worm/anti-tick hygiene requirements. The pet must be micro-chipped, vaccinated against rabies and blood tested, and can be brought into Hungary only after six months have elapsed after a satisfactory blood test.

Your pet should be identified with a microchip that meets ISO standards 11784/11785. This is a 15 digit ISO compliant microchip that operates at 134.2 kHz. If your pet does not have the ISO microchip then the owner must provide their own scanner. Your pet must also be accompanied by the bi-lingual certificate of the country you are entering as prescribed by rule EU 998. This pet passport must show that the pet has been vaccinated against rabies and certain other diseases by a licensed veterinarian at least 30 days prior to travel.

Pets entering from a country with a high incidence of rabies must have a serological (blood titre) test performed at least 90 days prior to entering the country. This test must be performed at an approved laboratory.

Failure to comply with these regulations will not only mean that the pet is refused entry but that the relevant authority in consultation with an authorised vet can decide to return the pet home, or place the pet in quarantine at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for pet; or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be envisaged.

All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibian, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Owners traveling with pet's other than dogs, cats and ferrets are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.

A number of well-trained veterinarians practice in Budapest; many speak English and make house calls. A variety of pet foods are available locally to include Iams, Eukanuba and Whiskas. Clumping cat litter is not available in Budapest; bring a supply. The commissary stocks a small variety of American, brand name cat food, dog food, and clumping kitty litter.
