Traveling to Turkey with your pet

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

Traveling to TurkeyAre you planning a trip to Turkey and want to take your beloved pet along with you? Well, for travelling to Turkey with your pet, you will have to go through a multi-step process and you will have to set up quite a few appointments, your pet needs to get the immunization shots and you will also have to get a certificate of good health for your pet. You will also have to keep in mind that flying with your pet in the cabin is way easier than flying the pet in a cargo hold as the latter involves significant delay. Also securing approval from customs is a fairly costly affair.

You will first have to call the airline pet department and find out whether your pet can travel in the cabin or will have to travel in the cargo holder. While talking to the department representative make sure that you clearly specify the type of pet that you will be traveling with. The Turkish Air allows pets to travel in cabin and you should try and book your tickets with them as pets in cargo hold will involve a lot of extra paperwork. Most airlines have a few requirements for flying with pets and you must make sure that you meet all these requirements.

Next, you will have to make sure that your pet gets all the immunization shots. Dogs and cats need rabies vaccine before entering Turkey and your pet has to be immunized by a state approved veterinarian so that your pet gets the Form 7001 (certificate of good health). This will certify that your pet is fit to travel by air (required by all airlines) and your pet is healthy (a requirement for entering Turkey). When you arrive in Turkey, make sure that you have all the required documents with you. If your pet is in the cargo area you will have to pay 500 Turkish Lira to release your pet.
