Many pilgrims choose to travel with their best friend – their dog. If you are crossing the border into Norway, there are strict rules for vaccines and pet passport. In Scandinavia we don’t have many of the pests and diseases that can be found elsewhere in Europe, and we’d like to keep it that way 🙂

So here is some useful information and a link to the Norwegian authorities pages for food and animal security.

Checklist for bringing your pet into Norway from EU:

  1. 1. The animal must be ID-marked.
  2. 2. The animal must have a valid anti-rabies vaccination.
  3. 3. The animal must have received an anti-echinococcus treatment (dogs only).
  4. 4. The animal must have a pet passport.
