As a general indicator, the above list may be of some use but I have my doubts about its accuracy. I am completely certain that, for example, Norway and Denmark are rabies free yet they do not figure on the list.

I suspect that there is some criteria regarding island nations which differs from others which border nations with some record of rabies. Don't know what it would be since Sweden makes its way onto that list. It may simply be that these nations have declared themselves rabies free whereas Norway and Denmark have no certainty regarding the matter therefore they've not declared it.

Bali, which is on the list, has a rabies epidemic at the moment, at least according to Radio National this morning, with many thousands of dogs having been destroyed.

No idea. The last recorded incident of rabies in Scandinavia was, I believe, 2004 when a rabid arctic fox found its way from Russia into Finland.

Denmark, bordering Germany, may well be a different issue.

Also remember that some of these statements of rabies free is not the truth. The UK has a low level on going problem with rabies that is not talked about except in the circles that deal with it. It does not surprise me that they claim rabies free even though in reality they are not.

Best bet is know what documentation you need to legally enter the country and make sure you have it. In the EU the best bet is to not go to the UK first but to go to Continental Europe and get you pet chipped and a pet passport with having the proper documents upon entering. Once that is done than problems with UK pretty much vanish as long as you keep your documents up to date. Warning there are folks who will try to give you a hard time anyway in part of the UK and best bet is know the law and show them the LAW. they tend to back down when they are shown that they are pulling crud.

Other than that Most of the EU is very laid back and as long as you get the animal chipped and proper health documents (which you need to get the chip) most will not even give you a second look.

... as special (national) regulations apply to Sweden, Ireland, Malta and Great Britain / Northern Ireland, all other EC countries have the same regulations:

- pets need an electronic identification (an implanted micro chip). Make sure that this chip can be read out in the EU, otherwise the pet holder has to take along a reading advice. (Until 2011 it is still allowed that pets carry an identification tatoo.)

- you need to carry a pet's passport that can be issued by your local vetenarian. This passport has to contain the infos about the necessary vaccination (esp. rabies).

Special regulations for Germany: American Staffordshire-Terrier, Staffordshire-Bullterrier and similar (dangerous) races are not allowed into Germany. No problem for all other friendly dogs. Dogs have to be on leash in many bigger german cities - ask local authorities/police.

Denmark: It is strictly forbidden to bring Pit-Bullterriers and Tosas (or any mixed breed with one of these) into Denmark: Severe fines, imprisonment, dog wil be killed. *ALL dogs have to be on leash on beaches between April 1st and September 30th and in forests all year round.

Entering the EU from outside the EU:

Entering from* Andorra, Iceland, Kroatia, Monaco or Norway: same as travelling between countries inside the EU. (But when traveling from EU countries into one of these, own national rules apply!)*

Entering from all other countries:

Things get complicated (as many rules that originate in Brussels) and I tried to create some structure by using colours :

The EU distinguishes between countries that have a similar rabies-situation as the EU:

List (Annex II, Part 3) from Nov. 18. 2008 - it will be actualized, if necessary:

• Antigua und Barbuda

• Argentina

• Aruba

• Ascension

• Australia

• Bahrain

• Barbados

• Belarus

• Bermuda

• BVI

• Chile

• Falkland Islands

• Fidschi

• French-Polynesia

• Hongkong

• Jamaika

• Japan

• Kaiman Islands

• Kanada

• Malaysia

• Mauritius

• Mayotte

• Mexiko

• Montserrat

• New Kaledonia

• Newseeland

• Netherland Antillies

• Russian Federation

• Singapur

• St. Helena

• St. Kitts und Nevis

• St. Pierre und Miquelon

• St. Vincent and the Grenadines

• Taiwan

• Trinidad und Tobago

• Vanuatu

• UAE

• USA

• Wallis and Futuna


"...under* *Regulation (EC) No 998/2003 a list of third countries was to be drawn up before 3 July 2004. To be included on that list, a third country should demonstrate its rabies status and that it complies with certain conditions relating to notification, monitoring, veterinary services, prevention and control of rabies and regulation of vaccines"

... and still other third countries.

CHAPTER III

Conditions relating to movements from third countries

Article 8

1. At the time of movement, pet animals of the species listed in parts

A and B of Annex I shall:

( a ) when they come from a third country listed in section 2 of part B

and in part C of Annex II, and enter:

(i) one of the Member States listed in section 1 of part B of Annex

II, satisfy the requirements of Article 5(1)
(see further down)

(ii) one of the Member States listed in part A of Annex II, either

directly or after transit through one of the territories listed in

part B of Annex II, satisfy the requirements of Article 6;

( b ) when they come from another third country and enter:

(i) one of the Member States listed in section 1 of part B of Annex

II:


— be identified by means of the identification system defined

in Article 4, and

— have undergone:

— anti-rabies vaccination in accordance with the

requirements of Article 5, and

— a neutralising antibody titration at least equal to 0,5 IU/

ml carried out on a sample taken by an authorised veterinarian

at least 30 days after vaccination and three

months before being moved.

The antibody titration need not be renewed on a pet

animal which has been revaccinated at the intervals

laid down in Article 5(1).

This three-month period shall not apply to the re-entry

of a pet animal whose passport certifies that the titration

was carried out, with a positive result, before the animal

left the territory of the Community;

(ii) one of the Member States listed in part A of Annex II, either

immediately or after transit through one of the territories listed

in part B of Annex II, be placed in quarantine unless they have

▼B

2003R0998— EN— 16.03.2007 — 010.001— 6

been brought into conformity with the requirements of Article 6

after their entry into the Community.

2. Pet animals must be accompanied by a certificate issued by an

official veterinarian or, on re-entry, by a passport certifying compliance

with the provisions of paragraph 1.

3. Notwithstanding the above provisions:

( a ) pet animals from the territories listed in section 2 of part B of

Annex II for which it has been established, under the procedure

laid down in Article 24(2), that such territories apply rules at least

equivalent to Community rules as provided for in this Chapter, shall

be subject to the rules laid down in Chapter II;

( b ) the movement of pet animals between, respectively, San Marino, the

Vatican and Italy, Monaco and France, Andorra and France or

Spain, and Norway and Sweden may continue under the conditions

laid down by national rules in force on the date laid down in the

second paragraph of Article 25;

( c ) in accordance with the procedure laid down in Article 24(2) and on

conditions to be determined, the entry of unvaccinated pet animals

under three months old of the species listed in part A of Annex I

from the third countries listed in parts B and C of Annex II may be

authorised where the rabies situation in the country concerned so

warrants.

4. The arrangements for implementing this Article, and in particular

the model certificate, shall be adopted in accordance with the procedure

laid down in Article 24(2).


Article 5 1. When being moved, pet animals of the species listed in parts A and B of Annex I must, without prejudice to the requirements laid down in Article 6: ( a ) be identified in accordance with Article 4, and ( b ) be accompanied by a passport issued by a veterinarian authorised by the competent authority certifying valid anti-rabies vaccination, or revaccination if applicable, in accordance with the recommendations of the manufacturing laboratory, carried out on the animal in question with an inactivated vaccine of at least one antigenic unit per dose (WHO standard). 2. Member States may authorise the movement of animals listed in parts A and B of Annex I which are under three months old and unvaccinated, if they are accompanied by a passport and have stayed in the place in which they were born since birth without contact with wild animals likely to have been exposed to the infection or are accompanied by their mothers on whom they are still dependent.

... I hope this is of any help

Uwe
