International Animal Export Regulations



If you have any questions or concerns regarding these regulations for exporting animals or animal products to a foreign country, you should contact the APHIS-VS Area Office in the State from which the animals or products will be exported.

Kuwait - Summary of Requirements



Note: Only stallions need EVA testing. All horses must be identified by a microchip and the microchip number should be written on the veterinary health certificate.

Other Information


The following requirements are those listed in the ASPCA booklet entitled "Traveling With Your Pet".
Certificates of health and rabies vaccination obtained between 30 days and 1 year before the time of arrival are required. The veterinary health certificate should be dated within 1 month before arrival into Kuwait.

For species not listed, the requirements are not known. However, exporters wanting to ship livestock whose requirements are not listed in the IREGS, should have the interested party (importer/buyer) in the country of destination apply for an Import Permit at the appropriate ministry. This Import Permit will most likely outline the specific requirements.
