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.
Luxembourg - Summary of Requirements
Luxembourg is a Member State of the European Union. Luxembourg accepts English-only health certificates. If the health certificate for a particular species or commodity is not listed below, please refer to the
European Union website.
Microchip implantation must occur PRIOR to rabies vaccination. Any rabies vaccination that occurs prior to microchip implantation is not considered valid. If a microchip is being implanted for the first time, 21 days must have elapsed after rabies vaccination before the health certificate can be issued regardless of whether the animal was up-to-date on its previous rabies vaccinations.
Pet Passports – Dogs, cats, and ferrets returning to Luxembourg after traveling to the United States may be accompanied by an EUPet Passport issued prior to leaving the EU. An EU health certificate is not required, and APHIS should not endorse the Passport.
If an animal needs a rabies booster while in the United States, this information cannot be entered into the EU Passport by a US veterinarian. A regular EU health certificate must be issued by the accredited veterinarian and endorsed by APHIS.
