Monkeys must be accompanied by a veterinary health certificate stating that the monkey has never been in a yellow fever area and has not traveled through such an area within 311 days before arrival in Pakistan. Monkeys must be branded.

For species not listed, the requirements are not known. However, exporters wanting to ship livestock or germplasm 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.
