In order for your pet(s) to travel inside and outside the European Union, stay in local hotels, visit a groomer, kennel facility and attend lessons with a trainer, you will need to acquire a European Union pet passport. Pet owners should apply for an EU pet passport as soon as they obtain a physical address (i.e. when they move out of temporary lodging and into permanent housing). To get information and start the process, contact the Vicenza Vet Clinic.
Veterinarian services are provided at Vicenza. If you would like to contact the clinic for information, call 39 0444 619160 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pets must enter the European Union through an approved airport in Europe. Contact your airline to ensure that your layovers and arrival destinations allow pets. If you have a large or "aggressive breed" dog, make sure to notify your airline in advance, as additional restrictions and crate requirements can be imposed on these pets.
Keep in mind that airlines can restrict travel with pets during summer and winter months. Make sure you check with your airline for updated temperature guidelines. Also, there are additional restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Returning to CONUS
All pets returning to the United States must have an export document or pet passport issued by the Unita Locale Socio Sanitaria, or ULSS, Office and a health certificate issued within 10 days of arrival to your destination. If you are traveling in Europe, only a pet passport is required. Contact the Vicenza Veterinary Clinic for additional information and necessary documents.
