How to get an EU Pet Passport in Ireland

INFORMATION FOR PET OWNERS

Every Irish pet that is brought out of Ireland to another EU Member State or re-enters Ireland must have an EU Pet Passport. In Ireland this is issued by private Vets directly to pet owners.

If you wish to have your pet’s photograph on its passport (this is optional), you should bring a photograph with you to your vet. The photograph should be no bigger than 6 cm wide and 4 cm long, should feature the pet only and show its colour and markings clearly.

On receipt of the Pet Passport from your vet check all entries are legible and correct, as any errors could lead to your pet being detained.

INFORMATION FOR VETERINARY PRACTITIONERS

Blank passports are available for purchase from the Department. If you have not yet registered with the Department and received your information pack/order form contact the Pet Passport Section at livetrade@agriculture.gov.ie or 01-6072127.
