Pets from Ukraine

If you are going to bring pets to Sweden, there are rules you must follow. The rules exist to prevent the spread of diseases, especially rabies. However, force majeure exceptions apply to pets who enter Sweden from Ukraine together with their owners. Necessary infection control measures will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. When pet owners arrive at the border, they must report the animals to the customs staff. If an animal from Ukraine is in Sweden without having been checked by customs personnel at the border, the animal must be taken to a veterinarian as soon as possible.
