Pet Travel to Martinique

To transport pets into Martinique it should be identified with a microchip meeting ISO standards 11784 and accompanied by their pet parent or by a natural person responsible for the pet on behalf of the owner. Martinique requires the microchip meeting ISO standards 11784 which is the 15 digit transponder operating at 134.2 kHz. The 128 kHz 10 digit or 9 digit are not acceptable.

Cats and dogs over three months old may be admitted temporarily with a bilingual veterinary certificate, which includes proof of anti-rabies inoculation at least 30 days prior to entry and proof of deworming for tapeworm 10 days or less prior to arrival.

Pets (dogs and cats only) under 3 months old and unvaccinated may enter if they have a veterinary certificate and have stayed in the country of birth without contact with wild animals likely to have been exposed to infection or are accompanied by their mothers on whom they are still dependent.

All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibians, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.

These rules apply only when the pet is entering Martinique from one of the following “third countries”: United States, Andorra, Antigua, Aruba, Ascension Island, Australia, Bahrain, Barbados, Barbuda, Bermuda, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Cayman Islands, Fiji, Falkland Islands, French Polynesia, Hong Kong, Iceland, Jamaica, Japan, Liechtenstein, Mayotte, Mauritius, Monaco, Montserrat, Netherlands Antilles, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Norway, Russian Federation, Saint Helena, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Pierre et Miquelon, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, San Marino, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, United States of America, Vanuatu, Vatican City State, Wallis and Futuna.

Where the “third country” is not stated above, then the pet can only enter Martinique when it has been identified with a microchip meeting ISO Standards 11784 and has a veterinary certificate showing that it has not only undergone an anti-rabies vaccination but that also a rabies serological test has been carried out at least 30 days after vaccination and 3 months before being moved. This 3-month period will not apply to re-entry into Martinique, if its passport shows that the test was carried out with a positive effect before leaving Martinique.
