Import from non-listed countries outside EU

Countries outside EU which do not have a control system for rabies are called non-listed countries outside EU. The risk that animals are infected with rabies is greater in these countries, and the requirements concerning rabies protection are therefore stricter upon import from these countries. To the right is a link to a site where you can see the different groups and lists of countries. The requirements for bringing a dog, cat or ferret to Sweden from a non-listed country outside EU are described below.
