- Animals that are not to be sold or change owners once they have been brought to Sweden.
- Animals that travel with the owner or owner´s representative
- Animals that are not transported as freight with or without the owner or owner´s representative
The animals must have been born and raised in captivity, as it is not allowed to keep wild-captured animals as pets in Sweden.
Import rules can be changed if, for example, the risk of spreading infectious animal diseases requires so.
