Mongolia does not quarantine healthy pets. However, your pet must be vaccinated for rabies and other diseases at least 30 days but not more than 12 months prior to entry. Shortly before travel, the Health Certificate for Mongolia must be completed. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included.
Upon entry to Mongolia you must register your pet with the Custom's veterinarian.
Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet may be refused entry and the relevant authority in consultation with an authorised veterinarian can decide to return the pet home, or place the pet in quarantine at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for pet, or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be arranged.
All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibian, 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. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of Mongolia.
Although dry and canned cat food can be found in the market, it’s still a good idea to bring what you'll need for your pet or be prepared to order it from your home country. Kitty litter is not always available, but paper from the shredder makes excellent filler for the litter box.
Be careful about taking your dog into the countryside in Mongolia; fleas may carry bubonic plague.
