It is essential to ensure that the pet is eligible to travel not only to or from Italy also any other countries it may pass through.
The animal will have to travel in an approved container. It must be big enough for the animal to stand, sit and turn around in during the journey. The container must allow adequate ventilation.
If the journey is longer than a few hours, food and drink may need to be supplied.
Several train companies, sea ferries and airlines carry caged animals across borders (normally a pet travelling by air will be in the hold). Consult the carrier for details.
Animals must be transported via approved routes.
Euro Tunnel is pet friendly, allowing pets to travel in the car.
Guide dogs for the blind entering Italy must adhere to the same requirements as other domestic pets above. Once in Italy the service dog has unhindered access to all public buildings, shops and may travel unrestricted on all public transport.
