Pet Import Requirements in Botswana

Importation of Pets:

Pet owners should bear in mind the hot climate of Botswana before deciding to import their cat or dog. Also, it should be noted that rabies is widespread in Botswana, thus making re-exportation difficult, often requiring quarantine.

The most updated import requirements may be obtained from the Directorate of Veterinary Services in Gaborone.

Quarantine is not required in Botswana once the surgeon has examined the animal.

Required Documents:
- Import Permit issued by Botswana State Veterinarian or the Department of Agriculture.
- State Veterinary Certificate confirming the animal is of good health and the inoculations are valid.
- Valid Rabies Certificate
- Health Certificate – obtained within 30 days of departure.
