Travel with Service Animals

For traveling with seeing-eye dogs and other service animals, the same rules apply as for all other animals, e. g. all dogs need a transponder/ microchip (ISO 11784 or ISO 11785) or a tattoo for identification. Furthermore, your dog must be vaccinated against rabies.

Please visit the website of the German Embassy for a complete list of requirements and make sure you download and fill out the Veterinary Certificate.

All animals are subject to a security screening exiting and entering the country. Please visit the website of the Transportation Security Administration for a detailed explanation of security procedures in the USA.
