Frequently asked questions

Is my pet on the banned breeds list for Spain?

Spain does not ban any dog breeds from entering the country. However, certain strong and aggressive breeds of dogs, such as Staffordshire Terrier, Dogo Argentino, Fila Brasileiro, Pitbull Terrier and others, are considered dangerous dogs. These dog breeds must be mandatorily registered with the local council and have a licence. Their vaccinations must always be up-to-date, and they must be muzzled in public. They must also be restrained when they enter Spain during their post-entry check. Read more

Can my puppy travel to Spain?

Non-vaccinated puppies and kittens cannot travel to Spain from any country. Only puppies and kittens vaccinated for rabies at 12 weeks and have finished their mandatory 21-day wait after vaccination can travel to Spain. Puppies and kittens from EU countries and third countries must be at least three months old to fly to Spain.

Local Pet Requirements

A pet parent must ensure their dog is well-cared for and lives in a clean and hygienic environment. One of the first things to do is register your dog with the local municipal council and obtain a pet licence. You will need your pet’s microchip details and a health certificate from your vet to register your dog. You will need a separate pet licence if your dog belongs to a potentially dangerous breed.
