Hi,

I know there are a couple of topics set about bringing their dogs back to their country like England, etc. But none on France. I guess different countries will have different set of rules. We are planning to bring our dog back at the end of this year.

The dog has not being spayed yet, no microchip yet. So when do I need to do all the procedures if we were to bring her back in December? And what are the papers required?

Thank you in advance!!

France is part of the EU, so for all these countries the same rules apply:

micro-chip or tattoo
up-to-date vaccinations
Rabies testing
export paper and health certificate from Thailand
import permit from France

Rabies authorized labs in France (where you have to send your animal's blood sample to):

After you have send the blood sample to one of those lab's and you've got the result back, your dog still needs to stay another 3 months in Thailand before it can enter France.

Vaccinations should be given not less than 1 month or more than one year to your dog prior to travel.

Hope this helps. :D

Thanks for all this information,

Two questions as I have the same issue as the poster :
1) How can you send blood to france to test it ? Pay for it ? Get the result ?
2) How/Where do you get the export paper and health certificate from Thailand ?

Maybe I can help a little as I'm in the middle of all this myself:

I believe you can send the sample to any EU approved lab, but it obviously might make sense to mail it to one in the country you plan to import to, ie. France.
Here's a website with links to EU approved labs in the EU: http://ec.europa.eu/...ratories_en.htm

To answer your specific questions:
1. Check with/contact the specific lab you choose. Eg. check the requirements as listed by Biobest in the UK here (download the paperwork): http://www.biobest.c...s-overseas.html
2. A Thai vet needs to do this. It'll cost a fair bit.

At Ban Mha ka Meaw in Chang Mai they charge 300 baht (plus 50 baht doctor's fee) for drawing the blood and making it into a serum.

Someone called me a while ago with a similar question and told me that another vet in CM asked 1,500 baht. Talking about a major rip-off. :(

The second answer was in reply to the question about export docs/vet certificates.
I've been quoted approx. 10k for the "entire" package for that here in Bangkok by two separate pet hospitals.

May I ask just out of interest, will your dog be required to stay in quarantine when it arrives in France? or can you take him/her straight home?

No quarantine in France IF you have all the right paperwork.
