If you have decided to live in Turkey, then your pets can also join you, as bringing your pets into the country is allowed and exempt from customs tax. Pets are limited to cats, dogs or birds. You can only bring 2 cats or dogs or up to 10 fish. They need to be accompanying you during your trip into Turkey.
The necessary documents are:
- A health certificate from the vet (issued 10 days prior to the trip)
- Rabies and other vaccination certificate
- Pet ID Card
Your pet is also required to go through a brief inspection by authorized veterinary personnel at the port of entry upon arrival.
