Swedish Customs provides important general information about the regulations concerning travel with animals. The Swedish Board of Agriculture is the public authority responsible for regulations on importing animals into Sweden. Please contact them for further information.
It is important that animals crossing the borders are not carrying infectious diseases. It is also important to combat illegal trade. The regulations applicable for the import of live animals depend on where the animal is coming from and whether it is a pet or other type of animal. We conduct checks at the border for the Swedish Board of Agriculture.
