Pet dogs and cats
This is a summary information about bringing pet dogs and cats to Sweden.
When entering into Sweden from another country you must report your pet to Swedish Customs.
Report your pet to Swedish Customs
Report online – choose the green channel or lane
If you live in an EU country, you can report your dog or cat to Swedish Customs here on our website. When you arrive in Sweden you can then use the green channel or lane when going through Customs. If a customs official carries out a check, you must be able to produce the registration number you received when you reported your pet.
Report at the border – choose the red channel or lane
When you arrive in Sweden, you should contact a customs officer by going to a so-called "red point". You find the red point in the red channel or lane in the passenger surveillance area.
If there is no customs officer there, contact Customs in one of the following ways:
- Use the phone in the red channel or lane in the passenger surveillance area.
- Call the phone number specified on the poster in the red channel or lane in the passenger surveillance area.
- Go to the nearest customs clearance office.
- If you cannot take the red channel or lane, such as when you are travelling on a direct train between Denmark and Sweden, contact a uniformed customs officer on the train. If you do not see a uniformed customs officer on the train, you must call the customs officer on duty on +46 40 661 32 25.
