Bringing Children & Pets

Children are not expected to have any additional documents to travel that an adult would not need. However, it’s important to note that Egypt, depending on where you are staying, may not be suitable for children as the locals can be fascinated by foreigners and are known to attempt to stroke the hair and faces of women and children, especially blonde-haired foreigners, with little regard to personal space.

All imported pets must be approved by the Government Veterinary Authority in their country of origin, this varies from country to country. Pets will also need to be implanted with a microchip compatible with international standards, an APHIS form 7001 issues within 10 days of departure from your vet and all necessary vaccinations including:

  • For dogs:
  • Distemper
  • Hepatitis
  • Parvo
  • Leptospirosis
  • DHLPP
  • Rabies
  • For cats:
  • Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis
  • Calicivirus
  • Panleukopenia
  • FVRCP
  • Rabies
The certificate issued as proof of vaccination must have been issued within the last 12 months up to a minimum of 4 weeks before arrival and should state the name of the pet, the owner’s name, the pet’s breed, sex, birth date or age and the vaccines administered.
