Bringing Pets to Yemen

Pets may be brought in if accompanied by a veterinary health certificate and an import permit from the veterinary office in Yemen. Dogs and cats require current rabies and distemper vaccinations, as well as a general certificate of good health dated within 2 weeks of arrival. Shipment through Lufthansa is recommended. Some birds, including African parrots, and animals such as turtles and reptiles are not permitted entry. There are two local vets who can manage basic immunisations and simple ailments. Bring a supply of any special pet medications, supplies, food, or kitty litter.

Domestic animals common in Yemen are cats, dogs, donkeys, cows, sheep goats and poultry. There is also a long standing tradition of bee-keeping; Yemeni honey is reputedly among the finest in the world and its high price reflects this. Most of it is exported, some to the Gulf states to be used as medicine, or as luxury. If you want to buy it, it is better to accompany a Yemeni who can take you to the best places. Doves are often kept on the roof, and occasionally birds in a cage. Cats and dogs roam wild and feed on garbage . Pet dogs attract the attention of children, but watchdog are likely to discourage them.

The National Veterinary Services development program, a project of the UK Overseas Development Agency, offers quality veterinary services, including immunisation and surgery, and home visits can be arranged in emergencies.
