Bringing Pets to Kuwait

Written by Stinni on Monday, April 07, 2008

I brought three pets to Kuwait but that was ten years ago and I was moving here permanently. I'm sure the rules have changed since then.

Intlxptr has something on her blog about it though, so she would be the person to ask.

I believe the people at Bitzer's blog brought a dog as well.

I remember some paperwork from my husband's side (Kuwait) but don't remember doing anything special on my side (U.S.) for my cat. I had my parrots go through a complete checkup though and had bands put on their legs so that if I ever had to bring them back to the States, they had ID and it would be much easier and less quarantine time. The funny thing is that they were labeled as "casco" (African Grey parrots) on the paperwork from Kuwait and I got a funny look from the customs guy because I was coming through with cockatiels.

    New Service called Pet Passage; she takes care of all the paperwork, meets you at the airport with the permission for the pet, keeps you informed of anything you need to bring (papers) - read about it here:

    contact her at

    What happened with the sweet little dog you rescued?

    Mark - Thanks for the links. I've updated my post to include them.

    intlxpatr - What a great service. I linked to it in my post for an American woman who left a comment asking about bringing pets to Kuwait, hopefully it will help her through the process.

    As for the dog I rescued, "Mariette" was temporarily fostered with Margaret, the woman who started PAWS and then successfully adopted by a British family with children who love her to bits. I've heard that Mariette is very loving and a great pet - despite everything she went through (and only God knows the full extent of torture she went through.)

    Both Jesus and Mohammed said we will be judged in the end of times in how we treat the little ones - I don't think they were talking about children only, but all creatures weaker, and in need of protection. You, Stinni, earned a HALO! :-)
