Importation and quarantine procedure for pets (cats and dogs) to The republic of Korea
 1. Documentation required and permitted number of animals for import to South Korea
    - Quarantine certificate or rabies vaccination certificate issued by a Quarantine Authority or Veterinarian. Where
      the animal is younger than 90 days, a health certificate issued by a Veterinarian is also required.

    - Number of animals allowed to be imported without prior notification: 4 animals or less. If more than 4 non-
      commercial animals are to be imported, then the National Veterinary Research and Quarantine Service
      branch office of entry needs to be informed in advance so that the animals can be held in a quarantined
      area for 1 day.

 2. Where the imported pet (cat or dog) is older than 90 days
 The rabies vaccination date should be clearly specified on the health certificate issued by the Quarantine
 Authority or Veterinarian, and the date of entry to South Korea should be at least 30 days from date of the rabies
 vaccination.

    - If the pet enters South Korea after 30 days from date of the rabies vaccination, and no health problems are
      found upon inspection, then no quarantine confinement is required.

    - If the pet enters South Korea within 30 days from date of the rabies vaccination, then the pet will need to be
      quarantined until the entire 30 day immunity formation period has been completed.

    - If the pet enters South Korea and the owner is not able to prove vaccination against rabies, or the vaccination
      has not been administered, the pet will be vaccinated against rabies at the owner's expense, and then
      quarantined for a 30 day immunity formation period.

 3. Where the imported pet (cat or dog) is under 90 days old
 The health certificate issued by the Quarantine Authority or Veterinarian should state that the pet is healthy and
 no symptom of animal infectious disease has been found.

    - If the pet enters South Korea and the owner can present a valid health certificate, then there will be no
      requirement for quarantine confinement.

 4. For pets being imported from a rabies-free zone
 Such as : Japan, Taiwan, Ireland, Cyprus, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Singapore, Portugal, Iceland, Jamaica,
 Guam, Hawaii, Samoa or United Kingdom, there will be no requirement for quarantine, regardless of the age of
 the cat or dog.

 5. Additional Certification is required to import cats from Australia and cats and dogs from
     Malaysia.
 Documentation required: a valid health certificate which testifies that the stated animal has been kept in a
 Hendra and Nipah virus-free region, or a valid health certificate which documents that the stated animal has
 been kept in a Hendra and Nipah virus-free area for 60 days before export and confirms a negative Hendra and
 Nipah virus test result (a blood test should have been conducted within 14 days prior to importation).
