Getting an EU pet passport for your dog, cat or ferret

In Ireland EU pet passports are issued by private vets to the pet owner.  If you wish to have your pet’s photograph on its passport (this is optional), you should bring a photograph with you to your vet. The photograph should be no bigger than 6 cm wide and 4 cm long, should feature the pet only and show its colour and markings clearly.

When you get the passport from your vet, check all entries are legible and correct, as any errors could lead to your pet being detained on entry to another country, or on return to Ireland.
