Pet in tow and a possible layover in Korea or Japan

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been in the same situation? What was your experience like? Here's what I've gathered from the internet about importing pets to Korea:

  • The pet needs to have a rabies titer test (the Philippines is not rabies-free) which has to be done in an approved clinic in another country
  • Pet must have a microchip that meets the standards

Now are these necessary even if it's just a layover?

In your experience, did they have to quarantine your pet? Did you have to secure a permit over there?

Layover is not importing so the importation rules are not the ones that apply 


YMMV
