Import a guinea pig in Denmark : it is legal ?

Indlæg af Maroussia » tirs 29. jan 2008 15:17

Hi everybody !

Once again, sorry if I write this message in english : it's quite difficult for a danish language beginner to explain that in danish !

I have a friend breeder in Belgium, and she proposes me the guinea pig of my dreams. My question : is it legal to import a guinea pig in Denmark ?
Is there any problem at the customs ? Do the guinea pig has to be in quaranteen ?
How do other people do for have guinea pigs from other countries ?

Thank you for your reply if you have time.

Don't know whether to answer in Danish or English, but you get it in English.. ;)

It's legal to import to Denmark - my sister and I are currently planning an import from Canada to Denmark. How are you planning to get the cavy home?

When we import from Canada, the importer has to be approved as an importer from Canada, to do so. It's just a document from the ...? (Fødevarestyrelse) The cavys also need to be checked by a vet before they fly to Denmark (they are shipped by air without passager).

I don't know the rules regarding Belgium..

Hope it helped just a bit...

Thank you very much for your help !

The guinea pig would come with my friend, by plane or by car. :wink:

So you think with the document you talk about and a "medical certificate" it would be ok ??
Where can I find the document ??

PS : my friend is a professionnal breeder. Do she need to show some official papers ??

I dont know the rules in Belgium or how the rules are from Belgium to Denmark.

It depends on the rules Denmark have for cavies from Belgium. Im not sure that they are.

I can imagine that the rules differ depending if you travel by plane or by car.
Recently we got animals from UK, which travelled by car.... don't remember the travelrute tho, except I think they took a ferry from UK to somewhere and drove back - and I am not sure they needed a shitload of papers for the trip.

I think it depens on the rules Denmark have about animals from Belgium. And about if its by plain or car. There is a lot of rules.

i dont know if Belgium is a 3. world country then there is some speciffick rules...

I highly doubt that, since both belgium and denmark are members in EU... and I believe that there are 'easier' rules for transporting animals within the borders of fellow EU-countries.

Here is the link for Fødevarestyrelsen: http://www.foedevarestyrelsen.dk/forside.htm

You can always contact them for the rules etc.

As long as it is for private purpose and from a country in EU, you don't need any papers on the guinea pig, and you can bring up to 5 animals with you, without having any papers yourself, if I remember correctly.

Jeg skriver desværre på dansk. Måske kan en af de andre oversætte.
I sommers fik vi 12 dyr fra England med bil. Ruten gik gennem flere EU lande.
Reglerne som vi fik forklaret var:
Når det kun går gennem EU lande er det alm transport af kæledyr. Vi skulle ikke lave nogle papirer overhovedet.
Chaufføren skulle selvfølgelig lave nogle fragt papirer.
NÃ¥r dyrene er solgt inden de kommer til DK er det ikke import. Det er kun import hvis de bliver solgt i Danmark.

Ved flere grænseovergange blev det dog tjekket at dyrene havde det fint.
Men det var nok fordi det var en fragtbil.

Men det var lidt en jungle aft finde rundt i, og vi fik flere forskellige svar, når vi spurgte. :wink:

Loosely translated ;-)

This summer we got 12 animals from UK by car. The travelroute went through several EU-countries.
The rules, as was explained to us, are:
When you only travel through EU-contries, it is consideret regular transportation of pets. We didn't need any papers whatsoever.
The driver needed standard freightpapers.
When the animals are sold before arriving to Denmark, it is not import. It is only import, if they are sold in Denmark.

However, at several borders, it was checked that the animals were fine. But perhaps that was only because it was a cargo-truck.

But it was a bit of a mess to find out, and we got several different answers to our questions :wink:
