Dogs and cats must be vaccinated for RABIES within the last year or 12 months (if recently administered 21 days should elapse after the rabies vaccination date as a condition for allowing the pet to enter the UAE).

There cannot be a gap in the rabies vaccinations from year to year. (If there is a gap a Rabies Serum Test will be required)
