Moving to Ibiza with your pet

Moving to Ibiza with your pet
If you are dreaming about moving to Ibiza but can’t bear the idea of living your furry friends behind, here’s the good news: there is no problem to bring your pets on the island, but there are few rules and regulations that you will need to follow in order to get your pet into Ibiza and Spain in general.


1. Make sure that your pet has an ISO Microchip inserted.
This is required by Spanish law for your pet to enter the country – your local vet should be able to arrange this for you.

2. Ensure that your pet is up to date with the vaccinations.
The Spanish law requires proof of vaccination before letting your pet move in, so make sure you’re up to date and have the documentation. If you are travelling from a low incidents of rabies country – you will be allowed to bring your furry-friend to Spain if it has been vaccinated at least 21 days prior to travel. Your vet in your country of origin should be able to advise you on this.

3. Request a EU Pet Passport
If you are travelling from an EU country with your pet – you are required by law to have a pet passport for them – this includes a descriptions of the animal, dates of birth, breed, gender and colour, microchip info, vaccinations dates and details of your previous vet as well as your personal information.


4. By plane
The only airline that currently flies into Ibiza on which you can bring your pet is Vueling. Each airline is different, some insist that your pet travel in the hold in a sturdy case – while Vueling will allow your pet to travel in the cabin with you in a non-rigid carrier. The company has several rules about travelling with your pet – you can find out more here.

5. By ferry
Balearia Ferries also allow you to travel with your pet, but you must use their own pet cages and they reserve the right to refuse entry to your and your pet if there is not enough availability during that journey. Find out more about their rules and regulations here.


Whether you will arrive by plane or ferry expect your pet’s paperwork to be checked upon arrival. Once you’ll be in your new home, it’s time to enjoy being in Ibiza with your special one.
