What travel documents are required for a pet?

First and foremost, your pet must be vaccinated and microchipped. Of course, it is necessary to have a health booklet and a passport that contains stamps proving that vaccination and microchipping have been done. If you are traveling from a non-EU country, a veterinarian certificate stating that the pet is in good health condition is also required, no later than 10 days before the trip. The rabies vaccine should not be older than one year and should not be fresher than one month. A titer test is also required by law. At the border, customs officers usually do not even ask for a passport, and there is a very small chance that they will request a titer test. However, to avoid potential problems, it is best to provide everything that is required.

Are dogs allowed on Greek beaches?

Generally, there is no rule banning dogs from going to the beach in Greece. However, it is important that your dog does not disturb other people on the beach. This means no barking, no defecating in the sand, and no being off-leash. This particularly applies to large dogs. As for swimming, it is not allowed on popular and organized beaches. We often see dogs on such beaches, but if any of the other visitors report it to the police, you may have problems. Based on our experience, we advise you to avoid the most crowded beaches and go to less popular ones where your dog can also enjoy swimming in the sea. We have provided more details about vacationing with pets here.
