Departure to Dublin

Customs and import to Dublin

Home > Expat Guides > Europe > Ireland > Dublin

If you are a member of the European Union, you don't have any particular custom forms to complete when you move to Ireland.

In any other country, (except when your country has a specific agreement, such as within the Commonwealth) you must provid the custom office with:

  • A detailed inventory of all your furnitures with date and signature.
  • All documents pertaining to the move (passport, work contract, visa…) .

Bringing Pets to Ireland

Dog National Legislation is present in Ireland regarding the importation of pets so as to keep the country rabies free.

A new system is in place within the EU called the Pet Passport System which allows pets to be brought directly into Ireland from low-risk rabies countries.

Certain conditions apply as outlined on the ISPCA website.

Pets traveling from outside the qualifying EU countries will be subject to six months quarantine.
