Pets in Sri Lanka

Hello everyone,

Many of us in Sri Lanka have four-legged friends. What about you? Do you have one or more pets? Share your experience with us!

What are the formalities to import pets in Sri Lanka? What about pet adoption procedures in the country? Did you bring your pet from your home country to your host country? If so, did everything turn out fine?

What do Sri lankans think about pets? Are they comfortable with dogs, cats or unusual pets?

Share your advice!


I have 3 lovely LOCAL dogs. A friend who recently imported a dog from Germany may answers your question. The application for a  permit to import an animal has to be done in Kandy.

Very expensive though
