Pet import to Zanzibar


I will be moving to Zanzibar (from america) with my cat in August 2019. I know the details regarding health certification, vaccines and import permits.

Ideally, we would enter through Abeid Amani Karume International Airport in Zanzibar. Is it possible for pets to enter there? Or must we go through the mainland via Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam or Kilimanjaro International Airport in Arusha.

Thank you!!


Just to update - you can now enter with a cat through the airport in Zanzibar, you do not have to go through Dar es Salaam!
