Windhoek - Post Report Question and Answers

Are qualified veterinarians and/or good kennel services available? Do animals need to be quarantined upon entry to the country? Are there other considerations regarding pets that are particular to this country?

No quarantine was needed from our dog that arrived from Nairobi. It's a HOT country. Always make sure your dog has access to water and a way to get in and out of your house/garden. Yes, good vets. - Jan 2021

Incoming pets do not need to quarantined if coming from the U.S. There are good vets here. There is a vet located directly next to the U.S. Embassy. - Jan 2016

Home quarantine once the pets arrive, but getting pets here at all is a giant PITA. Go through a pet shipper. - May 2013

Not sure. - Jan 2013

No, just need a lot of paperwork and coordination with the embassy ahead of time. - Jul 2012
