A number of non-EU countries have pre-printed EU health certificates.  Please check with your authorities before you begin completing this form.

All EU Health Certificates MUST BE signed and endorsed by an official veterinarian. An official veterinarian means a vet who is a Government employee (for example in APHIS/USDA in the United States of America, or in the Canadian Food Inspection Agency in Canada).

If the EU health cert is not endorsed by an official vet, your pet will fail the compliance check, and might not be allowed to enter Ireland.
