The Department of Veterinary Services, KLIA Animal Quarantine Stations request that clients book their animals on flights arriving in KLIA between the hours of 8:00am and 17:00pm. It is a very suitable time for the KLIA Animal Quarantine to facilitate the boarding and physical examination of the animals during day time. Please take note, due to recent mortality case of a dog in our custody that arrived after midnight, our Chief Senior Assistant Director, Biosecurity and SPS Management Division, Dr. Norlizan b. Md. Noor have granted the approval of KLIA Animal Quarantine operational hours, between 8:00am and 17:00pm. This new rule and regulation takes effect starting on 1st July 2012.
Unfortunately, the government veterinarian could not assist in the post mortem of transit animal at the Animal Hotel. However, these are the list of private veterinary hospitals/clinics that can be contacted:
Any animal inbound to Malaysia, the animals must have an Import Permit and Health Certificate endorsed by a Government Veterinarian. We have been receiving many cases lately where animals entering Malaysia without import permit and health certificate endorsed by Government certificate, particularly from Europe (Norway and Belgium). This is to notify the public that Malaysia cannot accept PET Passport yet.
