Various customs rules

  • Note: The minimum age for the consumption or purchase of alcoholic beverages may differ in the country from the minimum age for the import of alcoholic beverages.

Medicines

  • If you use medication, take a European Medical Passport with you. This document includes information such as medication use, illness, conditions and the contact details of your doctor. It is available for a small fee from general practitioners and pharmacies, among others.
  • You must have a medical certificate with you to take medicines that fall under the Opium Act (such as certain sleeping pills, ADHD medicines and strong painkillers). Request the statement at least 4 weeks before departure.

Pets

  • A dog or cat needs an EU pet passport, available from the vet. This passport contains a description of the animal, the name and address of the owner, the registration number of the chip (standard ISO microchip 11784/11785 is inserted) and proof of vaccination against rabies. There is also room in the passport for a health certificate and other treatments or vaccinations.
