Importing a horse/questions please :o)

by Pandisis Online Now Oct 25, 2008 at 7:06 PM

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure if anyone here will know the answers to my questions or some suggestions of places to find the answers. I have inquiries into the embassies and to a few tour companies but have not heard anything back and am trying to expand my quest for answers. We have also looked at the embassy websites to no avail.

1. What are the Kazakhstan's restrictions and regulations on the import and
export of horses?
For example what paperwork is needed as far as vaccinations, proof of
ownership?

2. Are there any tests the horses will have to take once in your country
if they come from another?

3. Will the horses need to be registered anywhere on entry to your
country, or upon their purchase?

4. Are there any border crossings where horses are restricted from
crossing into and out of the country?

5. Are there any border crossings where it would be easier to
import/export a horse, in your opinion?

Any help on any of these questions would be absolutely amazing. We are trying to decide our route, but that all depends on which borders we may cross with horses and which we cannot. The plan is to travel through Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan to start.

Thank again for your time and knowledge!

-Noelle

    As you are in the US, I would suggest you contact the Throughbred Breeders Assn, The Horse Racing Body of America, (the body that controls racing,) The FEI orginisation, etc. All these bodies should be able to steer you in the correct direction. Quarantine will certainly play a part of this, probabaly in every country, and there will also possibly be vacination requirements as well (ie for equine infuelenza etc.)

    Just somewhere for you to start.
