Hi Annew,

Please see this exerpt from the Expat Arrivals Shipping to Portugal page:

Moving pets to Portugal will require either an EU pet passport from residents of the EU, or a Certificate of Health from overseas countries. Non-EU countries must also provide proof of a rabies vaccine and micro-chip details. Portugal also requires an unusual amount of red tape to clear animals through customs.
