On international passenger routes, there are rules for the transportation of animals according to which a passenger has the right to carry pets (dogs, cats, birds) in a special container at the expense of the norm of hand luggage in spaces intended for placement of hand luggage.

Dogs that are not placed in a special container, but are muzzled and kept in a belt harness, should be transported in a separate compartment of a compartment coach (no more than two). In this case, a passenger must pay the cost of travel tickets at the full rate for the number of occupied seats in a compartment.

If a carrier cannot provide a separate compartment for the transportation of animals, such transportation is not allowed. 

No additional fees are charged for the transportation of pets.

However, in the trains of Azerbaijan Railways CJSC it is only allowed to carry pets (dogs, cats, birds) in a separate compartment of compartment coaches. In this case, a passenger must pay the cost of travel documents at the full rate for the number of occupied seats in a compartment, except for the seats occupied by children whose travel was paid at the child rate.

A guide dog is allowed to be carried in coaches of any category without additional seat payment. In this case, a dog must be unmuzzled and kept in a short belt harness near a passenger whom a dog accompanies.

Please note! For the transportation of animals, the presence of a veterinary certificate is mandatory!
