Country Regulations

Our Country Requirements pages contain general information on the requirements for pet travel to give you an idea of the steps that lay ahead.

Contact us a few months before your pet’s intended travel date to avoid delays and disappointments in your pet’s shipment. Some countries require 7 months of preparations before your pet can fly.

It is important to understand these country requirements can and do change from time to time. Changes to country requirements can happen overnight, without any warning. Due to the many shipments we undertake to all the major international destinations and our strong business ties with IPATA agents worldwide, we generally have access to the most recent regulations which we can pass on to you before you take your pet for any vaccinations or blood tests.

When it comes to country requirements please trust your Pet Relocation Advisor. Many other professionals, e.g. your vet, may have some knowledge, but not necessarily the most up to date information, and may try to advise accordingly. Should you hear or be presented with any information that conflicts with the information given to you by your Pet Relocation Advisor, please contact us immediately.
Ultimately, we are responsible for your pet's wellbeing and, as the professionals you trust, are dedicated to reuniting your family as easily and as stress-free as possible.
Here are some of our most popular destinations.
