A valid pet passport allows you to take your pet abroad with you on holiday.
A Pet Passport also acts as an export certificate for animals that are going to live permanently abroad.
If you are unsure whether a Pet Passport is sufficient or correct documentation for travelling to your destination, please contact us or DEFRA.
Please be aware that there are uncertainties regarding EU travel with your pet post-Brexit. If you are travelling with your pet on or around 31st October 2019, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss travel requirements. Until further information is available, we would advise avoiding non-essential travel around this time.
Travelling With Your Pet After Brexit
It is very important to remember that you have a 21 day waiting period before the pet passport is valid for travel with your pet. For example, if your pet was vaccinated on 1st September (day zero), you can travel from 22nd September (day 21).
Some EU countries insist on yearly rabies vaccinations if a resident in these countries. Please ensure you enquire what the local regulations are to ensure that you comply.
As a pet owner, it is your responsibility to keep up to date with all new requirements for pet travel. Please visit DEFRA for more information.
