Taking your pet overseas – export preparation
Preparation for export usually requires a combination of:
- blood testing to confirm immunity or infection status with respect to specific parasites
- preventative treatments
- certification that your pet is fit to fly.
Preparation requirements for export varies between countries and it is very important to be sure what treatments or certifications your pet may need prior to making an appointment. We refer you to the Australia Government website for more detailed information. Please remember that the Australian government does not guarantee that the information on this site is correct and the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service suggests you make contact with the country you are traveling to in order to confirm the exact requirements your pet will need to fullfil. Contact the embassy or high commission of the relevant country. Preparation of your pet may take several months so we suggest you investigate requirements earlier rather than later!
Your pet’s transport requirement can be quite complex and if you are traveling at the same time or prior to their departure, things can get quite complicated! Jet Pets is an excellent animal transport company who will be able to assist you in getting your pet to their new home as easily as possible.
