Entry of animals into
Things to consider when transporting pets to England:
In the Brexit aftermath, England is no longer part of the EU, so similar regulations apply to entry and exit as to third countries. But don't worry: If you want to travel from an EU country to a non-EU country with your pet, we won't leave you alone in the legal jungle. Specializing in pet transports to all countries of the European Union and third countries, we keep track of the applicable regulations for all transports.
Within the EU, entry with pets is generally not a problem. But even outside the European Union it is very feasible, with a few specifications to be taken into account.
In general, the following applies to dog transport: the animals must be at least six months old and a maximum of 5 dogs may be transported (exception: participation in competitions, exhibitions or sporting events with a written declaration). For more detailed information, please visit the official .
When traveling from the EU to non-EU countries, you should consider these points for accompanying pets such as dogs, cats, ferrets and other animals (in this order):
> The EU pet passport issued in the EU is recognized and must be carried along when transporting the animal.
> The animal must be microchipped.
> The animal must be vaccinated against rabies (primary vaccination must have been received 21 days prior to the importation, booster vaccinations are valid as long as the prescribed interval has been observed).
> Dogs must have had a tapeworm treatment 24 hours before departure or a maximum of 5 days before entry.
> All prescribed steps must be documented in the EU pet passport for international animal transport.
> When leaving/returning to the EU, you only need your pet's pet ID card to transport your pet.

I have sent a dog to the United States twice using PetAir ...
... once in August 2016 and again now in January 2018. The service was excellent both times: every question has been answered promptly and competently, I have received all the relevant data (ﬂight numbers etc.) within 24 hours and of all the annoying paperwork, I have only had to deal with the absolutely necessary. The care of the dogs during the transportation was to the point. Given my experience, I can only recommend PetAir.

We set up our shipment for a military move from Germany ...
... back to the US. The team was responsive, professional, and worked with us to find a good price option on multiple carriers. When we showed up with our dogs and crates, they provided a larger one free of charge based on their visual check of our dog’s size inside the crate being a bit snug for the airline we were using. The front office was kind and friendly!

Send animals... only with PetAir.
Everything uncomplicated and very good advice.
I used Pet Air to ship my fur baby to New Zealand in November ...
... and I could not be any happier with the great service I received. I had contacted a few pet freight companies and Pet Air offered the most competitive, reasonable quote providing the same flight and schedule. Vineet dealt with my enquiry from the beginning to the end and he was always very professional, helpful, informative, quick, going above and beyond to make sure everything is in order. My boy has made it to Auckland sound and safe and will be released from Quarantine tomorrow! Thank you so much Pet Air
