Pet Travel Checklist

Family vacations and long-term travel no longer need to exclude the family dog or cat. Traveling with pets can be similar to traveling with children, with some preparation and planning.

Please see below for a small guide to help make things easier for both yourself, and your pet.

Your pets will need;

  • ISO Standard Microchip (Your pet must be microchipped before it’s vaccinated against rabies. The vaccination won’t count for travel if your pet isn’t microchipped first)
  • Rabies Vaccine – EU and listed countries
  • Rabies Vaccine and blood test – Unlisted countries
  • UK or EU issued Pet Passport (New style if issued after 29th Dec 2014)
  • Third Country Official Certificate – if entering the EU or UK from a listed or an unlisted non-EU Country
  • Tapeworm -This applies to dogs only before entering the UK
  • Declaration – Confirming non sale or transfer of ownership
