    Pet transport emigrating from UK to Oz

    Hello KAG86. The whole process is taking ages. So i think if you know you are going at the end of this year or within 2 years, then get the permit and quarantine space booked and you can change it if needs be. But definitely get the blood sample back and then get the permit ready and set. If you really dont know when you will be going then get the blood sample done and hold tight.

    Importing Frenchie to Oz

    Hi Chris Exactly that, we are all waiting for Qantas to start this route again. There are lots of snub nosed dogs unable to travel right now. I think it is a case of wait and see. And keep in touch with your pet shipper as well. Hopefully Qantas will be back helping us out soon Bob

    Waiting times

    The timing of the pets' moves is key. Get the rabies vaccine and blood sampel done and this then lasts for 2 years. But the pets cant fly until 180 days after the rabies blood sample, so worth getting started sooner rather than later. Then once you know all this you need an import permit and quarantine space. Quarantine spaces have been as long as 3 months waiting list. Have a read of the Australia page on our website www.petairuk.com and the best advice i can give you is to start sooner rather than later!
  4. Are you asking the exotics department or the import quarantine department - try the import quarantine department and go with how Rusty worked around it. Only other thing i can think is to contact TICA in UK and see if you can get any pedigree papers at all that way.

    PetAir UK - Pet Travel Service

    Hi Sorry, We cant. We would use Jetpets or have a search around. Safe travels
  6. Hi Jessica The advice from Rusty is really helpful. Open communication with the Australia quarantine department and ask them. It may be that you register your cat as a domestic short hair, but being up front saves so many dramas down the line. Just bear in mind also that if the pets transit in Singapore then they are funny about issuing transit permits for Bengal cats as well!

    Flying my cat back again - to Australia

    Hi Jo. Sorry for the late reply. 9 years old is no age for a cat, so as long as he is fit and well then he will fly just fine and do quarantine just fine - he will sulk for sure, but that is the way cats are As long as the vets have said he is fit and healthy. You should read this for some background https://www.petairuk.com/destinations/taking-pets-to-australasia/australia/taking-cats-to-australia/

    Pet transport emigrating from UK to Oz

    Hi Nebsy, i think you may have emailed us already. First thing - get your pets a rabies vaccine asap - once that is done you have a bit of time to get everything sorted out, but that is the very first move. Call your vets as soon as you can

    Anyone bought their boxer dog over?

    Hi. No airlines will fly a boxer from UK to Australia at the moment. There is another thread on this somewhere. Another shipper is getting snub nosed dogs to Australia but the route is dicey and if it goes wrong then the pets are stuck in UAE for 6 months, so we are steering clear of it at the moment. QANTAS is the best bet when they start flying again.

    anyone shipped 2 cats?

    Hi. I have not heard of cargolution, but they look like they are based in Canada. we can fly pets to Canada but not from Canada. If you want a journey from Canada then you need to check out www.ipata.org and you ca find a local shipper there.

    Australia quarantine update

    Hi. Yes pets are still flying to Australia ok. It is a bit trickier than the "good old days", but still do-able. There is another route for snub nosed dogs to get to Australia, but it is not without its risks, which is why we as a business are trying not to offer it. Other shippers are though. You fly your snub nosed dog to Abu Dhabi with Etihad. They they are cleared here and an agent in UAE prepares docs for them to travel on to Australia. I know some pet shave gone on this route. The risk is that UAE is currently not approved by the Australians, so if anything happens with the flights and/or paperwork then your pets will be there longer than 24 hours which means the Australians wont accept the pets and they may need to return to UK. All in all, at this time of planes and schedules changing, it just seems very worrying to me. But it is being done for sure. The safest way is to wait for QANTAS to start up again and go with them, but who knows when that may be - likely 2022. Get the rabies vaccines done now and get the rabies blood sample done now so it is done and set - both must be done by an OV, so check with your vets. and wait and see how things move over the next 3-6 months.
