    Hiya Well done you for planning early. Dont do anything quite yet. Have a read of this page on our website and it will outline things a bit better. When you are in the zone where you are around 18 months out then you need to start the chip/rabies vaccine/rabies blood sample process. But at the moment just investigating and checking the process out is perfect. https://www.petairuk.com/destinations/taking-pets-to-australasia/australia/taking-dogs-to-australia/ Bob

    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!
  6. 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.

    Hi Sorry, We cant. We would use Jetpets or have a search around. Safe travels
  8. 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/

    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.
