What papers will my pet need?
Under the EU pet movement system, all pet dogs, cats and ferrets moving between EU Member States must meet the same animal health rules. All pets travelling between the Republic of Ireland and the UK or Continental Europe and between the UK and Continental Europe must be micro chipped, vaccinated against rabies and accompanied by a pet passport.
Please note it is your responsibility to provide all necessary documents and make all arrangements including where necessary quarantine, to satisfy all legal requirements.
For more information, visit the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) at www.defra.gov.uk or by calling 0870 241 1710.
You can find more information about the changes made to pet travel implemented on 29th December 2014 by clicking the following link - EU Pet Travel Scheme.
Please note: The government regulations for travelling with a pet from Britain to any EU country will change when the UK leaves the EU. Pet owners should contact a vet at least 4 months before travelling. The latest information on the pet passport scheme can be found on the DEFRA website
