Transporting Your Pet To Australia
|Passportforpets have been shipping pets to Australia for over 2 decades and we will be happy to answer all your questions or concerns. If you would like to know more about our services and how we operate, please do contact us and we'll do our best to assist you. If you decide to go ahead with transporting your pet then we can make all the necessary arrangements on your behalf including the required vaccinations and veterinary inspections.|
Pets being shipped from Rabies Controlled Countries such as Cyprus, Ireland, Malta, Sweden, Taiwan and the UK are quarantined for 10 days.
Animals must be shipped in IATA approved transit kennels that allow the animal to stand up without touching the top of the box, lie down and turn around. It is a requirement that dogs are shipped as manifest cargo and not as excess baggage. There are only two Quarantine units in Australia - based in Melbourne and Sydney (Sydney due to be closed from the end of 2015) - so animals must enter Australia at one of these airports. If you are unable to collect your pet or pets after the quarantine period then you will need to make local arrangements for movement of pets to other cities in Australia. The quarantine management will probably be able to help, as this is not an unusual request.
|It is always difficult leaving your pet in quarantine but they are well looked after and you can look forward to a very happy reunion after the 10 days are up.|
