There’s no navigating around it – taking your pet travelling by air away from UK, whether on a quick holiday or even more permanently, is expensive, time-consuming and could be complicated.
There are always a host of regulations which have to be followed, both country and airline specific, and they frequently change.
In general, the farther away or maybe more exotic your destination, the more work is necessary to meet import regulations, veterinary requirements and to navigate through the neighborhood rules.
Our job at Pets by Plane is to help you find the right flights (many airlines will not carry snub-nosed breeds of dogs and cats) navigate the guidelines and regulations, advise on the best travel kennel and be sure that your pet can travel comfortably, securely and as economically as possible.

The first faltering step to ready your dog, cat or ferret to enter the United Kingdom is to own your pet microchipped by having an ISO 11784/11785 compliant 15 digit pet microchip.
If your pet currently features a microchip that is not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, you then have 3 choices:
You will bring your personal microchip scanner.
You can contact the officials at the Border Inspection Post where you’ll enter the UK and inquire concerning whether they’ve scanners that can read your pet’s chip.
If your pet’s current microchip can nevertheless be read, your veterinarian can implant compliant chip. The amount and implant dates of both microchips must be documented on the EU Health Certificate (see step #5).
A tattoo is a suitable type of identification so long as it was handed just before July 3, 2011, is actually visible and your pet was vaccinated for rabies following the tattoo was applied.
All dogs, cats and ferrets must have evidence of a current rabies vaccination administered following a microchip was implanted to enter the United Kingdom.
The first rabies vaccination following the microchip is implanted is known as the principal vaccination and it must be a one year vaccine. If your pet’s previous vaccination had expired before being revaccinated, the next vaccination becomes the primary vaccination and additionally, it should be a 12 months vaccine.
All vaccinations that are administered after the principal vaccination are called booster vaccinations.
If your pet is entering the United Kingdom from the rabies-free (click here) or rabies-controlled country (click here), the principal rabies vaccination must be administered no earlier than 21 days before entering the United Kingdom.
There’s no waiting period after booster vaccinations so long as:
the previous vaccination was administered after a microchip was implanted AND
the last vaccination hadn’t expired once the booster was given.
The United Kingdom does honor the 3 year rabies vaccination for dogs, cats and ferrets; however, it will only be administered as an enhancement, much less a key vaccination. You are able to confer with your veterinarian about this.
Once your pet has entered the United Kingdom, a 21 day waiting period isn’t needed for subsequent visits, provided rabies boosters are kept updated, and the other entry requirements are met.
If your pet is entering the United Kingdom from a high-rabies country, it must await no less than 30 days after vaccination before finding a rabies titer test (see step #3).
General Information About Exporting Pets
Once you request a pet export quotation we quote for several costs to transport your pet by air to the named destination airport. If you are delivering your pet to your premises near Heathrow it must arrive no less than five hours ahead of the flight. Collections from you (if required) will undoubtedly be by arrangement, usually on the day before departure.
There may however be additional charges payable at the airport of destination to cover costs for such items as airline import handling, customs clearance and veterinary charges. As these fees are payable in country of destination, and we are struggling to pay them in your behalf, so these charges aren’t within the quote (but we will advise you of this).
Costs are influenced by the size/weight of the animal(s) to be exported, any extra services (such as UK transportation, kenneling, and veterinary certification), flight time and the destination. In case of dogs, the box size provided is on the basis of the measurements directed at us. Should these measurements be incorrect we accept no responsibility for just about any delay or extra costs involved as a result.
Animals must certanly be shipped in containers developed to IATA specifications which are the correct size for them i.e. they have to be large enough for the animal to operate without touching the the top of box, take a nap comfortably and manage to turn round within the box. There must also be a fixed water container inside the container with a way of filling it from the surface (funnel).
In case you wish to utilise our services we would need to have written confirmation with payment as soon as possible and at least 28 days beforehand. We will also demand a contact Name, Address and Telephone Number in the country of destination (the airline will need to ring beforehand to ensure acceptance).
You might be in a position to take your pet as excess baggage, which will mean booking direct with passenger reservations. This might be a cheaper option (please note that some airlines cannot take livestock and that there may be restrictions such as for instance standby status with regards to the airline and the route). However should the animal(s) be a particularly large shipment (in Airline terms) or coping with the animal(s) at once as the move be particularly difficult then we are able to offer the cargo option along with other services including collection, kenneling and Export Health Certification.
With info on the measurements of the animal(s) we can build transit kennels to fit. Kennels can be either acquired from us or delivered to any U.K. Airport to coincide with your register time or be brought to your home.
Long lasting mode of travel, pets will go into the cargo hold of the aircraft. That is heated and pressurised to the exact same extent while the passenger cabin. The animals are loaded to the hold approximately around 30 minutes before departure (however the airline requires they are delivered for them 4 hours before the flight) and are unloaded at another end usually within half an hour of the plane landing. Once the documents can be found the animals may be cleared through customs. The handling/vet fees are then payable to the Import Shed Operator where point the animals can be collected and taken home.
Transporting your dog to USA
Relocate your puppy to USA having an IPATA registered and approved USA dog shipper such as for instance Airsupply shippping (passportforpets.co.uk). You realize your pet utilizes you to make the best decisions about their welfare and we follow the strict operating code laid down by IPATA. These rules are designed to ensure your pet isn’t unduly stressed by the travel and which they get to the US in good condition. However, we have been shipping dogs to the USA for over 40 years and we actually rise above IPATA guidelines because we wish both happy pets AND owners! Our pet shipping business continues to expand and we could only achieve this through happy customers who recommend our services to others.
The good thing about shipping your dog to the USA from a Rabies free country or Rabies controlled Country such as the UK is that there surely is no quarantine requirement as long as your pet has been doing the UK for 6 months or more. However, your pet will need to have documented evidence of being vaccinated against rabies otherwise this may result in entry delays because you will soon be asked to sign a Confinement Agreement (this basically says you will get your pet vaccinated and then confine them for at the least 30 days after treatment). If you’re importing a puppy that’s too young (usually under 6 months of age) to possess had the rabies vaccination then you definitely will be needing a Confinement Agreement, see: USA CDC Dog Confinement Agreements for more details. Whilst the CDC (US authority on pet imports) does not require your dog to truly have a certificate of overall health MOST AIRLINES DO REQUIRE THIS before they’ll alow your pet to board an aircraft.
Generally, all dogs should be imported or exported through among the
Banned Breeds of Dogs

Also some forms of American Bulldogs have already been found to be Pit Bulls. It is illegal to enter or transit the UK with any of these breeds or their mixes.
Dogs can only just be considered for exemption from UK Dangerous Dog Laws through the courts. Pet owners cannot apply fo exemption when importing their dogs.Only dogs which can be time for the UK after being placed on the exemption list can enter.
