Hi PetRelocation,

I'm just wondering what I need to do documentation-wise to ensure Willie gets to move to the US from London as we corporate relocate back home. Also, I'm clueless about how to physically move him. Does he go under the seat, in a luggage/pet area or what?

Thanks! Look forward to talking with you. Have a good day!

Hi PetRelocation,

I would like to find out how I can take my cats home when I move back to the UK - no date set yet but just finding out information now for the future. What are the requirements before leaving Cambodia and upon arrival in the UK?

Also, I've seen that some airlines allow pets in the cabin as long as their carriers can fit under the seat. How does that work in terms of them going to the toilet, on a 10+ hour...

Thankfully, after a few days of endless online research we decided to proceed with PetRelocation and we are so glad we did! Maegan and...

When my husband, a British citizen, and me, an American citizen, were planning my move to the UK, we looked at several pet relocation services.
