Dog Travel to Australia From India

Friday, May 22, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Dear PetRelocation,

As per the latest Australia pet import policies, are dogs from India allowed to relocate there? What is the quarantine period and where can I quarantine my St. Bernard?

Thanks,

Garima

 

Hi Garima,

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately pets cannot travel directly to Australia from India. India is classified as a 'non-approved country' which means that you'll need to transit through a third country and complete all the required vaccines, etc. before your dog will be accepted...

I'm going to be moving to New Zealand in a year to complete my studies and I want to bring my pet rabbit with me. Is there a way and (if there is) what do I have to do?

Pet Travel to Australia: Bedding & Pet Crate Questions

Monday, May 4, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

I've just learned that you can't have kitty litter inside the cat's travel crate during transportation. This concerns me greatly, as my cat has historically suffered from a urinary tract problem.

Thanks,

Tuesday, April 21, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

I adopted my dog in Australia. Can I go to France and then easily come back to Australia with him?

Thanks,

Manon

Thank you for your question. According to the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, once a pet leaves Australia they immediately lose their Australian health status. This doesn't mean your dog is banned from coming back, but it will require a bit of work on your part to meet all the health requirements to do so smoothly.

Please take a look a this...

Hi PetRelocation,
 
We have moved to Australia and are eager to now bring our pet Pekingese here. How safe will it be for him to travel in cargo for the entire flight of around 9 hours? Which airlines can we use, as Malaysian Airlines do not take snub-nosed dogs? Also, he is aggressive to strangers and other dogs -- will this be an issue?
 
We appreciate your kind assistance and thank you...

We have just recently found out that we will be relocating back to Australia in the next couple of months. I see that there is only mention of a 190 period of quarantine, however we are needing to be there in June and that is obviously only approximately 90 days.

Is that time frame cast in stone? What if our dog has a history of Rabies vaccines from birth due to state requirements?
