When my family and I found out we were going to be moving to Germany, we had to decide how we were going to get our dog Maya there.

I first had tried another company, but that would have been a multi-stop trip, which would have given her over 24 hours in her kennel.

We didn't want that for her, so I had talked to a friend about how she got her dogs shipped and she told me about PetRelocation.

Is Bird Travel to Australia a Possibility?

Hi PetRelocation,

Is it possible to take my pet cockatoo with me to Papua New Guinea? It has CITES papers and came with me from Australia three years ago to Germany. This was all done legally, but I believe I cannot legally bring her back to Australia.

Or, if you know a way to ship my bird to Australia that would be the best option (otherwise the closest to the Australian border that I could take her), please let me know.

Looking forward to your answer.
