"Daisy's Relocation From Georgia to Hong Kong"

We loved how PetRelocation took care of everything! When someone is moving the last thing they want to do is worry about their pet and we most certainly did not.


Kelcey was amazing and she left no detail out. We felt very comfortable speaking with her and she was very thorough. From start to finish everything went perfect!

Monday, June 13, 2016 by PetRelocation.com Customer

Lucy and friendsWe helped Lucy (the pup in the middle) move from Hong Kong to the United States. Here's what her mom had to say about their relocation:

Relocating your beloved pet back and forth across the world is an intimidating task!

I didn't trust myself to do it alone. I am so grateful to have crossed paths with PetRelocation.

Each and every member of the team was understanding, flexible and went above and beyond to give me comfort and peace of mind during the process.

Thanks to the entire PetRelocation team...

A Simple Guide to China Pet Travel

Wednesday, May 4, 2016 by Top Pet Travel Destinations

Relocating Pets In and Out of China

Sake knows: this Shiba Inu moved from China to California.

Moving your pet to or from China can seem quite daunting at first glance due to the strict import rules and quarantine requirements.

There's a welcome "however" though: while China’s regulations are confusing, the good news is that there are several options for leaving and entering China that are safe for pets – whether quarantine is included or not.

percy and edward"Percy and Edward on Tour"

PetRelocation were the people chosen by our Dad's bank to take us from Sydney to our new place in Hong Kong.

Joe called my Mum a few months ago by phone from Austin, Texas, USA to start the ball rolling. We felt very important that he made the effort to call my Mum -- Joe and Linda really cared about us right from the word go.

We had to travel in these big crates that they even arranged to have delivered to our old house in Sydney so that we could try them out before we...

Incredible Experiences: Moving Two Pets to Hong Kong

ginny & puddin"Ginny & Puddin's Move to Hong Kong"

PetRelocation was a bit more expensive than the other firms I reached out to, but were SO much more knowledgeable about the process. Quite frankly, I couldn't afford to have the pets fly all the way to Hong Kong and then not get admitted to the country due to paperwork.

PetRelocation was essential when it came to the paperwork needed for Hong Kong. My vet did not know the rules and could not seem to fill out the paperwork correctly. My relocation specialist had...

Incredible Experiences: Jordie's Move to Hong Kong

Thursday, September 10, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

"Jordie Made It!"

When we found out that we were moving to Hong Kong, we did a lot of research about which pet company to use to help get our love, Jordie, to Hong Kong. Jordie had to go on her own and Hong Kong is known for lots of detailed paperwork.



We connected with Evelyn first. She was extremely helpful and quickly got us in touch with our Specialist, Rebecca K.

Rebecca was invaluable. She helped keep us on track with getting the right size crate and appointments with vets. She always...

Incredible Experiences: Poppet's Journey From Florida to Hong Kong

Wednesday, September 9, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer


"Best Customer Experience EVER"

Though we're pretty familiar with traveling internationally, my family decided to go with PetRelocation because moving a dog from the US to Asia sounded a bit too complicated -- even for us!

We have not regretted it for a moment. The service was excellent from the first. The quote was prompt and the total ended up less than the initial estimate, which never seems to happen!

My client care specialist was tireless, very responsive and really made the entire experience...

Our rat terrier, Stella Joe, has quite a full passport. She has traveled from Seattle->Hong Kong->Shanghai->CT->MN->Switzerland and finally back to Minnesota.

PetRelocation has arranged her transport each time and we'd only trust her in their care. From the first move to our most recent, Jon, Penney and crew have been professional, friendly and have shown genuine care towards our girl.

Are Natural Sedatives Okay for Pet Air Travel?

Wednesday, September 2, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation team,

We will be relocating from New York to Hong Kong in about a month with our year old Mini Australian Shepherd. He's rather calm in normal situations, but gets a little anxious when he is away from us and in new environments.

Apart from getting him used to his crate before the move, do you recommend any natural calmers that would help keep him relaxed? I know they don't recommend sedating with any actual drugs, but we are looking into Rescue Remedy or something similar.

Incredible Experiences: Two Cats Move to China

Thursday, August 27, 2015 by PetRelocation.com Customer

"Ni Hao, Shanghai!"

My job moved us to Shanghai in the summer of 2015. No stranger to large moves from country to country, we decided that this time around it was best to hire a company to help with getting our two cats into China.

Sarah Rosales and Mandy O'Connell were tremendously up-to-speed with the requirements and regulations for importing two cats into Shanghai and we felt very supported every step of the way.

Their team began the transition in San Diego through to L.A., to Amsterdam, then...

Incredible Experiences: Poppet's Move to Hong Kong

Thanks to Poppet's owners for sharing this arrival update with us!

Dear Penney,

When we were thinking of moving our Shi Tzu from Ft. Lauderdale to Hong Kong, we considered doing it ourselves. Fortunately, that idea lasted for about three minutes.

Without doubt, using your service was one of the best travel decisions we have made.  The comprehensive attention to detail and hand-holding was remarkable, to the point of being available when the vet was filling out the necessary forms.

Update: New Pet Import Rules for the United Arab Emirates

Friday, February 27, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

The United Arab Emirates Ministry of Environment and Water recently announced a few changes to the UAE pet import requirements. Specifically, the list of countries exempt from requiring the rabies blood test (or titer test) has changed -- some countries have been added to the list, and some (the United States and Canada, for example) have been removed.

Pets traveling from the United States and other non-exempt countries must now secure a Rabies Blood Test Certificate from an accredited lab. The...
