Pet Travel Question: Layovers and Pet Flights to Asia

Thursday, December 1, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Pet Friendly Airlines for Pet Travel to Asia

 

Hi PetRelocation,

Do you recommend booking a long (21 hrs) direct flight for a nervous dog or is it better to book a layover?

Do you have an airline you recommend that flies US to Asia?

-Risha


Great question, Risha! It might surprise some people, but we do generally recommend booking a layover in order to give pets a chance to stretch their legs and spend some time outside the travel crate. Though it will make the overall trip a bit longer, we believe...

Shipping Birds: Feathers, Beaks and a Whole Lotta Paperwork

Tuesday, October 25, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Cockatiel No one ever said pet shipping was easy, and when it comes to shipping birds, things can definitely get pretty tricky. The amount of paperwork involved in flying a feathered friend overseas is usually quite extensive. 

We recently moved Pipi, a very cute cockatiel, from New York City to Nagoya, Japan. His owners were thrilled to see him, and sent us this note shortly after he arrived:

Pipi has arrived 10 minutes ago. Now he is eating food and looks so happy. My son is so excited to see him. Of...

Nina was absolutely the best. This has been the dogs' fourth international move and by far the least stressful one for all of us despite it also having been their longest distance move yet.

She knew everything and was on top of everything and was very calm and professional and reassuring.

I highly commend her and we will recommend your company to any of our friends and family who need to move their beloved pets.

How to Manage Dog Travel to Australia From China

Wednesday, June 15, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi,

I am inquiring on behalf of my daughter, who is living with her dog in Singapore. She is going with her dog for two years to Ningbo, China, and from there she will go to Adelaide, Australia.

Thanks,

Bernett

Singapore Pet Travel Question: Breed Bans and Import Rules

Monday, May 2, 2016 by Pet Travel Questions

Dear Sir or Madam,

Next year we'll probably move from Belgium to Singapore, but my research indicated that some breeds are forbidden. Since two of my dogs are strays, they can't be categorized under a certain breed (they are from Serbia and Greece but are completely checked, microchipped, etc. Everything is correct).

Do you think this might be a problem?

Kind Regards,
Valerie
