Hi PetRelocation,

My partner and I are looking at getting two ferrets, but we are very conscious that we are hoping to move to Japan for a year or so in the next few years.

Could you tell me if it is possible to take ferrets with you to Japan from the UK and vice versa? And also what kinds of costs are involved if this is possible?

Many thanks,

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

Pet Air Travel: "Do I Need a Pet Passport?"

Monday, May 11, 2015 by Pet Travel Questions

Hi PetRelocation,

I am trying to bring a puppy that I rescued back to the United States. I have a 4 hour layover in France. Do I need to have an EU pet passport for my dog if I am just having a layover in France and I do not exit the airport?

Thank you,
