Advice for Planning a Military Move to Germany & The UK

Name: Rebecca
Number of Pets: 2
Pet Type: dog and cat
Pet Breed: Beagle and Persian mix
From: USA
To: Germany then onto UK

My husband is US military and we got orders to the UK. We move in less than a month and we want to fly our dog and cat at a later date (around Dec. this year) to Germany with my mother-in-law, then drive them into the UK from there. Any information on how to do this would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!



Hi Rebecca,

Thanks for your question. For this situation, you'll want to prepare your pets to move to Germany by following these import requirements. Be aware that it's perfectly common for pets and owners to fly at different times -- most of the pets we move aren't on the same flight as their people.

Next, you'll want to take a look at the pet import requirements for the UK to be sure you'll have them ready to cross the border when you're ready to bring them home.

Please let us know if you have any questions about what this process will entail. We'd be happy to assist -- just fill out our free quote form if you'd like to find out more about our services. Thanks again for contacting us, and good luck with your upcoming move!
