Please advise what is required before my cat can travel from Papua New Guinea to Australia.
Thanks for your inquiry! Australia is a rabies-free country with fairly strict import requirements, however you will be able to bring your cat there by following the stated rules.
Papua New Guinea is a “Category 2” country, so you'll need to use the Australia Department of Agriculture website to determine the timeline of pre-import steps and follow those carefully. Upon arrival, your cat will need to undergo a 10-day quarantine, which you can also find out more about on the official site.
Many pet owners understandably feel stressed out by the idea of quarantine and international pet travel in general, but the more you learn about the process, the more comfortable you'll hopefully feel. Please take a look at these common pet travel questions, these cat crate-training tips, and these pet travel experiences straight from pet owners who have gone through the process already.
