Changes to the EU Pet Travel Scheme Beginning Dec. 2014

Planning to travel to the EU with a pet in the next few months? This news update is for you. It has been announced that on Dec. 29, 2014, a few changes to the EU Pet Travel Scheme will go into effect.

It looks like the primary requirements will stay the same and if you already have a pet passport you don't need a new one, but among other adjustments, there is now a new minimum age for rabies vaccinations and pet owners must travel into the country within five days of their pet's arrival.

Read the full document below to find out if these changes will affect you and your future pet travels to the EU, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us to speak to a Specialist.

UPDATE: Here is a Gov.UK article published Nov. 14, 2014 with additional information about these changes.
