Do dogs have to be quarantined to move to the Netherlands?

Hi PetRelocation,

Do my dogs have to be quarantined to move to the Netherlands from the United States?

Hi Angela,

Thanks for your question! No, pets will not face quarantine upon arrival in the Netherlands if you've followed all the import rules correctly. Please take a look at those rules here and learn more about your safe pet shipping options in general.
Note that your dog will need a microchip, an up-to-date rabies vaccine and certificate, and an EU Health Certificate, among other things. We also recommend traveling within five days of your pet if possible in order to avoid this being a "commercial move."
Hope this helps! If you're interested in hiring some assistance with this move, you're welcome to contact us for a consultation.
Good luck and happy traveling!

Contact PetRelocation if you're looking for assistance with your upcoming pet move.
