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!

Hi, good evening.Do you know if dogs exported from Australia to the Neatherlands require any kind of quarentine? And then the other way around, bringing a dog back from the Neatherlands to Australia?I might have to take a 1 year job and I'm not sure if taking the dog with us to the Neatherlands is the best way to move.Thanks a lot for your help.Regards Pablo

Hi Pablo, thanks for your question! No, pets do not require quarantine upon arrival in the Netherlands from Australia. Please take a look at the pet import requirements for the Netherlands here.

As for going back to Australia, there will be a 10 night quarantine upon arrival and the pre-export requirements are much more strenuous. Please take a look here for more information.
