Dear PetRelocation,

What are the travel requirements for my dog if we go from Canada to London?

Thank you,


Hi Connie,

Thanks for the question, we'd be glad to offer a few tips. First, take a look at the pet import requirements for the UK. As you can see, they used to be pretty strict (there was a 180-day quarantine in place) but now they are more relaxed. You still need to attend to several important details, but you won't need to worry about a quarantine.

Canada is an approved non-EU country, so your dog needs a microchip, a rabies vaccine (administered after the microchip is implanted), a vet health certificate, and you must wait at least 21 days from the day of vaccination before traveling.

If you have questions about these requirements and would like some help with your move, please contact us for a free quote. We also invite you to check out our Facebook to meet some of the pets we've moved recently. Lots of dogs and cats go to the UK!

Thanks again for submitting a question, and good luck with everything.
