I moved my dog from Pakistan to Spain a week ago. All the required testing to meet European requirements was achieved to do this - the rabies vaccine was carried out by an approved laboratory in the UK.
I want to eventually move her home to Australia. Given that her origin is Pakistan, what are the requirements now for her length of stay in Spain and her activity in Spain so that I can apply for her to go to Australia?
Great question. Your dog will need to stay in Spain for at least six months before becoming eligible to move to Australia, and you'll need to carefully follow the steps as they're outlined by the Australian Government Department of Agriculture. The website has a drop-down tool listing the dates that each step of the process should be carried out based on your desired departure date.
