Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Cane Corso
To: Dubai, UAE
We are a family who is moving to Dubai for minimum of a period of years and would like to import our 5-year-old dog. The dog has been with us since he was a puppy (3 months old), he is neutered, has all necessary vaccines and is well socialized.
Can you please advise what the regulations and costs are to make sure he has a smooth relocation to Dubai? We don't have a residence visa yet, but we expect to have it around January 2015.
Pleased to hear your answers and thanks in advance.
Sure, we'd be happy to provide some information. Please start by taking a look at the pet import requirements for the UAE. Your dog will need to be microchipped (if not already), vaccinated against rabies, and the correct permits/health documents must be attained.
We recommend choosing a pet-friendly airline and buying an airline-approved travel crate based on your dog's measurements.
If you think you'd like some assistance and want to find out about our door-to-door services, please fill out our free quote form. First-time pet travelers often find it helpful to look over these frequently asked pet travel questions -- relocating with a pet can be an overwhelming undertaking and it's normal to feel uncertain at first.
Finally, here is some information about living with pets in the UAE. The conditions will likely be pretty different than what you're used to in Denmark, and we advise all of our clients to acquaint themselves with the customs, cultural differences, etc. before they move with a pet.
Hope this helps -- please let us know if we can be of further service. Either way, good luck and enjoy your time in Dubai!
