Dear PetRelocation,

Please give me info on all requirement needed to move my dogs without having them in quarantine. I want to be able to pick them up as soon as they land in South Africa.

What are all the requirements and documents I need to ensure a smooth transport?

Thank you,



Hi Silvia,

Please take a look at the pet import requirements for South Africa. As long as you follow these guidelines there won't be a quarantine, so we do advise starting the preparation process several weeks before your desired move date.

Please let us know if you have questions about any of this or would like some assistance with your move. We typically assist with pick up and delivery as well as customs clearance and paperwork, so if you're feeling overwhelmed you're certainly welcome to get in touch and fill out our free quote form.

Thanks for your question, Silvia. Good luck with everything!
