Getting a Head Start on Dog Travel to Barbados

Name: Lynn
Number of Pets: One
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Jack Russell
From: UK
To: Barbados

Hello. We are emigrating to Barbados in two years time and will be taking Digger with us. Could you please let me know the procedure I have to go through to make this happen? I assume that as the UK is rabies free, there is no quarantine in Barbados and we can just fly Digger on our flight.

I would be grateful if you could provide me with any information and advice.

Thank you,



Hi Lynn,

Thanks for your question. By the way, we applaud the fact that you're getting a head start on your travel plans -- you can't start too early!

Take a look at the basic pet import requirements for Barbados... Among other things, you'll need to secure an import permit for Digger and have a valid rabies vaccination certificate. Coming from the UK, it should be a pretty straightforward process.

Since you do have some time before you go, you should probably bookmark the Barbados Ministry of Agriculture website and check it again closer to your day of departure. Pet import rules can change from time to time, so you'll want to keep an eye out for any policy adjustments that may arise between now and then.

Please let us know if you have any more questions. Hope the move goes well!
