Dear PetRelocation,

Can I bring my dog directly from Turkey to Australia without going through a third country and do all vaccinations in Australia?

Thank you.

Regards,
Shaun

 

Hi Shaun,

Thanks for your question. Taking a look at the official pet import requirements for Australia shows that Turkey is considered a "non-approved" country, so at this time you will be unable to bring your dog directly into Australia.

Though Australia has recently loosened its quarantine rules (the standard quarantine time is now 10 days instead of 30), they still have strict country-to-country rules in the interest of maintaining rabies-free status. To move your dog, you'll need to spend time in a third country and complete various vaccine requirements. You'll find a step-by-step guide on the Australia Department of Agriculture website.

Please contact us if you have questions about this or if you think you'd like some help with your upcoming move. We'd be happy to assist you.

Thanks again for reaching out, and good luck with your pet travels!
