Pet Travel From South Africa to England

Good Day,

Would you be able to give me a rough indication of what it would cost to take our dogs with us to England? What are the requirements and is there a quarantine period?




Hi Marco,

Thank you for your inquiry, we'd be happy to help!

As we note in our recent UK Pet Travel Spotlight Series, one of the first things you'll want to do is get acquainted with the pet import requirements for pets coming from South Africa. According to the official UK government website, South Africa is an "unlisted" country so you'll need to follow the rules outlined here for a smooth entry. If all rules are followed correctly, your dogs will not need to fulfill a quarantine period.

As for price, this will ultimately depend on a few factors but for an idea of what to expect you can take a look at these typical pet travel costs.
