Pet Travel Question: Can Birds be Brought to Australia?
Number of Pets: 20
Pet Type: Racing Pigeons
From: South Africa
Do you know if it possible to take racing pigeons over to Australia, or is this too much of a health risk?
Thanks for your question. Unfortunately it doesn't seem that racing pigeons may be brought to Australia from South Africa at this time. Australia has strict import rules when it comes to bringing animals into the country; currently only certain species of birds may be imported, and they may only be admitted from New Zealand.
Please take a look at the animal import regulations via the official Australian Government website, and feel free to contact PetRelocation if you have any other questions.
Good luck with everything!
