Do I have to wait six months if I am in the process of getting my cats shots etc.? What is the United States to United Kingdom pet import process?




Hi Jo,

Thank you for the question. Please take a look at the pet import procedures for the UK. As you'll see, the six month quarantine period is not longer in place (here's more about the updated EU pet import requirements), but you still need to follow the given timeline regarding the microchip implantation and the rabies vaccine, etc.

Please contact us if you have any questions about moving your cat to London, and if you're interested in our door-to-door services, you can fill out our free quote form. Good luck with everything!
