Pet Travel Question: Flying Cats to the UK

Name: Willow
Number of Pets: Two
Pet Type: Cats
Pet Breed: DSH

To: Ruswarp, UK

Having a hard time finding answers on how to move my cats to England. I have everything except blood tests. May I take them and have them quarantined there in a vets office? And what airlines are pet friendly?




Hi Willow,

Thanks for contacting us! These are the pet import import requirements for the UK. They became more relaxed beginning Jan. 1, 2012 -- good news for you! Basically the old quarantine rules are no longer in effect, but you will still have to secure the basic travel paperwork (health certificates, etc...).

As far as airlines, look for one with established pet-friendly policies (we often use Continental, KLM and Lufthansa).

Please let us know if you have any more questions or if you need a free quote. Good luck!
