Pet Travel Question: Moving a Dog from China to Australia

Name: Tony
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Dalmatian
From: Shanghai, China
To: Brisbane, Australia

What are the regulations regarding transfer from China (Shanghai) to Australia? My dog has had all the necessary injections and has had the same vet from when she was born. She is in excellent health.


Hi Tony,

Thanks for question! Australia isn't the easiest place to import a pet, so you'll want to start your move preparations as soon as you can. To get right to the point, China is not an AQIS approved country, which means you'll have to take your dog somewhere else before you can go to Australia. Take a look at the pet import requirements for Australia, peruse the AQIS website to find out which countries are approved, and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or if you'd like some help with your move. Good luck with everything!
