Pet Travel Question: Moving a Dog to Dubai

Name: Nadine
From: Lebanon
To: Dubai
Pets: Yorkshire Terrier

Is it possible to carry my dog with me on the plane? I would be worried about leaving her alone. Looking forward to hearing from you!


Hello Nadine,

First, take a look at the pet import requirements for Dubai for an idea of the steps you'll need to take to get move your dog safely to the UAE. As far as whether or not you can bring your dog in the cabin, it depends on the rules of the airline you're flying with (we recommend being selective and choosing a pet-friendly airline). Be aware, also, that though many travelers are nervous about flying their pets in the cargo area, pets often have a better traveling experience when they're not subjected to the noise and commotion of the cabin.

Please contact us if you have any more questions or concerns, and good luck to you!
