Pet Travel Question: Moving Birds to the UK

Hi PetRelocation,

Can you let me know what is the correct procedure for bringing in pets from the Netherlands? What documents will I need, etc.?

Thank You,



Hi Imran,

Thanks for contacting us with your question. Moving birds is a little trickier than moving other dogs and cats, so it's important to research carefully and double check the information you find.

Here are a few resources that may help you -- the pet import requirements for the UK as well as bird-specific information. Finally, take a look at our blog to find more bird shipping tips.

Please contact us if you have any more questions, and good luck with everything!
