Pet Travel Question: Moving from Malaysia to New Zealand

Hi PetRelocation,

I will be taking my pets from Penang or Kuala Lumpur to Auckland, New Zealand. I live in Alor Seta, Kedah, Malaysia and I'm wondering who I can hire and what I need to do.


Hi Annelise,

Thank you for contacting us! To start, you can review the pet import requirements for New Zealand to help you plan your upcoming move (note that pets entering New Zealand will be subject to a quarantine).

If you're interested in a door-to-door pet relocation service, you're welcome to contact us for an online consultation to learn more about how we transport cats internationally.

Another great source to refer to is the official New Zealand website regarding imports. Since you're coming from Malaysia, there will probably be different import requirements than those listed in the link above.

Good luck, and we look forward to hearing from you about any questions you have!

Relocating to New Zealand from Kuala Lumpur. I wonder what I must do before moving to New Zealand. My dog is just 2.5 yrs old with 2.5kg only.

Hi Sebastian, We recommend referring to the official New Zealand pet import requirements here: Typically pets need to undergo a variety of requirements before moving and then spend 10 days in quarantine upon arrival. Hope this helps and let us know if you have any questions!
