Pet Travel Question: Moving Pets to Australia

Name: Romy
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: German Pointer
From: Malta, Europe
To: Adelaide, Australia

We will be relocating to Adelaide Australia in a few months and will bring our dog with us. I guess what I need to know is a step by step procedure of what I need to do to ensue a smooth import for our dog. Or if you can advise any pet relocation services in Malta that take care of all that, would be helpful.




Hi Romy,

Thank you for the question. Going to Australia with a dog does require several steps, as Australia is a rabies-free country that imposes a quarantine on arriving pets. Here's the full run-down of Australia pet import requirements. Please take a look and let us know if you have any questions.

If you're looking to hire some help in Malta, check out to locate a pet shipper in your area. You're also welcome to fill out our free quote form if you're interested in our door-to-door services.

Hopefully this helps, and please let us know if you have any more questions. Good luck with the move!
