Pet Travel Question: Moving Rabbits to the UK

Name: Martine
Number of Pets: Two
Pet Type: Rabbits
From: Mexico
To: United Kingdom

What injections, certificates, etc. do my rabbits need for this trip? Do I need to do anything special with them before I go?


Hello Martine,

Shipping pets to the UK is trickier than many other countries, and moving a rabbit there from Mexico may require you to meet a quarantine requirement. Find out more details from the UK Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs.

Be aware that the UK is relaxing their pet import rules beginning Jan. 1, 2012, so we'd recommend double checking the regulations regarding rabbits before you go because they might change as well. Read more on our blog about the UK PETS changes and take a look at a few tips for flying with rabbits, also. Please contact us if you have more questions, and good luck!
