Pet Travel Question: Parrot Travel to Dubai

Name: Krichel
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Parrot
Pet Breed: Gray Parrot
From: Algeria
To: Dubai

Can my parrot travel with me by air? If yes, what's the procedure? I fear that Dubai Customs will impose a quarantine.

Thanks for the answer,

Hi Krichel,

Thanks for the question! Take a look at our guide for importing and exporting exotic pets, as it will direct you to some helpful resources regarding bird travel. You can also read about the process of flying with birds on our blog, as this is a topic that's admittedly tricky.

In regards to moving pets to Dubai, it's always a good idea to check with the UAE Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries before you go for the most up-to-date information. In general, importing birds requires securing a transit permit, and birds from countries affected by avian flu cannot be imported.

Good luck with everything, and please contact us if you'd like some help handling your bird move!
