Pet Travel Question: Rabbits to New Zealand?

Name: Monica
Number of Pets: 2
Pet Type: Rabbits
From: Italy
To: New Zealand

I have two pet rabbits that I'd like to bring with me to New Zealand. Will this be possible to do?




Hi Monica,

According to the official New Zealand import standards, rabbits may only be imported from Australia (and rabbits from Italy cannot be taken to Australia to serve out a waiting period beforehand, unfortunately). As you can see, New Zealand's rabies-free status means it's one of the more restrictive countries out there when it comes to importing pets.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! Please contact us if you have any more questions, good luck, and thanks for checking in.
