Pet Travel Question: Returning Pets to New Zealand

Name: Lyn
Number of Pets: Two
Pet Type: Dogs
Pet Breed: Dachshund and Lab
From: New Zealand
To: Indonesia

We are moving soon to Indonesia (Java) for two years. We would like to bring our dogs with us. We have no problem getting them to Indonesia - the problem is bringing them back. We have heard we will have to send them to Singapore for six months before we can bring them back. Is this true? Will they be in quarantine in Singapore? Is there another way around this?

Hi Lyn,

Thanks for the question! First review the pet import requirements for New Zealand -- you're right that this is a tougher country to enter, and quarantine rules will come into play. It may also help to read the true story of a pet move to Australia in order to get a better idea of how a process like this works from start to finish.

Let us know if you have any questions about these regulations, Lyn! We'd be happy to help you with your move.

Good luck with everything!
