Pet Travel Question: Rules for cats moving to the UK

Name: Annalyn
Number of Pets: 2
Pet Type: Cats
From: Philippines
To: UK

I have two young cats and I'd like to bring them to the UK once I get my visa. Can you tell me what the requirements are? They're only four months old now and my veterinarian friend says I should wait until they're six months old before they can receive their rabies shots. Can you help me?

Hi Annalyn,

Here are the pet import requirements for the UK, as well as information specific to your situation from the DEFRA website. The Philippines are categorized as an "unlisted country" and the rules for entering the UK are actually set to change in a few months, so we'd advise reading this information and then using it to help you plan your schedule and your cats' move.

Contact us if you have any more questions, and good luck!
