Planning Cat Travel to New Zealand

catAdvice for Cat Transport to New Zealand

Dear PetRelocation,

Where can I find an accurate guideline for bringing my cat to Auckland with me in March?




Hi Andrea,

Thanks for the question! Please take a look at the New Zealand pet import requirements on our website and also on the official New Zealand government website. As a rabies-free island nation, New Zealand does require quite a bit of planning to bring a pet into the country, so it's a good idea to start the process early.

Because it's a multi-step process, many pet owners decide to hire assistance with their moves. If you'd like to find out more about our door-to-door services, you're welcome to fill out our online consultation form. You can also read a few true stories of recent pet moves to find out what you might be able to expect; if you'd like a New Zealand story, here is one about Wednesday the cat, whose move we planned a few months ago.

This should help you get started, but we certainly understand if you have more questions! Let us know if we can be of further assistance, and good luck with your cat's relocation to Auckland.
