Dear PetRelocation,

We would like to inquire about the process of moving our pets to South Africa. Please kindly advise.

Thank you,



Hi Erika,

Thanks for your question. We've helped many pets move to South Africa from various places around the world and would be happy to provide some information. To begin, please take a look at the import requirements for South Africa for an idea of the steps you'll need to take.

Aside from these details, you'll also want to book your dogs' flight with a pet friendly airline (we often use airlines like KLM and Lufthansa, who have established pet policies and good records of safety). You also need to make sure your dogs have the correct travel crates and are able to acclimate to them before the move if they're not used to traveling.

For peace of mind, it helps to read the stories of pet owners who have moved their pets internationally. Pet travel can be overwhelming at first, but you'll see that thousands of people have moved pets safely and with the right amount of planning it can all go smoothly. Here are a few of our pet customer stories to help give you an idea of what to expect.
