Dear PetRelocation,

We are leaving for China at the end of this year and I was wondering if my dog needed to be put in quarantine before entering China.

If so, would this be done in Germany or China?

Many Thanks,



Hi Jacqui,

Thanks for your question. You can take a look at an overview of the pet import requirements for China here. There is no definite answer to your question of quarantine, as whether or not your dog will need to fulfill one depends on your port of entry and a few other factors. 

That being said, we have experience moving pets to China and have helped several pets move safely to Shanghai, including Lucy and Milo. We'd be happy to offer you further guidance about your options; if you're interested you can fill out our free quote form or give our office a call.

Thanks again, and we hope to speak to you soon!
