Dear PetRelocation,

We only moved our pets here last year from the UK. All their vaccinations are up to date, so what do we need to do to send them back? Is there a quarantine?




Hi Lee,

Thanks for your question; it's sounds like you're in pretty good shape!

To make sure you complete all the necessary requirements, please take a look at the pet import rules for the UK. There is no longer a quarantine, but you still need to have an official health certificate issued by your vet (one for each pet).

Please let us know if you have any questions about choosing a pet-friendly airline, obtaining the health certificate, or anything else.

Have a great trip, and thanks again for reaching out!
