What do I need to do to move my pet from Perth to Sabah? Where can I get all up-to-date information? Roughly how much does it cost to move my pet?
Thank you for submitting a question to us. In truth, moving pets to Sabah is no easy task, but that doesn't mean it's impossible. We have moved pets there and would be happy to offer some direction.
First, take a look at this overview of what it's like to move pets to Sabah and Sarawak
. You'll need to follow a careful schedule of rabies vaccinations and there will be a quarantine for your dog upon arrival (30 days minimum). We recommend flying with KLM or Lufthansa, but other options may exist, as well. Your dog will also need to be microchipped and you'll need to secure the correct size and type of travel crate.
As you can see, there are several variables at play for a move to Malaysia, and you may decide to hire some assistance from a professional pet transport service. If you'd like to find out more about our door-to-door services, please fill out our quote form
. A move like this will probably exceed $3,000 USD, but knowing more details will allow us to give you a more precise quote. If you'd like to invest more of your own time and spend less money, we recommend using IPATA.org
as a resource for locating local agents.
Hope this helps to get you started. Please let us know if you have more questions, and good luck with everything!
