UK Pet Travel Update: Clarifying the New Rules

London TowerThe new year is fast approaching, which means that Pet Imports to the UK are (almost) set to be handled much differently.

Review the new UK pet import rules if you're planning a big move, and for further clarification, check out the details below:

-Effective Jan. 1, 2012, pets can be shipped from any country in the world into any UK airport with PETS facilities - LHR (London Heathrow), LGW (Gatwick), MAN (Manchester), BRS (Bristol) and DSA (Doncaster).

-The current Veterinarian Certificate will still be accepted until June 30, 2012 if it was issued before Feb. 29, 2012, and a new certificate will soon be available.

Please contact if you have any questions about moving pets to the UK.
