What do I need to do to prepare my animals to be relocated with me to England? Could you please send me the current requirements, as I don't want my animals to have to deal with being in quarantine.
Thanks for reaching out -- there are a few upcoming changes to the UK pet import process so your questions are timely.
First, take a look at the official announcement and information regarding the changes to the EU Pet Travel Scheme. Beginning in December of 2014, the rules for incoming pets will be adjusted. The primary difference involves when the pets can fly in relation to the owners (the owner must travel within five days of the pet), and a few other modifications have been made, as well.
These new rules are being closely examined by affected parties, and various pet travel companies and advocates are working hard to educate themselves and manage these new procedures. Anyone who has experience with pet travel knows that these rules could once again be adjusted, but for now it would be best to plan according to these guidelines and consult the help of experts as you move forward.
