How do I get a pet passport?

When travelling to or returning to the UK from another EU or non-EU listed country, your pet needs:

 

  1. a microchip.
  2. a rabies vaccination (make sure your pet is microchipped first or the vaccination won’t count)
  3. a pet passport or official third country veterinary certificate.
  4. tapeworm treatment (for dogs only)

 

After March 2019 there is still uncertainty about the status of Britain. It is possible that we might be designated an “unlisted country”.

If this were to be the case then to travel and return to Britain the following procedure would need to be followed:

Travelling into the EU from an unlisted country.

An ‘unlisted’ country is any country not included in the list of EU and non-EU countries.

When travelling to or returning to the UK from an unlisted country, your pet needs:

  • a microchip
  • a rabies vaccination (make sure your pet is microchipped first or the vaccination won’t count)
  • a blood test – the vet must take the blood sample at least 30 days after the rabies vaccination (the date of vaccination counts as day 0, not day 1)
  • an official third country veterinary certificate
  • tapeworm treatment(for dogs only)

You must wait 3 calendar months from the date the blood sample was taken before travelling. The vet must give you a copy of the test results. These must show that the vaccination was successful.

We suggest that if you have intention to travel next year, you consult your Veterinary Surgeon as soon as possible, to discuss steps that you might prefer to take in order to avoid disappointment.
