Pet Travel Scheme

Pet Travel Scheme (PETS)

Latest Update: If the EU withdrawal deal is passed by the UK parliament before January 31st 2020 (as seems likely), PETS will continue to operate as it has done up to this date.

To travel to and within the EU your Dog or Cat must have a Microchip, a Rabies vaccination and a pet passport. There is a minimum of 21 day wait from the date of Rabies vaccination and the day of travel.

To return to the UK, you must visit a vet in the EU (dogs only) between 2 and 5 days before return for a tapeworm treatment.

This situation will remain until 31st December 2020 – we do not know at this stage what will happen then, if you have very definite plans beyond this date it may be worth having a Rabies blood test.
