IS A PET PASSPORT STILL VALID?

You can no longer use a pet passport issued in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland) for travel to an EU country or Northern Ireland. You can however still use a pet passport issued in an EU country or Northern Ireland.

PET TRAVEL AFTER BREXIT?

The UK has become a Part 2 listed country, which means there will be some extra requirements for pet owners travelling to the EU. The following requirements will have to be compiled when bringing your pet to the EU:

  • Microchip
  • Rabies vaccination 21 days before travel.
  • Tapeworm treatment for dogs.
  • An Animal Health Certificate (obtained from the vet no more than 10 days before travel) confirming that your pet has both the microchip and rabies vaccination. YOU WILL HAVE TO GET A NEW CERTIFICATE FOR EVERY TRIP TO THE EU.
  • UK pet passport.

HOW DO I GET AN ANIMAL HEALTH CERTIFICATE?

An animal health certificate (AHC) can only be issued by an Official Veterinarian (OV). An appointment for this can be arranged by contacting your veterinary practice.

When you apply for an animal health certificate, you will need to take your pet, along with their vaccination and medical records including proof of rabies vaccination, to the issuing vet.

When you book an appointment, you will be sent a form to complete prior to your visit.  This will contain vital information that you need to supply before the AHC can be issued.  In some cases, the vets may need to contact a laboratory to confirm blood results.

An Animal Health Certificate normally includes details of:

  • Pet owner’s details
  • Your pet’s description
  • Rabies vaccination details (your animal will need to have been vaccinated at least three weeks prior to the AHC appointment and have had a UK Rabies vaccine within the past three years)
  • Rabies blood test (as required)
  • Canine tapeworm treatment (as required)
  • Intended country of entry into the EU. (The AHC has to be issued in the language of the country in which you are entering the EU and NOT your country of destination)

Why is an animal health certificate necessary?

An Animal Health Certificate, along with any other official documentation, is a legal requirement in order to bring your pet into the UK or take it to a European Union country without quarantine. The primary purpose is to keep the UK free from rabies, and other foreign diseases such as those transmitted by parasites that do not exist in the UK.

Which countries do I need an animal health certificate for?

You need an animal health certificate for your dog if they’ll be travelling from the UK to an EU country.  If your pet is travelling to a non-EU country then different rules will apply (for example additional documentation or blood samples).  Check the government guidelines on which countries this is applicable to.
