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.
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:
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, 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.
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.
If you are travelling with your pet, Protectapet offer European and worldwide Pet travel cover to protect your valuable pets whilst on holiday, in transit, in quarantine or whilst travelling by land, sea or air.
