Many of our clients enjoy traveling with their pets, but since Brexit the requirements for per import and export have changed. At All Pets we are able to help with advice and service to get you and your pet safely on your way. Further information on currents requirements can be found on gov.je here
Please make an appointment with a vet, via the button below, to discuss pet travel to Europe and we can send you a questionnaire regarding your trip. Current requirements for travel include that your pet is microchipped followed by a vaccination against Rabies when they are at least 12 weeks old. Pets can then travel 21 days after the rabies vaccine is given. In order to come back into Jersey, you will need to take them to a vet to have a worming treatment given between 24 hours and 120 hours (1 to 5 days) of arrival back in Jersey.
Unfortunately, post-Brexit pet passports issued in the UK or Jersey are no longer valid for travel, and veterinarians in the UK and Jersey are not able to update EU pet passports. Instead, our Official Veterinarians will issue your pet an Animal Health Certificate (AHC) within 10 days of your travel. This AHC is valid for return up to 4 months. Each time they travel to the EU your pet will need a new certificate. As before, no certificate is needed for travel to the UK.
Pet export to countries other than the EU can be lengthy and costly. We advise you make an appointment with a vet as soon as know that you wish to expatriate your pet, ideally getting in touch with an approved pet carrier beforehand and bringing all of the information they provide you with so that we can form a plan with plenty of time.
