Changes to the Pet Passport! March 2019

Are you ready for the possible changes in pet travel?

Depending on what kind of deal is made with the EU, we could be suffering important alterations to pet passports and these could severely affect travel arrangements.

In the best-case scenario, there will be no changes to the waiting time for travel. However, there is also a chance that the proof for rabies vaccination will require titre testing and at least a 3 month waiting period before a health certificate can be issued. If vaccination is not up to date or if the pet has never been vaccinated against rabies, the titre test can only be done 30 days after being vaccinated.

Passports might also be replaced with health certificates. These certificates would be valid for 10 days after being issued and would need to be reissued for every trip.

If you’re travelling around the end of March/2019 or if you have any questions regarding the possible changes, give us a call and we’ll help you sort it out!
