Pet Travel in the event of a No-Deal Brexit

 In Pet Advice

The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons has issued advice on pet travel in the event of a no-deal Brexit, this advice is dependent on the outcome of government negotiations and is not currently law.

They advise that in the event of a no-deal Brexit, pets will still be able to travel to Europe but the travel requirements could be the same as a pet travelling to a 3rd country. Pets will have to have a rabies vaccine plus have a blood test to check that the vaccine has been effective, there would subsequently be a 3 month wait from the date of the blood test before the passport is valid. Microchipping will also be required as it is now.

The advice is currently that in the event of a no-deal Brexit, pet owners should begin the pet passport process no later than 28th November 2018.

The government have published further information on their website for owners, please contact us if you would like to book an appointment with one of our vets on 0208 450 2228.
