What Is A Pet Passport?
A pet passport is an official document that allows domestic pets, such as dogs, cats, and ferrets, to travel internationally. It serves as a standardized record of the pet’s health, vaccinations, and identification information, making it easier for pets to move between countries without lengthy quarantine periods.
As of 2021, and since Brexit, the UK no longer issues official dog passports.
When traveling abroad with your pet, you will need the following prior to traveling:
- An animal health certificate or a valid pet passport
- A microchip
- A current rabies vaccination
- Tapeworm treatment for dogs if you’re traveling directly to Finland, Ireland, Norway or Malta.
How Do You Get A Pet Passport?
Pet Passports are issued by a veterinarian in compliance with regulations and requirements of the destination country. These requirements can widely vary from one country to another, so it’s essential to research and prepare well in advance if you plan to travel internationally with your pet.
Pet Passports have streamlined the process of travelling with pets, as they provide a standard way to demonstrate a pet’s health and vaccination status to customs and border control authorities.
How Much Does A Pet Passport Cost?
The cost of obtaining a passport can vary depending on several factors, including the specific requirements of your destination country and the services provided by your veterinarian. Here are some common expenses associated with getting a pet passport:
Vaccinations: Necessary vaccinations, such as rabies, may be required for your pet to obtain a pet passport. Vaccine costs vary depending on the type of vaccination and where you receive it.
Blood Tests: Some countries require specific blood tests to ensure your pet is adequately protected against diseases. These tests can add to the overall cost.
Additional services: Depending on your travel plans, you may need additional services such as pet transport, quarantine, or specialised health certificates. These services come with their own associated costs.
The primary cost of obtaining a pet passport comes from the veterinary services required to prepare your pet for international travel.
