UPDATE – Dec 28, 2020
Travelling with your pet to Europe after 1st January 2021
You will still be able to take your pet companion with you from 1st January 2021 without the need for quarantine. However, the rules will change: The current requirements for pets to have a microchip and then a rabies vaccination at least 21 days before travel will remain. However, Pet Passports will be replaced by Animal Health Certificates (AHC) which must be signed by a vet within 10 days of travelling. A new AHC will need to be issued every time you travel to the EU with your pet.

As negotiations are still in progress this advice may be subject to change and we advise that you consult the government website before travelling.
Please contact the surgery if, having consulted the government website, you have any further questions about taking your pet abroad.
