Where Can We Take Our Pets?
The introduction of the Pet Travel Scheme (Pet Passport) means that we are able to take our pets with us on holiday if we choose to do so. However, the choice of destination is constantly under review and can be changed at any time. Even in the UK there are limitations on destinations that are available to dogs especially at the height of summer time.
OverseasTechnically you pet can travel anywhere in the world but if you intend for it to return to the UK it is then that the pet passport terms have to be followed. Any animal not conforming will be put into quarantine for six months. At present UK resident dogs, cats and ferrets can travel to and from European countries (EU) that are in the scheme. Any pet living in a EU country can also enter the UK under the scheme.
