Transportation of animals abroad: how to transport and what is needed for this

Study the requirements of the country

In many countries, the rules governing the importation of pets are different. There are states that are characterized by an increased infectious risk, so it is almost impossible to import pets. In countries where the import of animals is allowed, the authorities require compliance with all regulations. You can get acquainted with them on the website of the specialized authorities of the country where the owners of the animal go.

The country with the strictest veterinary services is Australia, they require all vaccinations and examinations in any accredited country. But even when importing an animal, the latter must be quarantined for 10 days.

Before traveling to Thailand, you need to report your intentions to the regulatory authorities and obtain permission.

Choose a place of residence

What to carry and how to fly

Pets are best transported in two ways:

  • in the cabin;
  • in the trunk.

In the cargo compartment, airline owners will create all the necessary conditions for a comfortable stay of the animal. The trunk is characterized by tightness, good heating and the ability to fix containers. For pets exceeding the weight of 45-50 kg, you need to draw up a contract for the carriage of goods.

If the species of the animal is valuable, it is better to keep silent about it. But at the exhibition you need to show confirmation.

The airline should also be notified and its consent should be obtained. They need to send all the documents by e-mail.

As you can see, it is quite possible to go abroad with an animal. But you will have to collect documents, negotiate with companies, put all the vaccinations and draw up all the documents. The rules of the country on the import of animals should be studied, and also book a hotel with the specification that they allow pets there.
