The Pet Travel Scheme

The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) allows dogs and cats to enter the UK from certain countries without having to spend 6 months in quarantine, provided that certain requirements have been met.

NB: The rules for pet passports have changed. The new rules which started on 1st January 2012 are outlined below…

What’s involved in obtaining a Pet Passport?


Firstly your pet must have a microchip fitted.

A small microchip is injected into the pet in much the same way as your vet would administer a vaccination. This must be done before the rabies vaccination. Click here for information.

Rabies Vaccination

Your pet is then vaccinated against Rabies.

The issue of the Pet Passport

The passport will be issued at the time of rabies vaccination, however your pet cannot travel to and from the UK until 21 days after the rabies vaccine. Your passport can be renewed by administering a rabies booster vaccine before the expiry date on the passport or if the vaccine date has expired having a single dose of vaccine at least 21 days before travelling.
