  1. John – you can find requirements to import your Shih Tzu to the U.K. here with links to further instructions and forms if you need them: We would note that, because Brazil is considered a high-rabies country by the EU, the titer test in step #3 will be required. If there is not time for the 90 days to elapse, your Shih Tzu will be quarantined for the balance of that period.

  2. Hi, I am a uk expat returning to the uk from Brazil. While here I purchased a shih tzu who is now 2 years old, fully vaccinated up to date. I am returning full time to the uk at the end of July. I want to bring her back permanently and need to know what the entry requirements are and if she will face quarantine, please advise….

  3. Hi Shannon – ADA laws are US laws and do not apply in other countries unless they pass their own laws conforming to those of the US. It appears that you will need to register your dog as a resident animal on Anguilla before the 30 days expires. We were not aware of that regulation.

  4. I am relocating to Anguilla for Medical School for 20 months. I have a service dog I need to bring with me; however, I was told she could only have a 30 day passport. Does the ADA laws pertain to American citizens while living on the island for that long?? I would appreciate any advice possible to help me take my dog with me. She is very necessary for me to have. Thank You!!

  5. Brandon – sounds like you got requirements covered. microchip, current rabies vaccination and EU Pet Passport. If your dog and cats are not currently vaccinated, wait 21 days before travel. You will likely need to sign a Declaration of Non-Commercial Transport at Border Inspection attesting that you are not moving your pets to sell or changing ownership. (which you are not.) Have a safe trip.

  6. Hello!

    We successfully brought our dog and 2 cats from the USA to the UK in 2015 for a 2 year assignment. We are now accepting a 2 year assignment in Germany. From what I can tell, moving pets between 2 EU countries is somewhat easier (microchip and pet passport showing current rabies). I’m looking for some help confirming that this is indeed all that is required. We are considering flying from the UK to Amsterdam with the pets (short 45 min flight) and then driving from Amsterdam to our location in Germany. I just need some help confirming what is required for this type of journey. Thank you so much!
