Pet Passport United Kingdom


Flag United Kingdom

European Union (EU) regulations for taking a pet dog, cat or ferret to the United Kingdom (UK) from a rabies free country or a country with a low incidence of rabies*:

If your pet is entering the United Kingdom and they are entering from a rabies free or country with a low incidence of rabies after residing there for at least the preceeding 6 months, they will not be quarantined if they follow these steps in the following order:

  1. ISO 11784/11785 compliant 15 digit pet microchip. If your pet's microchip is not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, you can bring your own microchip scanner.
     
  2. Rabies vaccination no sooner than 21 days** prior to entry and not more than the expiration date of the manufacturer of the vaccine.  If your dog, cat or ferret has been vaccinated before it was fitted with a microchip, it will have to be vaccinated again after the microchip is implanted.
     
  3. For pets entering or leaving the United Kingdom to or from a country with a high incidence of rabies, a Blood Titer Test administered no sooner than one month after rabies vaccination. Samples must be processed at approved laboratories. Assuming test results within acceptable limits, your pet can enter the United Kingdom 90 days after the date the blood was drawn and avoid quarantine. This step is not required unless entering or leaving the United Kingdom from or to a high rabies country.
     
  4. Within 10 days of travel, an accredited veterinarian must then complete the bi-lingual Annex II for United Kingdom for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are not traveling from either of these countries, endorsement is not required unless your country mandates it.
     
  5. A copy of the Rabies Certificate and Blood Titer Test results should also be included for endorsement (if applicable).
     
  6. Before your dog can enter the United Kingdom, it must be treated against certain tapeworms one to five days prior to entering the country unless your pet is entering directly from Finland, Ireland, Malta or Norway.
     
  7. if you are unable to travel with your pet, you will need to sign a declaration confirming that you do not intend to sell or transfer ownership of your pet. You must travel within 5 days of your pet’s movement.

This completes a pet passport for your dog, cat or ferret to enter the United Kingdom.

Due to regulations of commercial airlines approved to fly animals to the UK, pets must arrive as manifest cargo unless they are medically certified service animals or documented emotional support animals and the airline has a program that supports the transport of these animals in the cabin.

Dog Passport United Kingdom

*Pets entering the UK from northern Cyprus who did not originate in the UK and meet the requirements of the Pet Scheme are subject to the rules for entering from a country with a high incidence of rabies. When arriving in the United Kingdom by air, all pets, with the exception of service animals, must do so by manifest cargo. Pets entering by air from outside the UK must do so on an approved airline at Border Inspection Points of London Heathrow, London Gatwich, London Manchester (pets accompanied by their owners), Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dublin.

**After the first vaccination and waiting period, you can enter the UK whenever you like as long as booster vaccinations are given on time and you continue to meet the other entry requirements.

Puppies and Kittens: Unvaccinated puppies and kittens are not permitted to enter the UK. Effective December 29, 2014, rabies vaccinations cannot be given earlier than 12 weeks of age.

Restricted Breeds: The following breeds are not permitted to enter the UK: Brazilian Fila, Dogo Argentino, Japanese Tosa Inu or Pit Bull Terrier. If you have a wolf hybrid or Savannah cat, then you must seek advice from the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency before you travel.

Dogs and cats from the Malaysian Peninsular
A dog or cat from Malaysia (Peninsular) is prohibited from entering the UK unless it is accompanied by a certificate issued by the Malaysian government veterinary health services which confirms:

Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet will be refused entry or returned to the country of origin or placed in quarantine, all at the expense of the person responsible for your pet.

Commercial Movements: Unless you are traveling to a show or competition with more than 5 pets over 6 months of age, you must travel from a registered premesis, use a licensed transporter, register the transport on the TRACES system, and also enter the UK through a Border Inspection Post..

Inspection: All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the port of entry to the United Kingdom. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.

Other Animals: Birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits are not subject to requirements of rabies vaccination, but may have to meet other requirements and should have a health certificate to enter the United Kingdom. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.

If your pet is not a dog, cat or ferret, and especially if it is a turtle or parrot, you should verify that it is not protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITIES).  You will need to apply for additional permits if this is the case. Search their database. Over 180 countries participate and enforce CITIES regulations. Read more about CITIES.

Veterinary Certificate: All countries have unique veterinary certificates. This form may differ from the veterinary certificate issued by veterinarians in the United States. (APHIS 7001) It is an essential part of the cat or dog passport.

You can bring up to 5 before the transport becomes a commercial transport. Then there are additional requirements. They must all travel as manifest cargo into the UK.

I'm looking at purchasing a puppy from Saskatchewan, Canada , to bring to the UK , what procedures have to be done and followed to do this ?
Posted on 2014-01-30 10:18:13.0
PetTravel
Puppies cannot enter the UK until 21 days after they receive their rabies vaccination. Generally, this vaccination is not administered until 3 months of age. The process is: microchip, then vaccinate for rabies (in that order). Within 10 days of entry, a veterinarian will complete the Annex II form for the UK for endorsement by the CFIA. The puppy will also need a tapeworm test within one and five days of travel. Assuming that you are not traveling with the puppy, the UK may consider it a commercial import. You should discuss the consignment with your breeder.

You will need at least 4 months to prepare. Your pet must be microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies. No sooner than one month later, your vet will administer a blood titer test for processing at an approved laboratory. Assuming results within acceptable limits, your pet can enter the UK 90 days after the date the blood was drawn without quarantine.

Having a puppy shipped from Belgium to UK. The puppy is 12 weeks and the owner wants to send the puppy via airplane. The puppy has : # AKC Registration # Current vaccinations # Veterinarian examination # 1 Year Health guarantee # Certificate of health How long will it take for the puppy to be allowed in the country?

The puppy must be microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies, then wait 21 days prior to entering the UK. Because rabies vaccinations are generally administered at 3 months, that would put the age of the puppy just shy of 4 months.

The rabies jabs are given at 3 months and the wait is 21 days as long as you are entering from another EU country or listed non EU country. You can find listed non-EU countries here: http://www.pettravel.com/passports_third_countries.cfm
Posted on 2014-03-20 03:47:24.0

Hi Azeem - there is a process that must be followed to bring a dog to the UK from Pakistan. Because Pakistan is a high rabies country, the dog must be microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies (in that order). Then wait for 30 days and have your vet administer a Blood Titer Test. Assuming acceptable results, your dog can enter the UK 90 days after the date the blood was drawn. It will need an Annex II form filled out no more than 10 days prior to travel and a tapeworm test within one and five days of travel. You can find a link to complete instructions and all forms required for taking your brother's dog to the UK here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/UnitedKingdom.cfm.

Hi Andreia - your kitty can fly to Portugal in the cabin, but must travel as manifest cargo going back to the UK. One option would be to drive and use Euro Shuttle to Calais France. There are also pet friendly ferries to get you across the channel. You can find them here: http://www.pettravel.com/cruise_ferry_rules.cfm Let me know if you need more information.

Also I'm confused re the EU Annex II form....does the dog need to be examined by a veterinarian accredited by the USDA who completes the form and then the complete form ALSO needs to be brought to the USDA office to be stamped as well?

PetTravel
Jean - do not include the day your pet is vaccinated or the day you enter the country in the 21 day wait. As far as the Annex II form, a USDA accredited vet will fill it out and you will send or take it to your State USDA office for endorsement. You should also have an APHIS 7001 form included. You have 10 days to enter the UK from the date the form is endorsed. Between one and five days of entry, your pet needs a tapeworm test.

I am moving to Germany with a young puppy. I would like to return to the UK in August for a few weeks. I am concerned that she will not be allowed to return with me as she will not have resided there for the proceeding 6 months - she will have everything else needed to return. Please explain what happens in this case? Thanks
Posted on 2014-05-06 12:16:35.0
PetTravel
Arabella - it totally depends on the age of your puppy. The United Kingdom will not permit unvaccinated puppies to enter the country, so your pet will need to be at least 3 months old and you will need to have him microchipped and vaccinated at least 21 days prior to re-entering the UK together with the other requirements. This would put your puppy's age at nearly 4 months when returning to the UK.
Posted on 2014-05-09 03:09:24.0

Your puppy will also need an EU Pet Passport and a tapeworm treatment given between one and five days of entry to the UK.

Utku - you should not have any problems bringing your cat to the UK. It will need a microchip implanted and a rabies vaccine at least 21 days prior to travel. Have your vet update your EU pet passport within 10 days of travel. Your cat will need to travel as manifest cargo into Heathrow, Gatwick or Manchester. Once you have landed, your kitty will be taken to the Animal Reception Center where you will pick it up after it is examined and its papers are processed.

Since we will be entering the UK from America with our Lab, will she need a Blood Titer Test from the vet? (According to your Pet Passport Instruction list it says only if entering from Countries with a High Incidence of Rabies). Thank you
Posted on 2014-05-12 19:02:38.0
PetTravel
Sandra - assuming your Lab has resided in the US for at least 6 months, or is less than 6 months and was born there, it will not need a titer test. The EU considers the US a Third Country or rabies-controlled country.

Anyone know the rules about bringing a dog from south korea to the UK (northern ireland) ??
Posted on 2014-05-20 01:35:08.0
PetTravel
Hi Ann - Your pet does not have to reside in Dubai for 6 months prior to re-entering the UK assuming your pet resided in the UK prior to leaving and has not entered into a high-rabies country since being out of the UK. Dubai is considered a Third country which means that your Chihuahua will need proof of a microchip and a rabies vaccination given AFTER the microchip was implanted and no sooner than 21 days prior to entering, an Annex II form for the UK completed within 10 days of entry and a tapeworm treatment between one and five days of entry. Not sure if Dubai will have export requirements, but they are usually for residents and not tourists.
Posted on 2014-05-20 03:53:32.0
PetTravel
Hi Aoife - South Korea is considered by the EU to be a high rabies country. This means that the following process will need to be followed: get your pet microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies (in that order, but the same vet visit is fine), then wait 30 days (not including the day of the vet visit), then have your vet administer a titer test and send to an approved lab. Assuming acceptable results, your pet can enter the UK no sooner than 90 days after the date the blood was drawn. Your vet will complete the Annex II form within 10 days of travel and your pet will need a tapeworm treatment between one and five days of travel. You can find the details here together with links to step by step instructions and all the forms necessary should you need them: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/UnitedKingdom.cfm

Hi there, I'm looking to relocate my pug dog from Hong Kong to London. I know that some airlines will not transport pugs, but I have found that Lufthansa will. I believe that pets travelling into the UK from HK do not need to be quarantined. My dog is up to date with his vaccinations (rabies included), has a microchip and is in good health. My main question (read: stress!) is what kind of paperwork my dog would need to be allowed entry, and how can I go about booking a flight for myself and him? The flight will connect in Germany, does pet cargo get transferred just as luggage would? Lufthansa gives all the information, but I'm just not sure how to book. They also say that because he's a snub-nosed breed, he'll need to be shipped in a larger crate than his size would normally require, but I can't seem to find information on the size he would need as a snub-nosed breed (he weighs 10kg, by the way). I know these are a lot of spazzy questions…just so concerned about my precious cargo! Laura x
Posted on 2014-05-21 06:25:29.0
PetTravel
Hi Laura - first of all, your Pug will not need to be quarantined in the UK when entering from Hong Kong as long as it has been vaccinated for rabies AFTER its microchip was implanted and that vaccination is still current. You will need an Annex II form for the UK filled out by your vet within 10 days of travel and your pet will need a tapeworm treatment between one and five days of entry to the UK. You can find details here and step by step instructions and all forms required here if you need them: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/UnitedKingdom.cfm. As for booking a flight, you will contact Lufthansa reservations for yourself and Lufthansa Cargo for your Pug as it will be traveling as manifest cargo. As long as you are staying on Lufthansa, the airline will transfer him from plane to plane. Your layover should be around 2 hours. If it is more, you will need to discuss care with Lufthansa Cargo, but their hub is Frankfurt and they have great facilities there. As for sizing your pet for a crate, look at this page for that information: http://www.pettravel.com/passports_container_requirements.cfm. Once you find the right size carrier, then increase it by one size. Hope this helps.

Given all the jabs and things we need to do before she is allowed to travel to the UK, when is the earliest we could bring her? We'd be driving.

After the vaccination, you need to wait 21 days prior to entering the UK.

Archie - we know of no commercial airline that will accept a Doberman Pinscher in the cabin unless it is a small puppy. Your other option would be a private charter, but that is very expensive. The passport for the UK is comprised of the forms and tests required to enter the country. What country are you entering the UK from? It will make a difference in the process.

Posted on 2014-06-16 18:33:49.0

Archie - unless you start the preparations 4 months ahead of time, your pet will be subject to quarantine in the UK. This is because the UK considers India to be a high-rabies country. You will need to have your vet microchip your pet, then vaccinate for rabies (in that ofder, but same vet visit is fine.) Wait 30 days (not including the day of the vet visit) and have your vet administer a blood titer test. Assuming acceptable results, your pet can enter the UK 3 calendar months after the date the blood was drawn. If you don't have that amount of time, then your pet will serve the balance of the time in quarantine.

Jacob - have your vet microchip your pet with a 15 digit ISO compliant microchip, then vaccinate it for rabies, even if it already has a current rabies vaccination. It must happen AFTER the chip is implanted. Your Pom can enter the UK 21 days after the vaccination. Your pet will need an Annex II form for the UK completed by your vet and endorsed by your State USDA office within 10 days of travel and a tapeworm treatment between one and five days of travel.

Hi there - I've been given a last minute assignment for 2-3 months in the UK. I'm coming from the US. I want to bring my wire fox terrier with me, though I need to leave next Thursday, which is very soon. I have an appt w/ a vet tomorrow to get certificates and shots all squared away. The main thing I'm worried about is that can my dog not fly with me until it's past the 21 day mark? He already has updated rabies shots however. If he can't go when I go, how do pets get shipped over on their own? I can pick him up in London, but not sure the procedure for getting him to the airport in New York. Thanks!

Hi, We shipped our two Toy Poodles from the UK to Egypt a year ago. They had UK pet passports and their vaccinations, including rabies were all up to date. We have maintained their vaccination status. What do we need to take them back to the UK for either a short term visit or permanently, avoiding the need for quarantine in the UK? We also have two cats acquired in Egypt. They have both been fully vaccinated, including rabies, but do not have pet passports. What is the process required to take them back to the UK, avoiding quarantine, as above? Thanks. Any help / advice would be greatly appreciated.

Moira - because the UK considers Egypt to be a high-rabies country, your kittens will be 7 months before they can enter the country. They will need microchips, rabies vaccinations, 30 day wait, titer test, then a 90 day wait before they can enter the country. The UK will not permit unvaccinated puppies or kittens to enter. You can find details here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/UnitedKingdom.cfm.
Posted on 2014-07-17 02:06:57.0

It depends on whether your pet has been microchipped. The regulations state that your pet must be vaccinated for rabies AFTER the microchip was implanted. Then comes the 21 day wait. You can find details here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/UnitedKingdom.cfm

Posted on 2014-07-21 16:37:10.0

Garry - the airlines require that your pet enter as manifest cargo due to the handling procedure once you get to London. One suggestion that may work. Consider flying with your pet in the cabin to Paris and renting a car and driving to Calais and taking the Le Shuttle to England. It is not a hard process as long as you return the car to Paris. (the rental companies do not like it when you leave the car in the UK) You will need an Annex II form for France which you can use to enter the UK with a tapeworm treatment within one to five days of travel. You can find details for entering France here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/France.cfm. Just a thought..

The tapeworm treatment can be done in either country. You can have it done at home, but you must enter the UK within 5 days of the test.

hello , I have a question please, I am hoping to adopt a Chihuahua from the states and she will be vac/chipped etc as per rules, to bring her to the UK, but she will most likely land in Germany or maybe France, will she then need another tape worm treatment before entering the UK? or will the one provided in the USA be sufficient? many thanks and with kind regards

Hi there, I live with my 2 cats in Dublin, they've been living here for exactly 6 months. They are from Brazil though. Before they entered here, we followed all the procedures such as chip and all the vaccinations. Now we are planning to move to London. What should I do in first instance? many thanks!

Hi, please could you please inform us how is the travel process from Brazil to the UK with 4 cats? Thanks in advance. Cheers.

Hello - as Brazil is considered by the UK as a high-rabies country, you will need to follow the process outlined here including the Blood Titer Test: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/UnitedKingdom.cfm. If your pet is not currently microchipped and vaccinated for rabies, then it will take you 4 months to complete the process. If you need instructions and forms required to take your pets to the UK, there is a link on the page.

Vivian - as long as the tapeworm test is done between one and five days of entry, it should be good. Matters not where the treatment is done. Just know that the UK will enforce this rule.

Larissa - six months is minimum you can live in a country before being considered a resident. You should be fine entering England with an updated EU pet passport.

Hello pet Travel: I am moving from US to London. My dog red has a chip (AVID 012.018.343), is this acceptable in the UK or do I need to bring my own reader? Also, do you recommend a service that will help me get Red over to London based in the US? Lastly is there a specific airline that handles pet travel from the US to UK better then the rest?

A reminder that Red would have a home in SF should England fail to succumb to his adorableness...Midge has a soft spot for him.

Hey Billy (and David!) -- When I moved off to Paris, I had a pet "travel agent". She made sure all my forms were in order and checked with the airlines and such to make sure all was on the up-and-up. You definitely do NOT want Red to have to go for 30-90 days in containment because of a missed checkbox. You'll likely have to get a bunch of USDA forms, and I recommend 3-year shots for *everything* [rabies, bordatella, etc.] -- barbara@puppytravel.com -- Barbara Debry http://www.puppytravel.com/

William - you will either need to either re-microchip your pet or carry a reader with you so your pet's microchip can be identified as the UK requires a 15 digit ISO compliant microchip. (http://www.pettravelstore.com/pet-microchip/) We are based in the US (Florida) or we can recommend another agent to assist in the move if you need one. Fill out your details and we can either get you a quote or recommend an agent. (http://www.pettraveltransport.com/pettransportquote.html). We don't recommend one airline as "better" than another. it depends on when you are going and your route. If you mention what city your pet is flying out of, we can be of more assistance.

PetTravel okay cool! thank you very much for that, my little Chi girl is now with foster in the USA awaiting her 21 days and then she will be on her way to me :D I am soooo excited! and I hope it will be an example for others who would like to adopt from the shelters in USA and that it can be done, so many of them die out there

Kat - first of all, make sure you know the owner of the puppies. There are scams all over the internet involving pets. Assuming this is a legitimate transaction, it will depend on where you live. If it is in the UK, then your pups need to be old enough to be microchipped, then vaccinated for rabies (at least 3 months) and wait for 21 days after vaccination to enter the UK. If they have an EU pet passport, the vet will record the details of the microchip and vaccination in the passport, otherwise they will need an Annex II form for the UK completed within 10 days of travel.

PetTravel thats awesome! I'm hoping that if I can do this, it will be an example for more people here and across Europe, that it IS possible and with great sites like this one, easy to find information , so many more could be saved ;) and yes, I too have only had rescue dogs myself, from Holland, Turkey, Canary Islands and from the UK :D

I have another question please, the person who is organising my dog's flight from the USA is asking for the Anex II form, how does that work please? do I get it from my vet here? or will it be needed to get in the USA? we had a change of plan and hoping to fly her from Germany to the UK, what do I need to do? thank you :)

Vivian - if your pet is departing the US, you will need to have a USDA accredited vet complete the Annex II form and an APHIS 7001 form for endorsement by the USDA within 10 days of travel. You can find them both by clicking on the blue button on this page: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/UnitedKingdom.cfm. The vet in the US must fill them out and your person in the US must get them endorsed by the State USDA office. The instructions will tell you how to do that. If your pup lands in Germany first, she will need an Annex II from for Germany (http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/Germany.cfm) which is good for the trip to the UK as well. Don't forget, either way, the pup will need a tapeworm treatment between one and five days of entering the UK. It is not required for Germany,.

Hope this helps honey Entry Requirements: Traveling to the UK with your pet is easier than ever before! Just make sure you follow the steps below in the listed order and have all paperwork on hand when traveling to the UK. Your pet must be microchipped first before any additional vaccinations. Your pet must be vaccinated against rabies after being microchipped and no less than 21 days prior to your entry into the UK. Obtain an official third country veterinary certificate. Contact your local USDA accredited veterinarian to obtain the APHIS 7001 Health Certificate. Tapeworm treatment must be administered by a vet not less than 24 hours and not more than 120 hours (1-5 days) before its scheduled arrival time in the UK. Confirm pet travel arrangements. Quarantine Information: Pets with complete vaccinations and paperwork do not need to be quarantined.

Rhonda - Bahamas are considered a high-rabies country. A titer test is required for entry.
