The Pet Travel Scheme has been set up to allow cats
and dogs to enter the UK from approved countries without going into quarantine.
In order to
comply with the Pet Travel Scheme, pet must meet the following conditions, in
this specific order; pets coming into
the UK from Malaysia (an approved non-EU country):
Pets must be microchipped. The
microchip must meet International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards
ISO 11784 and ISO 11785. Please bring your own microchip reader if your pet’s
microchip does not meet ISO standards.
Pets must be vaccinated against
rabies after the microchip and hold a current rabies vaccination.NOTE: Pets
must be at least 12 weeks old at the time of vaccination.
21 days must have passed after the rabies vaccination.
Pets must travel with an Official Health Certificate. All pets must
have a completed third country health certificate. It must be endorsed by the
necessary authority (this is not the same vet that completes the paperwork).
Pets must travel on an approved route with an approved airline. This means that
there is no longer the requirement for a blood test or for 6 months to pass
after the blood test; before the pet enter the UK.
Dogs only – Must be treated for
tapeworms between 24 and 120 hours prior to arrival in the UK. The treatment
must be within a licensed product containing praziquantel.
Pets must travel with supporting documentations – this means:
All appropriate health
Proof of microchipping:
certificate of registration/ patient notes/ letter from vet.
Proof of rabies vaccination:
Vaccination card/ Rabies vaccination certificate – these MUST have the
microchip number on or there will be delays.
Whichever country your pet
comes in from, it must travel as manifested cargo and clear customs. In order for us to clear the pet through
customs we will need a customs C5 form completed- one is available on the right
to download, along with a map to the Animal Reception Centre at Heathrow; where
pets can be collected from on the day of arrival.
For 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 certificate issued by the
Malaysian government veterinary health services which confirms:
It has had no contact with pigs
during at least 60 days prior to export.
It has not been resident on
holdings where during the previous 60 days any case of Nipah disease has been
It has had negative blood test results
carried out in a laboratory approved for testing for Nipah virus antibody on a
sample of blood taken within 10 days of export.
The above information is based on my opinion only, and
as such is advised on the Pet Travel Scheme requirements and not official
guidance. To this end we are not liable for any errors. We have been advised by
the authorities that we cannot give such guidance, and that it is the owner’s
responsibility to ensure that all requirements are met in order for their pet
to enter the UK under the Pet Travel Scheme.
PLEASE NOTE- IT
IS THE OWNER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE THAT THE ABOVE PROCEDURES ARE MET.
