Changes to Pet Travel in the event of a ‘No-Deal’ Brexit

| 0 comments

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has advised that should the UK leave the EU next year without a deal, pet owners wishing to travel to the EU will need to take some additional steps to be able to travel.

If you are planning to travel after 29 March 2019, you will need to contact your vet at least four months in advance of your travel date to make sure your pets are microchipped and vaccinated against rabies.

Those wishing to travel to the EU on 30 March 2019, therefore, should discuss requirements with their vet as soon as possible and by 28 November 2018 at the latest.

The Government has published further guidance for pet owners on its website.
