Immigrating with your furry children can seem like a daunting task with endless amounts of paper work and confusing requirements.

 

At Pets Abroad we specialise in handling every aspect of pet relocation and getting our Pawsengers to their new destinations abroad happy and stress-free.

 

Pets Abroad will assist you every step of the way to get your pets to their destination of choice with ease.

PET TRAVEL CONTAINERS

We will provide you with an IATA Approved wooden travel crate that will be a suitable size for your pet, based on their measurements. The containers come with water bowls, no food is allowed during the flight. We do however suggest that you provide an item of clothing that has your scent, a blanket, and a small soft toy to comfort your pets during their flight.

AIRLINE BOOKINGS

It is our priority to ensure that we book the most suitable & shortest route to get your pets to their destination in the fastest possible time. We work closely with our freight agents to find you the most suitable flight at the most affordable rate.

KENNELLING

We work closely with kennels in the Johannesburg area and can assist you with getting a quotation should your dog require kennelling prior to travelling.

CUSTOMS CLEARANCE

Pets Abroad take care of all aspects of import and export customs for your pets. So you don’t need to worry.

VETERINARY HEALTH CERTIFICATE COMPLETION & GUIDANCE

STATE VET ENDORSEMENTS

We collect the health certificate and all your pets document from you or your local vet and submit these to the State Vet for endorsement. We will guide you through every step of completing all relevant documentation. We work closely with a vet that specialises in handling all documentation for exports to NZ and AUS which has different requirements to other countries.

What we need from you

By following this step by step guide to pre-relocation requirements, you will have your pets ready for relocating within the estimated departure time.

01. MICROCHIP

If your pets are not yet Micro-Chipped, this would be your 1st Priority. All destinations require pets to be microchipped with an ISO internationally recognised micro-chip. Please make sure that your vet of choice is using the recognised micro-chip from either VIRBAC-BACK HOME or IDENTIPET.

02. VACCINATIONS

All pets need the 5 in 1 vaccination for Dogs and the 3 in 1 Vaccination for Cats. This can be done by your local vet.

03. RABIES SHOT

All pets are required to have an up to date Rabies Vaccination. This can also be done by your local vet.

04. TITRE TEST

Pets relocating to NZ, AUS or EU need to have the Rabies Neutralising Antibody Titre Test. This can only be done 30 days after the Rabies vaccine. There is a 90-day wait after this test until your pet can travel.

05. EXTRAS

There are some countries that require extra blood tests and treatments in addition to the above. We can provide this information on your request.
