Brexit Pet Passport Update January 2020

Travelling With Your Pet After Brexit

When the UK leaves the EU at 11pm on 31st January 2020, we will enter a period of transition until 31st December 2020.

Are Pet Passports Still Valid?

Any current pet passport remains valid until at least 31st December 2020, depending on further discussions and what deal is struck with the EU for after this date.

So Can I still Travel With My Pet?

Up until 31st December 2020, you can travel with your pet on their current Pet Passport as before.

Keep an eye on the current guidelines if you are planning to return to the UK or enter another EU country after this date.

Does My Pet Still Need To Have a Blood Test Before Travel?

Current advice from the APHA is that a blood test for the efficacy of the Rabies vaccination is not currently required.

This will be reviewed later on in the year and we will keep you informed of any changes as we learn them.

Do I Need a Health Certificate to Travel With My Pet?

The situation is the same as with the blood test for Rabies – currently, a health certificate is not required. This will be reviewed later in the year and we will inform you of any changing pet passport and pet travel guidelines.
