Changes to Pet Travel in the event of a ‘No-Deal’ Brexit
In the event that Britain leaves the EU without a deal, implications for pet owners could come into force from 30th March 2019 but the advice is start planning now!
Start to plan, in a no deal situation, pet owners will still be able to travel to Europe with your pet after Brexit, but you could need to take additional steps and start preparations at least four months ahead of your planned departure.
The requirements for travelling abroad will likely include, making sure pets are effectivity vaccinated against rabies before they travel. This involves an up to date rabies vaccination and blood test to demonstrate sufficient levels of rabies antibody. The blood test would need to be carried out a minimum of 30 days after initial rabies vaccination and a minimum of three months before travel date.
