Our latest Brexit advice for taking your pet abroad

8 Nov 2019 | Other news

Well, as you all know, we are still confused about what is happening to our situation with regard to Europe. Under current advice from the government, the UK will still leave the European Union (EU), although we don’t know when. The situation regarding travel to the EU for Pets remains very uncertain.

The UK is likely to be treated as an ‘unlisted country’ under the EU Pet Travel Scheme if there’s a no-deal Brexit. If the UK is classed as an unlisted country after Brexit, Pet Passports issued in the UK would not be valid for travel to the EU.

If you have travel plans with your pet, please check current travel guidance as we cannot be held responsible or liable for your preparations and travel plans. Apologies we can’t be clearer but current advice should be obtained from:

If you’re planning on travelling with your pet, it’s really worth contacting your vet with four months notice so we can get things in place as well as we can at that stage.

And if and when things are clarified, we will let you know.
