If you are planning to travel to the EU post Brexit with your pet, it is important you contact us as soon as possible for an update of any potential new requirements.
If the UK leaves the EU without a deal then it is likely that EU pet passports issued by a UK Official Veterinarian will no longer be valid. An Animal Health Certificate will need to be issued instead, this would be valid for:
- A single trip
- 10 days after the date of issue for entry into the EU
- 4 months of onward travel within the EU after the date of entry to the EU
- Re-entry to the UK for 4 months after the date of issue.
The final arrangements have still to be confirmed depending on any negotiations but your veterinary surgery will be able to advise further.
