Like just about everything else, the Pet Passport scheme could be affected by the Brexit deal, or no deal.

There is a possibility that the UK could have it’s status changed in the event of a no deal, meaning that more stringent checks could be required for the movement of pets from the UK to the rest of Europe. Click here for more detail

Worst case is that you would need a blood test at least 30 days following  rabies vaccine, to ensure the vaccine has worked, to wait for 3 months following the blood test before you can travel, and to need an extra veterinary health certificate prior to travelling. The whole process would take a minimum of 4 months so you would need to start in November if you were planning to travel at the end of March.

Unfortunately at this stage we just don’t know, but if you are thinking of travelling next spring or summer please give us a call.
