An update regarding pet travel as we now enter a transition period

During the transition period, at the moment anticipated to last until the end of the year (December 31st 2020), the procedures of the Pet Travel Scheme remain the same, that is a microchip, rabies vaccination > 21 days before travel, pet passport and, in the case of dogs, tapeworm treatment 1-5 days before returning to the UK. We do not know how Pet Travel will look once the transition period is completed - it is likely going to be part of the agreement reached, and it may be that clients will wish to pass the rabies antibody blood test to make sure that they will be able to continue to travel, in all circumstances, with their pets to Europe after this time. This is probably a conversation between the Veterinary Surgeon and the client as regards to the best timing of this blood test to maximise the likelihood of getting a satisfactory result.

Please find the latest guidance document here from APHA in relation to Pet Travel now that the UK and EU have entered into the transition period
