BREXIT – Potential Changes to Pet Passport Requirements

13 January 2019

We want to make you aware that, as of March 2019, there may be significant changes to the legislation and arrangements covering pet travel due to the UK’s exit from the European Union.

Our current status as an EU member means that pet travel between the UK and EU is fairly simple. After our exit from the EU (as a non-member state) we will be assigned to one of three different categories, depending on the deal that is agreed. In the best case scenario, there will be little change in the current arrangements; but in the worst case significantly longer preparations for travel could be required, with additional certification prior to each trip. The initial preparation for travel could take four months or longer in this event, even if your pet currently has a valid Pet Passport.

As yet we do not know what the arrangements will be (and so what will be required if you wish to continue to travel with your pet). At the moment we believe that it is likely a deal will be reached that means the protocols will remain largely unchanged. However, we would advise you to contact us as soon as possible if you have any fixed plans to travel with your pet beyond the end of March 2019. We will try and advise you as best we can – if the travel plans are essential and cannot be altered then it may be sensible to begin preparations assuming a worst case scenario and factor in extra time to obtain compliant travel documentation for your pet.


BREXIT – Potential Changes to Pet Passport Requirements


If you have no travel plans in the near future then no action is currently needed, but be aware that in the future additional preparations may be required, which could take significantly longer than you have been used to.

We are monitoring the situation very closely and should have more information soon, which will be published on our website.
