Travelling with your pet after the UK's withdrawal from the European Union

After the UK's withdrawal from the European Union, you will still be able to travel with your pet to Europe whether a deal is reached between the United Kingdom and the European Union on the terms of exit, or not. In the event of there being “No Deal”, you may need to take some additional steps and what follows is the best advice we’ve been able to secure for you and your pet to continue enjoying travel to France and Spain.

To ensure you have all you need to travel with your pet after the UK's withdrawal from the European Union, the UK Government recommends that you contact your vet at least 4 months in advance of travel.

The requirements for travel would include making sure that your pet is effectively vaccinated against rabies. This would require:

  • An up-to-date rabies vaccination.
  • A blood test to demonstrate sufficient levels of rabies antibody.

The blood test would need to be carried out a minimum of 30 days after any initial rabies vaccination and a minimum of 3 months before your travel date.

More information can be found on the Government’s website on Pet travel to Europe after Brexit.
