Travelling with your pet after the UK's withdrawal from the EU

The UK has left the European Union. Latest guidance from DEFRA on taking your pet to the EU is available here.

Since 01.01.21 the rules have changed for the carriage of many pets to France and Spain, for example tortoises and parrots. These changes may include, but are not limited to, the need for health or CITES certificates. There are English versions available of the official websites for those travelling to France and those travelling to Spain
