  • Dunedin (NZ) to Edinburgh with an 8 year old Border Collie X

    We are moving to Scotland. Our Border Collie Cross (Scruff) is microchipped in New Zealand. We will travel to Edinburgh UK from Dunedin NZ, and want to know our best route, what airlines can carry us, and if possible find out an approximate cost. What are the regulations we must satisfy to gain entry to Scotland?

    It's a long journey and we are also wondering if it is fair on Scruff to do this to him?

    hi Mike - Scruff can fly on an approved airline into Edinburgh as it is a Border Inspection Post. The following airlines are approved to fly into Edinburgh: Air Canada, Etihad, KLM/Air France, Lufthansa, Qatar, United and Thomson. Scruff must fly as air cargo according to airline regulations. You can find the requirements to import him to Scotland here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/Scotland.cfm. Note that, as New Zealand is considered a rabies-controlled country by the EU, a titer test is not required.

    Traveling is stressful on everybody, but if Scruff is in good health and is acclimated to his crate, he will should be fine. Normally, pets sleep to the drone of the engines. Certainly, pets would rather accompany their owners than be left behind. But no one other than you know what is best for your dog.
