  • Moving permanently back to the UK.

    Hi, im a UK national living in the Philippines and im thinking of moving back to the UK permanently next year. I have two dogs which im not going anywhere without, a female Rottweiler and a male Shiatsu. Both are 3 years old with lovable temperaments.

    Please can someone recommend an airline which would be the less stressful for them both and i would be accompanying them. I use Ethiad when i visit the UK but cannot find any info on this topic.

    Also approximate costings would be a great help as well as advice on where to buy pet crates here in the Philippines?

    Many Thanks,

    Dave

    Hi Dave - as you will be entering the UK from a country with a high level of rabies, you will need to microchip your pets, then vaccinate them. No sooner than 30 days after vaccination, your pets will need Blood Titer Tests. Assuming a result within accepted limits, your pets can enter the UK 3 months after the blood is drawn for the titer test. Within 10 days of travel, your pets will need a government licensed veterinarian to complete the Annex II form for the UK and they will need a tapeworm test between one and five days of travel. You can find all of the forms and instructions here: http://www.pettravelstore.com/categories/Pet-Passports/.

    Because the breed of your Rottweiler is considered dangerous in the UK, you will need to apply to DEFRA to get their permission. You can find details here: http://www.defra.gov.uk/wildlife-pets/pets/travel. You also have another challenge and that is because DEFRA requires that pets enter the UK as manifest cargo and many airlines have banned snub nosed breeds in cargo. Be sure and inquire when you call the airlines if they transport Shih Tzu breeds.

    I cannot advise on where to get crates in the Philippines, but here are the requirements if you decide to make them or have them made: http://www.iata.org/whatwedo/cargo/live-animals/Documents/Container-information-applicable-to-cats-and-dogs-CR1-LAR-2012.pdf.

        Ethiad is not indicated as being approved for bringing animals into the UK. No matter what airline you choose, your pets will have to travel into Heathrow, Gatwick or Manchester on an approved airline in the cargo hold. You can find the approved airlines here: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/210893/pets-air-routes.pdf

        If you need more information on taking a pet to the UK, you can find it here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/UnitedKingdom.cfm
