What happens when my pet and I arrive in the EU?
- Proof of Microchip
- Blood test results
- Your pets health certificate.
- Your animal health certificate is only valid for entry into the EU for 10 days after the date of issue
- After you enter the EU, you can travel within the EU for up to 4 months after the date of issue.
- You must re-enter the UK within 4 months of the date of issue.
- Animal health certificates will need to be issued every time your pet travels to the EU.
- If travelling to Finland, Republic of Ireland or Malta your pet must have treatment against tapeworm 1-5 days before arriving on one of those countries. The official name for tapeworm is Echinococcus multilocularis. Make sure your Official Veterinarian (OV) enters this on your pets health certificate.
- If you are travelling home to the UK after being in a country not free of tapeworm (Echinococcus multilocularis) you must also have treatment 1-5 days before entering the UK. Basically you need to do this when returning from every country apart from Finland, Republic of Ireland and Malta.
