Microchip and Vaccinations

When organising pet travel to New Zealand, you must ensure that your pet meets specific health standards before travelling. Both cats and dogs must be fully microchipped and tested for rabies before arranging pet travel. Get in touch with Transfur Animals if you need more information on the pet health requirements for New Zealand.

When importing cats and dogs from the UK to New Zealand, they will be quarantined for at least 10 days. Quarantine facilities are only available in Auckland and Christchurch – so please keep this in mind when arranging pet travel to New Zealand.
