Countries in the United Kingdom are England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands with consist of Alderney, Guernsey, Jersey, Sark and Hern. Please refer to the European Union entry. On 28 February 2000, the British Government launched the Pet Travel Scheme (PETS), which allows certain dogs and cats to enter the United Kingdom without quarantine, provided they meet the necessary conditions. PETS currently applies to 24 countries in Western Europe (Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the Vatican). Exceptions to the above are Norway excludes Svalbard, Portugal includes the Azores and Madeira; and Spain includes the Canary Islands but excludes Ceuta and Melilla. Note: Cyprus and Malta have additional requirements. Please go to http://www.defra.gov.uk/animalh/quarantine/index.htm for the specifics.
The Pet Travel Scheme also extends to certain Long Haul (non-European) countries and Territories. These are Antigua and Barbuda, Ascension Island, Australia, Bahrain, Barbados, Bermuda, Canada, Cayman Islands, Falkland Islands, Fiji, French Polynesia, Guadeloupe, Hawaii, Jamaica, Japan, Martinique, Mauritius, Mayotte, Montserrat, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Reunion, St Helena, St Kitts & Nevis, St Vincent, Singapore, United States, Vanuatu and Wallis, and Futuna. The procedure for bringing pets into the UK from these countries or territories is slightly different.
Pets normally resident in the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, and the Republic of Ireland can enter England under the Scheme from qualifying countries as long as they have the appropriate official certification. They can then travel freely between these countries without the need for official documentation. Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, and the Republic of Ireland have each produced their own official PETS certificate.
To bring your pet cat or dog into the UK under the Pet Travel Scheme from one of the qualifying countries you must carry out the following procedures in the order shown. If your pet is a resident in France, these procedures may be done in a different order. Your pet may be microchipped in any country. The rabies vaccination (including boosters), blood sampling, issuing the PETS certificate, the tick and tapeworm treatment, and issuing the official certificate of treatment must all be carried out in either the British Isles, the Republic of Ireland or a qualifying country.
Your pet may not enter the UK under PETS until six months have passed from the date of a successful blood test result. If the veterinarian signs the PETS certificate after that six-month period has passed, your pet may enter the UK immediately.
