The latest news about EU travel with pets issued by the Animal and Plant Health Agency.

The Current Situation

Pets will be able to travel to the EU using their current EU pet passport until the UK leaves the EU. No further checks or tests are required.

When the UK leaves the EU

  • When the UK leaves the EU it will become a third country. The documents required for pet travel to the EU will depend on what category of third country the UK becomes.

  • If a deal is agreed, and an implementation period is confirmed, pets will be able to continue to travel to the EU under current pet travel rules using the current EU pet passport.

We will continue to keep you up to date if there are any changes to this guidance.
