EU pet passport

The EU pet passport replaces the UK PETS certificate, and applies to movement of dogs, cats and ferrets between Member States. PETS certificates may still be used for dogs and cats to enter the UK (and, since 1 October, other member states) until the valid until date on the certificate.

Pets will have to be accompanied by a Passport (or, for dogs and cats, a PETS certificate) confirming the pet’s identification and a valid rabies vaccination given by a vet. For dogs and cats entering the UK, the passport must also confirm a satisfactory blood test result. Your pet dog or cat will not be able to enter the UK until 6 months have passed from the date the blood sample was taken that gave a successful blood test result.
