Here is a breakdown of how to take your pet to France.
As of January 1st 2021 there have been some changes to the requirement for European pet travel, read more about these here.
Step 1: Make sure your pet is microchipped with an ISO compliant microchip.
Step 2: Your pet will need a rabies vaccination after the microchip is implanted. This will need to be given more than 21 days before entry to France but not after the vaccination has expired so make sure you know when this is! When your pet has entered either of these countries for the first time, it will not need a 21-day waiting period for future visits – you just need to keep rabies boosters up-to-date and make sure other entry requirements are met.
Step 3: If you are taking your pet to France by plane, then they will need to be checked within 10 days of the flight to ensure they are free of disease and in good health.
