PetAir UK have ample experience in transporting pets to Ireland. Here are the 4 essential steps for transporting your pets:
Step 1 – Your dog or cat needs a microchip.
Step 2 – They then need a rabies vaccination. They must be at least 3 months old before they have this. Some rabies vaccines in the UK last for 3 years and others will last for 3 years but need a top up after one year, so you need to know when the vaccine expires.
Step 3 – Your vet issues you with a pet passport, this is no longer sufficient for European travel. However, it can be used to track your rabies vaccinations.
Step 4 – If your pet is travelling by plane, then the airlines demand that they are checked within 10 days of the flight to ensure that they are fit and healthy.
As of January 1st 2021 there have been some changes to the requirement for European pet travel, read more about these here.
Pets entering Ireland are not required to go into quarantine, providing all the above requirements are met.
The following breeds of dog are recognised as restricted breeds and must be kept on leashes at all times:
