All pets that move to Australia are subject to a strict set of rules. Here is a brief outline of the requirements:

  • Microchip
  • Rabies vaccination
  • Blood test for rabies antibodies
  • General Vaccinations
  • Additional blood tests for dogs
  • Import Permit and quarantine reservation
  • Ten days quarantine from the US

One hundred and eighty (180) days must elapse from the date that the blood is sampled for the test (with a “passing” result) before your pet can enter quarantine in Australia.

Once the blood sample for the RNAT test is collected in an approved country, there is no requirement for the animal to remain 60 days or 90 days in the approved country and this period is not added to the period of PEQ. Once the animal has returned an acceptable RNAT test result of greater than or equal to 0.5 IU/ml, the animal can, prior to export from the approved country, travel to any country, however, all testing, treatments, and examinations required by the import permit conditions can only be completed in an approved country. Post-entry quarantine in Australia for dogs and cats is 10 days (minimum). 

Learn more about the specifics of moving your dog or cat to Australia by visiting the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources website, which discusses the topic. 

What we can do for you:

  • Make sure that all paperwork and vet work is correct
  • Obtain an Import Permit from Australia
  • Book the quarantine facility in Australia
  • Complete final veterinary certificates and get them endorsed by the USDA
  • Flea and tick treatment
  • Book your pet's flight to Australia
  • Have the quarantine station meet your pet upon arrival
  • Deliver your pet to you after the 10 days of quarantine, if needed

Most of the pet owners whose pets we transport to Australia will move there while their pet awaits the end of the waiting period. Starwood will take good care of your pet and move your pet safely.
