Travelling with my pet

Q.We are planning to travel abroad soon, and want to take our pets along. We haven’t travelled with our pets before and don’t even know where to start.

A. The first question you need to ask yourself is whether your pets are microchipped and vaccinated, especially against rabies. It is a South African requirement that all pets leaving the country must have a microchip. It is also a great place to start as different countries have different regulations, but with the above basics done, your specific travel schedule can be tailored easier.

Planning time to travel

Q. How long in advance do I need to start planning if I want to take my pet with me overseas?

A. We always recommend as much notice as possible. Remember, each country has different requirements and if you leave it too late, you may find that Fido will have to spend a bit of time in boarding to sit out any waiting period.
