Moving pets from NZ to Australia is so commonplace for us it often gets overlooked on our blog! Relocating pets to Australia is a simple destination for international pet travel because there are no quarantine requirements for New Zealand pets. Yes you can travel on the same flight to Australia as your pet but it will need to be a morning flight on one of the following airlines: Virgin, Air New Zealand or Qantas.. You should discuss this with your consultant prior to booking flights because your pet and their paperwork need to arrive during customs clearance business hours on the same day.
Moving pets from NZ to Australia with us means you can fly your pets direct to: Perth, Adelaide, Cairns, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Coolangatta. Darwin and Canberra are possible with connecting flights. Hobart has no customs clearance facility for pets in Tasmania so your pets must do customs clearance at Melbourne. For any other location not listed above, you can either organise your NZ pets' onward travel from one of the main airports or use the help of one of our expert agents in Australia. Certain ports wont accept pets or large cages so please discuss with your pet transport consultant.
Entry requirements for relocating pets to Australia: your pet must be at least 8wks, be microchipped, and within 5 days of departure be issued with a Pet Health Export Certificate. This usually involves a tick flea worm treatment 3 or 4days preflight. Vaccinations are a vet issue and their own definition of pet health. Some vets require vaccinations, some don't. Talk to your consultant if you would like a vet recommended to you or if you have lost your pet health book. If your current council registration has expired, you don't need to renew it before flying. Pet registration is not a requirement.
If you would like to go on holiday with your pets we can apply for a short-stay, 30days visa and they wont have to do a blood test to re-enter New Zealand! Win!
