Woody is a wonderful cat we moved to Sydney from Auckland this week. He enjoyed posing for pre-flight pics in our offices at Auckland Airport, showing off his beautiful differently coloured eyes before curling up to sleep in his travel crate. Moving pets to Australia? This cat moved to Sydney in his sleep.
He sailed through pet travel certification at Ministry of Primary Industries before jetting off to Australia from New Zealand. As professional pet couriers, we take each international shipment seriously. From the moment your travelling pets leave us at Auckland Airport, we are awaiting your overseas updates.
Moving to Australia, all in a days work for this NZ cat, his humans sent us these from Sydney, NSW: "Woody arrived safe and sound a few hours after us. Pick up was very smooth. Here is him getting some well deserved rest after his voyage. He was snoring at the time. Thank you for all your help!"
Well done Woody! If you are moving with pets to Australia, contact the only NZ pet courier based at Auckland Airport. You just drop your cats and dogs here, right between Domestic and International terminals on your way to board your own flight! Contact an Australian pet travel consultant here.
When taking a dog to Australia, everyone wants to know how much it costs. Unlike relocating humans, with one-size-fits-all seat prices; airfares for moving pets to Australia vary greatly. How much it costs to fly your dog depends on their destination, the breed and the size of the dog you are transporting.
For Baxter the Boxer, Pet Transport organised his travel cage and flights to Melbourne from Auckland Airport. A male boxer costs more than a female fox terrier due to the volumetric weight calculation all airlines use to price flying your pet overseas. This includes the height and weight of the dog you are taking to Australia. It also measures the amount of space your pets travel cage will occupy on board.
The good news for any pet flights across the ditch: destinations in Australia are the cheapest. We fly dogs from New Zealand to Australian airports multiple times a day, every day of the week. You'll be pleased to hear taking a dog to Australia is not too much more than human flights. Why not chat with one of our Pet Transport travel consultants to get a free quote tailored to your dogs measurements?
Pet Transport from New Zealand to Australia is where we rack up our frequent flyer miles. Kiwis often move to Australia with their pets - most days of the week actually! Most of our pet lovers who travel to Australia with their cats and dogs will return at some point. Moving pets to Australia from New Zealand is pretty straightforward. Flying pets back to New Zealand from Australia is also fairly simple.
If your pet has flown to New Zealand from Australia before, and is now heading back over the Tasman, you will need a copy of your BACC. The Biosecurity Authority Customs Clearance certificate is given to every pet arriving to New Zealand. Pets returning to Australia must have this document at their MPI Australian Export Certificate appointment.
Contact us for a sample version, or get help requesting a misplaced copy, we're happy to help!
