Where does the UK stand now as far as Pet Travel to EU goes?
As of January 1st 2021, UK Pet Passports are no longer going to be accepted for animals travelling from the UK to EU countries. You can still use an existing Pet Passport, if this was issued outwith the UK and is up to date, to:
a) Return back to the UK if you are abroad in the EU after Jan 1st 2021.
b) To travel onwards from current EU member states to other EU member states after January 1st 2021 (not the UK).
If you are wanting to take your pet abroad after January 1st 2021 then you will need a new Animal Health Certificate (AHC).
It is your responsibility to check the latest requirements for your destination and method of travel. Some countries require a vet wellness check in addition to the AHC, which can be carried out at the same appointment.
**Animals travelling to Northern Ireland from England, Wales and Scotland will also require an AHC to travel.**
