Pet Carriers to the Netherlands

Find out about the professionals who can ensure your pet is fit and ready to make the journey to the Netherlands...

It is essential to ensure that the pet is eligible to travel not only to or from the Netherlands but also any other countries it may pass through.

The animal will have to travel in an approved container. This does not apply if travelling by car within the EU.

The container must be big enough for the animal to stand, sit and turn during the journey. It must allow adequate ventilation. Some airlines allow small pets to travel as hand baggage on flights of 10 hours or less, also in an approved container. There is usually a maximum limit of two animals travelling in the cabin with a single owner, The regulations on carrier size as well as the policies on carrying pets in the cabin vary between airlines. It is recommended to contact the airline directly before booking.

Animals flying into the UK or Hong Kong cannot fly in the cabin and must travel in the hold as cargo. If any in-hold journey is longer than a few hours, food and drink may need to be supplied.

Where To Arrive

If an animal is being transported from a country not on the list of rabies-compliant signatories, animals may only arrive via an approved entry point after following a full rabies treatment.
