Moving Your Pet Dogs and Cats

Find out how to prepare your pets for life in the Netherlands...

  • The European Pet Passport (EU Pet Passport) allows for qualifying domestic animals (dogs, cats and ferrets) to freely cross borders in Europe. There is not yet a union-wide standard for other animals, so local laws will apply.
  • The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) provides for qualifying domestic pets to travel to and from the UK without undergoing quarantine.

Pet travel laws can be affected by exceptional outbreaks of disease.
