Removals Spain To UK - What About The Pets?

Removals Spain to UK and vice versa is all about being organised and ensuring that every member of the family is accounted for. That includes the pets that you want to take with you on your international move. What is the best way to transport pets out of the country?

Companies that specialise in removals to Spain and removals from Spain to UK will not be able to take your pets for you when they pack up the rest of your home. They cannot transport dogs, cats, rabbits, or even caged birds. Fish tanks can be transported, but only if they are already emptied. So you will need to arrange for alternative transport for your pet. The actual transportation of the animals is fairly simply; most can be taken on planes and flown to Spain in the cargo hold. However, there is a lot of paperwork and documentation that needs to be dealt with first you cannot simply turn up at the airport and check your pet in like a suitcase! Spain operates under the European Pet Travel Scheme (PETS), which means that any pet will not need to be quarantined. This makes the process much quicker as long as your pet is fitted with a valid microchip (to ISO standard 11784 or 11785) and has their vaccinations up to date, with proof of this. They also need to have a pet passport which is issued by the vet when they are vaccinated. On top of this, for removals to Spain they will also have to have an EU vet health certificate, and be insured.
