Pet Transport Import Services

Relocating to New Zealand and want to ensure your 4 legged family member doesn’t miss out? Moving home with an extra “furry” family member? Already living in New Zealand and want to bring a prized dog or bitch into the country?

With a long set of protocols to follow to satisfy the New Zealand government importing a pet into New Zealand can be a tricky exercise.Overseas countries are broken down into different categories which determine the pre arrival requirements for pets to entry into New Zealand.In the majority of cases, there is going to be a 3 month minimum wait before the pet can enter New Zealand and be eligible for the 10 days in quarantine.

There are some exceptions to the rule with pets coming from Australia not requiring quarantine and in turn the requirements are equally minimal. This means pets from Australia can enter New Zealand with a minimum of fuss in a short space of time.
