Export Pets to Australia

We can assist you with all the veterinary and administrative pre-export preparation of your pets for export to Australia.  
The Australian import requirements for dogs and cats being exported to Australia changed in 2014. Previously, it was required that they spend six months in a pre-export quarantine facility, undergoing various tests, treatments and examinations to prepare them for export to Australia. Now, the good news is that the new pre-export protocol does not include the necessity of keeping your pets in a quarantine facility before they leave South Africa. It must be noted however, that there are still several tests, treatments and examinations required before they are eligible for export. They also require an Australian import permit, and they will need to spend a minimum of 10 days in a post-export quarantine facility in Australia after they leave South Africa.
