Pets to Europe

Many pets travel from Australia and New Zealand to Europe every week.

At AirCare Pets we have a full range of services for tranporting your pets to all major destinations throughout Europe.


We can transport your pet to all the major countries/airports in Western Europe. Destinations include:

  • France
  • Germany
  • Austria
  • Switzerland
  • Netherlands
  • Belgium
  • Ireland
  • Denmark
  • Norway
  • Sweden
  • Finland
  • Poland
  • Slovakia
  • Czech Republic
  • Spain
  • Portugal
  • Italy
  • Greece
  • Croatia
  • Serbia

And more....

Our associates in the major European hub airports can clear you pets through  Customs and deliver by road or send on Inter-City flights to most airports throughout Europe.


The import of pets to all European countries is controlled by the inter country agreement with the European Union. Dogs and cats arriving from New Zealand are checked by the official vets on arrival and issued a Pet Passport which allows the pet to travel on later trips in to, and out of, mainland Europe without further compliance issues.

All pets must have a current Rabies vaccination. In general this vaccination must be fully documented by a registered NZ vet with the microchip numbered verified before administering the vaccine. The Vaccine must be administered at least 21 days before departure and not be older than 36 months. Check with our pet transport consultants for the latest details.

Treatments for internal and external parasites are required for dogs before travel. Talk to us first to ensure the treatments and timing are fully compliant with the UK entry requirements. We will undertake this work as part of the export process if requested.

An official Export Certificate is provided by the Ministry of Primary Industries the day before travel. This document is prepared by us, and we will present your pets to the Government vet for final verification of all details. Talk to your AirCare Pets Travel Consultant about the requirements and timelines for your pet's travel plans. We send advance copies of these documents to the European destination to ensure the destination airport is fully aware of your pet's arrival.

Customer Experience

Louis to Paris

Dear Shelley

Louis landed as per schedule in Paris this morning and he was over the moon to see us.

He looked and behaved as per his usual + the extra excitement and relief that he was reunited with us. Actually, we had never seen him that happy for that long! It was delightful and a big relief for us too.

So MANY, MANY thanks for your care and help to get him ready, packed and shipped!

All the very best,

Isabelle and Paul

Louise in France
