Documentation for animals travelling internationally
All countries require veterinary preparation that can take a different amount of time and commitment e.g. preparation for taking pets into EU countries takes 3 to 4 months, where preparation for pets into USA can take up to 21 days.
We recommend that you provide us with copies of your pet’s veterinary documentation as soon as possible so we can advise you what requirements you have to meet to be able to export or import your pet
How we do the health clearance
Your pet will be taken to your private veterinarian, who will certify that your pet is fit to travel and complies with the destination countries requirements.
This gets done in the week the pet travels, once the private has issued the animal with a health certificate Pets 2 Go Int will collect to deliver to State Vet for an official signature and stamp.

How to choose a pet travel container
It is important to choose the correct size of the travel kennel for your beloved. The box cannot be too small or too large. Your pet should be able to comfortably stand up, lie down and turn around in its box.
We recommend that you measure your pet so we can select the right size of its travel container. Please follow the guidelines below in order to provide us with your pets’ correct measurements.
If you are purchasing your own travel kennel please bear in mind to allow room for a blanket and a water bowl.
