At Ferndale Kennels, we specialise in providing tailor-made pet relocation services, ensuring a seamless and hassle-free experience for your furry friends. In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the process, regulations, and our range of services designed to meet your specific needs.
Navigating the Pet Relocation Process in Macau
Understanding the Pet Relocation Routes and Regulations
Relocating your pets to or from Macau requires an understanding of the various routes and regulations involved. Whether you’re moving from Macau to Hong Kong or China, from Hong Kong or China to Macau, or transiting through Hong Kong to any other international destination, each scenario entails specific requirements and permits from both the Macau and Hong Kong authorities.
The Role of Hong Kong International Airport in Macau Pet Relocation
Macau Airport has restrictions on pets being transported as cargo, making Hong Kong International Airport the primary hub for pet shipments in and out of Macau. Pets entering or leaving Macau commonly transit through Hong Kong, necessitating the procurement of a Hong Kong government AFCD pet transit permit. This additional step ensures a smooth and compliant pet relocation process.
AFCD Escort and Hostel Facility
To guarantee the safety and well-being of pets during the relocation process, the Agriculture, Fisheries, and Conservation Department (AFCD) in Hong Kong provides an escort service for pets at Hong Kong customs.
Pets in transit or awaiting further transport are either accompanied by AFCD personnel or housed in the AFCD facility hostel. This measure ensures the care and comfort of pets throughout the journey.
