Pet Relocation to Macau: A Comprehensive Guide for a Safe and Stress-Free Journey

Are you planning to relocate your cherished pets to or from Macau? Pet relocation in Macau involves careful considerations and adherence to specific regulations. As Macau Airport is to small for sending many pets as cargo, most international pet shipments are routed through Hong Kong International Airport. This adds an additional layer of complexity to the process, including the need for a Hong Kong government AFCD pet transit permit. At Ferndale we specialize in 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


  1. Understanding the Pet Relocation Routes and Regulations:

When relocating your pets to or from Macau, it is crucial to understand the various routes and regulations involved. These can include 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 Macau and Hong Kong authorities.

  1. The Role of Hong Kong International Airport in Macau Pet Relocation:

Due to the restrictions on pets as cargo at Macau Airport, Hong Kong International Airport serves as the primary hub for pet shipments in and out of Macau. Pets entering or leaving Macau commonly transit through Hong Kong, which necessitates obtaining a Hong Kong government AFCD pet transit permit. This additional step ensures a smooth and compliant pet relocation process.

  1. AFCD Escort and Hostel Facility:

To ensure 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 guarantees the care and comfort of pets throughout the journey.
