Understanding the Regulations for Pet Travel in the Philippines

Moving a pet to another country involves navigating various rules and regulations. Each country has different rules, and it’s important to understand them before you move forward.

When it comes to relocating your pets to the Philippines, there are specific requirements that must be met before they can enter the country. These regulations are in place to ensure the safety and well-being of your pets as they embark on their journey to the Philippines.

They also ensure the safety of the animals already in the country, as it limits illnesses and diseases that are able to cross the borders.

Microchips and Veterinary Examinations

Before your pets can embark on their flight, they need to have microchips implanted for identification purposes. If you and your pet get separated, then the chip is a universal indicator that can reunite you.

Detailed veterinary examinations are also mandatory to ensure that your pets are healthy and fit for travel. These examinations are essential to confirm that your pets are free from any contagious diseases that could pose a risk to other animals or humans during transit.

Your vet will be able to provide a health certificate to show that they are healthy and fit for travel before they’re able to board the plane.

Requirements for Dogs and Cats

Before transporting pets to Philippines, it is necessary to administer the C3 vaccine and Leptospirosis vaccine for dogs with at least 14 days of gap before arriving in the Philippines. Similarly, for cats, the F3 vaccine should be given at least 14 days before travelling. Your pet should be treated against internal and external parasites before departure. Finally, veterinary inspection and paperwork finalisation should also be completed before shipping a pet to the Philippines.

Flexible Travel Options for Pets

We understand that every pet owner’s situation is unique. Some individuals prefer to travel with their pets on the same plane, while others may have different travel arrangements or specific requirements. At Ferndale Kennels, we cater to a range of scenarios to accommodate your needs and ensure a smooth relocation process for both you and your furry companions.

This might mean ensuring that your pet can travel on the same flight as you, or booking them onto a separate flight later so you can go ahead and get your new home prepared for them.

There are also a couple of options when your pet enters the plane. Pets may be able to travel as extra baggage, meaning there’s a compartment in the hold specifically designed for them to remain comfortable throughout the flight.

If this area is full or your pet is particularly large, they may still be able to travel as live cargo. This is a little more cost-effective and means that your dog or cat will be logged on the manifest and traceable in case they’re lost.

Pet Travel from the Philippines

Apart from helping pet owners relocate their animals to the Philippines, we also facilitate the transportation of animals if you are travelling from the Philippines to Hong Kong or Singapore. However, due to the classification of the Philippines as a Category 3 country regarding rabies, dogs and cats arriving in Hong Kong must undergo 120 days of quarantine upon arrival. Hong Kong does not require a Rabies blood test for dogs and cats from the Philippines. Our team is experienced in handling such cases and can guide you through the necessary procedures to ensure a seamless transition for your pets. We can also set your pets up in a facility that allows you to visit. This means you won’t need to live without them for the full 4 months before they’re released. For pets going from the Philippines to Singapore, the quarantine is less; dog and cat quarantine is 30 days, as the Singapore government categorize the Philippines as Category D pet imports. Singapore needs these pets to do a Rabies antibody test (RNATT).

Travellers departing from the Philippines with their beloved pets to other destinations must be aware of the varying regulations in different countries. For instance, if you’re travelling to countries like the United States, Canada, or European countries, there are typically specific requirements for pet importation, including microchipping, rabies vaccination, and a health certificate issued by a licensed veterinarian. These requirements may vary depending on the destination country and should be thoroughly researched and complied with to ensure a smooth journey for you and your furry companion.

On the other hand, proper planning is important to ensure the safety and well-being of your pet. Consulting a pet relocation agency like Ferndale Kennels can provide valuable guidance and assistance if you are transporting your pet from the Philippines to various destinations around the world.
