Our company Travel Pets Ltd is one of the oldest pet relocation companies in Hong Kong.  We export  thousands of dogs and cats over the last 8 years to all over the world satisfying the tremendous need for the Pet Relocation industry.  Over the years, Pet relocation has been easier to meet other countries' requirements because Hong Kong is free of rabies.  Since the worldwide arrival of Covid 19 in 2019,  it is getting more difficult to find an airline to go to whatever country due to limited flights.


On the other hand, Pet Relocation couldn’t be easier if you use the services of our company, Travel Pets Ltd.  When you decide what country you and your family (including your pets) want to immigrate to, we can give you a personal tailor-made journey for your pet relocation.  And you will have the ability to monitor each step of the process.


 According to the worldwide pet relocation regulations of various countries, Hong Kong is a place with low risk of rabies.  In other words, all countries welcome the import of cats and dogs from Hong Kong.  However many different countries have different entry requirements that need to be taken into consideration.   In addition, due to the impact of COVID virus on the global aviation industry, pet transportation may not be possible to fly directly from Hong Kong to the destination country of your choice.  


We can arrange pet transportation to some countries to accommodate certain  flight or land transportation to reach the final destination. With the help of our trusted partners,  we have an excellent rapport with pet movers all over the world to assist us in most major countries.

Our company's purpose is high transparency, reasonable price, and flexibility to deal with each different cases as our ultimate goal.


Is Pet Transportation safe?
Before we move on to your pet relocation journey, we absolutely will check to see if the pet has any hidden disease that could be a concern to hinder your pet's travel.  To do so, our qualified pet movers team will take it to our experience vet to do a free body check.  The vet will give you details of your pets health status and determine if it’s suitable to travel with short distance or long distance flight for your pet transportation.  Also of great importantance is to look at the age of your pets. The vet will also take into consideration if your pet is older, if so,  our pet movers team might break down its long distance journey.  Our experienced pet movers team will specialize each  journey within a short distance each day until it gets to the final destination.


Does pet transportation or pet relocation need ISO microchip to go to EU country?
The answer is yes.  For my last 12 years of experience, some of the EU countries don't have the AVID scanner that is necessary to read the Hong Kong microchip and this might cause major issues to clear custom.  For all pet transportation or pet relocations our pet movers team will put ISO microchip implanted into your pet.


Is your  pet allowed in the cabin during pet transportation or pet relocation?
KLM, Air French, Lufthansa, and Korean airline do allow pets in the cabin during pet relocation and pet transportation.  You have to use soft pet travel bags, pet travel bag and pet together must under 8kg.  Travel bag size cannot exceed 46cm wide.  


What do you need to prepare for your pet relocation or pet transportation to other country?
No matter what countries your pets are going to, rabies vaccines, annual vaccines, rabies titer test(for some country), internal and external parasites(for some countries), and health certificate are necessary.   Vet health check before travel is also important as first step.  Learn the import requirements of the country.  Contact as many airlines as you can  to find the most suitable airline for this journey.  Have the travel kennel ready few months in advance so that your pets can get used to the travel kennel.  Apply import permit for the overseas country in advance.  As soon as you know your pet travel day, book quarantine in advance to make sure the destination country is aware of your pets arrival.  Make sure all vaccines are up to date.


How do you manage if your pets are under medication?
Because it is very important for pets to take medicine on time, but because the departure time does not match the normal timetable for taking medication.  We will try our best to arrange the departure time to different airlines to get as close to the timetable as possible.  After the pet arrives, if the time for the next medication has passed too long, we can arrange a connecting flight and have a pet transportation agent to give the  pets the required medication during the transfer process.


Why do you need a Pet Mover or a Pet Relocation company to help you relocate your pets?
As qualified, reliable Pet Movers, we will meet all the import requirements to the desired country of your choice.  A Pet Movers must be able to find the best suitable airline for your pet journey.  A Pet Movers must provide you with accurate details of your pet relocation journey.


Why do we get our rabies vaccine from our government instead of a clinic for your pets future pet transportation?
Our government AFCD does not accept rabies vaccine for several countries that require that the pets must leave Hong Kong for over 6 months.


How much money do I need to get my pet relocated to another country?
Different countries have different import requirements, USA, Canada, and EU countries only require fully vaccination and health certificate which cost about $3000.
Singapore and Indonesia required additional rabies titer test which cost about $6000.
Australia, New Zealand, takes 7 months for the process and require 10 days quarantine and many blood tests.  It cost about HKD20000 to set it up.


Is rabies vaccine safe?
There is always a small risk of side of effects from all the vaccines.  But for my over 10 years of experience, no dogs or cats have experienced any side effect symptoms after taken rabies vaccines.  But for dogs during pregnancy, the vet will not recommend taking any vaccines, it might harm the puppies.  


Can you relocate your pets to other country if they have kidney disorder, heart disease, or any symptoms of sickness?
A few days before your pets leave for your destination  country, the vet will examine their health issue to determine if they are fit to travel.  As long as your pet doesn’t have any disease that could pass to other animals which should allow the pets to fly. If your pets has kidney disorder, heart disease, or any sickness issues, the vet will examine his actual situation to decide whether it is suitable for a long journey. 


Can you import rabbits, hamster, turtles, snakes, chinchilla, or ornamental fish into Hong Kong?
Hong Kong allows small animals such as rabbits, hamsters, turtles, snakes, chinchilla, or Ornamental fish to enter Hong Kong.


Are dogs and cats safe to fly in summer with high temperatures?
In fact, whether it is safe to transport your pets in high temperatures its depends entirely on how you arrange it.  We will arrange for them to be transported to the airport in a air-conditioned environment from the moment they leave your doorstep on the day of the flight to another country.  After arriving at the airport, the airport staff will follow the whole process and will not expose your pets to the outdoors.  The airplane cargo area has space created for animals only,.  The temperature and light are moderate for animals.


Do you need to feed your pets before departure?
All airlines suggest not to give any food 12 hours before take off.  The reason is because if the pets have eaten too much before boarding and after a long journey, they will have a lot of urine and feces in the travel box when they arrived.  This might cause bacteria growth and odor problems.  In fact, I personally recommend that if it is a short flight and depart from Hong Kong to Southeast Asian countries, you can give a small amount of food before flying.  An adult pets should hold their urine and feces for about 10 hours.  
However, if it is a long distance  flight, I personally suggest to avoid any food 10 hours before the take off, so as to avoid the spread of bacteria after arrival.  Of course, you must ask the veterinarian to consult your pet's health issues before making any fasting.
