    Smile Air Travel with My Dog

    Im travelling to Brisbane with my dog from New Zealand (Wellington) and was just wondering if anyone could help me. I own a Golden Retriever and since we're going to live in AUS we, of course, need to bring her! Since she's my first dog i dont know the procedure or anything, so can you help me with that? Whats the procedure, what documentation do i need, is there anything important i should know?

    Thanks so much !

    It is not so easy,ashas mum, your dog will need to go into quarantine for a month at least, I think you will find the nearest to you will be Sydney, so she would have to go there and stay there then fly to you in Brisbane after release, it will be very expensive as well expect it to cost over $1,000 may be more

    Um, actually that is not correct. There are no quarantine procedures for dogs coming into Australia from NZ. They are exempt from requiring the usual overseas permits.

    Contact the AQIS (Australian Quarantine Inspection Service) and they will be able to give you all the details pertaining to what must be done piror to flying your dog into Aus from NZ.

    Oooh, windy Wellington. Just kidding. And welcome to the forum.

    Here is a link to the AQIS website where you can download the relevant info about import from NZ.

    Should have checked that, pleased you both knew better, just went on info from over ten years ago when a friend wanted to bring his dog back after taking him over for a couple of years work and could not afford to do so because of tests and I am sure he said it had to do quarantine at that time, wonder if NZ has joined the pet passport thing or just relaxed laws ?
