Pet Transportation to Australia
It’s important that you have the necessary veterinary requirements in order for pet transportation to Australia. We take care of that long and tedious process so that your furry friend won’t encounter any issues when entering the country. Any mistake in a vaccination date or a passport signature can lead to delays that will further extend the journey.
Among all the possible destinations, Australia is one of the most stringent countries, which is why it doesn’t allow entry for the following dog breeds: Brazilian Fila, Japanese Tosa, Argentine Dogo, Pit Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull, and Presa Canario. This information is updated and varies each year.
Arrival Airports for Pet Transportation to Australia
For flights from Spain, some of our departure airports for pet transportation to Australia are Madrid and Barcelona, but we also have connections with the main airports in the Peninsula, Balearic Islands, and the Canary Islands.
If your city is not on the list, there’s no need to worry. At BaggagePets, we can also provide you with a ground transportation service, picking up your pet from your home or the location where your pet is, and transporting them to one of the main airports in the country. We often offer this type of service as many clients don’t have the specialized transport required to move certain breeds or sizes of animals to the airport.
Regarding the airports we can transport your pet to in Australia, we currently offer these options:
There have been cases where clients needed to transport their pets to a city distant from these main airports. Therefore, we also provide interior transportation services in Australia, covering a large part of the country.
These are the only airports where airlines that accept animals operate. If you need to transport your best friend, trust our pet transportation service to Australia.
