What does my pet need prior to travelling to Australia?

Wednesday, Sep 26, 2012

  • Your pet must have been in New Zealand for at least 90 days prior to travel or have been here since birth – vet records can be proof of this.
  • Your pet is at least 8 weeks old at the time of transport
  • Your dog must not be one of the following breeds: Pit Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull, Japanese Tosa, Fila Brazilier, Dogo Argentino or Presario Canario.
  • Your dog must never have lived in Africa
  • A registered MAF vet must complete an export certificate within 72 hours of travel
  • Your dog must be up to date with its vaccinations and be microchipped

Please note for other countries such as the UK, rabies vaccinations must also be completed at least 21 days prior to your pets travel.

We trust the team at K9 Heaven with our Boxer Frank.  He's a high energy dog and the only time we ever see him tuckered out is after a full on day at K9 Heaven!  K9 Heaven brings out the best qualities in Frank and we highly recommend K9 Heaven to other dog owners.

I just love it at K9 Heaven!  I go swimming, on bush walks with my other friends, and I run around and play.  Im 16 months old now and I still go to play and socialise with my friends.  I'm so lucky cos it's not fun being at home by myself.  Matt and the team are so cool.
