This is the link for the PET scheme in the UK defra.gov.uk/animalh/quarantine/index.htm.
I am currently in the process of exporting my dog the UK. It’s quite alot of paper work, I think if I were to do it again I might hire a pet transporter.
It’s complicated for the UK because although Taiwan is a country in the PETS, you can’t fly direct, because that’s not an approved route. The dog’s flight has to start on an approved route…still with me? I have to buy the dog a ticket to HK then a separate ticket HK to London. This means sorting an export permit for TW, an import permit for HK, then an export permit for HK. Oh and BA is the only carrier that is allowed to carry pets on the PETS. As of Oct 06 BA will no longer be the carrier, this means the HK to London route is out. Animals would have to go via Japan or another listed country. It’s also quite expensive £275 and that’s just the PETS processing fee that’s without the permits and cargo cost. I can’t get a straight answer out of BA cargo, and I have tried. They have sent me the carges and I had to work it out myself. At the moment it’s working out at £1115 for everything apart from permits. ( dog 24kg cage 18 kg, cage 101x75.5x68)
It’s totally worth it and I would never be without my Bozo! But damn he has to be the most expensive stray in the world! Thank God LBD is alot smaller he’ll be much cheaper!
When all is sorted will post a detailed plan of action for dogs to the UK. If there’s anything else just ask.
