As we know, Australia is not a simple destination. The particular ecosystem present in this magnificent country imposes very meticulous entry and exit checks for passengers – even for the four-legged ones. Nothing that is impossible, of course, however, it is necessary to take into account some information that may be absolutely useful in planning the transportation of pets from Italy to Australia.
More specifically, the “do it yourself” thing is not advisable for this destination, due to the fact that the entry veterinary procedures are very scrupulous and accurate, and the check of the paperwork is very painstaking. Let’s try to understand how the transfer of your dog (or any other pet) to Australia can be made.
Information on pet relocation from Italy to Australia
First piece of information to be borne in mind for the transportation of pets from Italy to Australia: in order to enter into Australia your pet must have an importation permit issued by the Australian Agricultural Department, the lacking of which will not allow your pet to access the country.
Second piece of information: especially by virtue of the Australian delicate environmental conditions, your pet, once he/she has landed on Australian soil, he/she must spend 10 days in quarantine at the Mickleham station, where he/she will be assisted by specialized personnel who will take good care of him/her.
Bringing pets to Australia: how should I organize his/her journey?
