Moving Pets to Australia

NZ and Australia have a special arrangement for Pets traveling from NZ.

  • All Pets must be microchipped and be seen by a MPI Vet within 5 days of departure.
  • MPI vets will check all documents, the pet's ID and will check the cage is for suitable to travel.
  • Then your Pet will be flea/wormed as per Australian government requirements and a numbered export certificate is issued.

Travel Cage Requirements

To ensure comfort and to meet requirements all pets must be able to stand up in the transport cage. When standing, their nose to base of tail must not be touching the cage and head must not be touching the roof of crate.

Our team will guide you through what crate to use - we sell Airline Approved Pet Transport Cages for International Pet Transport.

If you source a crate yourself - please refer to the diagram below for sizing:

Please note:

  • Any Pet bedding you may want to send (jersey, t-shirt, towel / bed mat) must not affect your pets ability to stand up and turn around.
  • Transport Cost is based on space taken up in the aircraft - not weight.
  • All pets are required to be microchipped for any international travel.
