Taking pets to the EU
Pet passports issued in the UK are no longer valid. To take your pet to the EU or Northern Ireland, you will need to complete a few steps.
Your pet must be microchipped, have proof of current rabies vaccination and have a valid animal health certificate (AHC).
Some countries require dogs to have undergone tapeworm treatment for travel.
An AHC can be issued by your pet's vet. It may take a few days to process, so the government recommends applying for your pet's AHC at least one month before you plan to travel.
