Changes to Pet Passport post Britexit

Post by the wife » 02 Oct 2018, 20:50

Hi
we are the proud owners of a super giant male who loves his holidays travelling through France and Europe, but all this is set to change post britexit.
Holders of UK registered Pet Passports will not be able to travel throught Europe.
The EU have stated they may impose 4 day quarantine both on entry and exit from the EU plus pets will have to be imported and exported with the correct documents up to 4 months in advance. Defra have confirmed the UK Pet Passport will finish upon Britexit with no plans in place to replace it. We have started a petition aimed at the EU to bring this to everyone's attention, if you want the link please private message me. This is causing us and our pet a lot of distress.

If this is true, this isn't great news for me either as we take our two over to Austria, which we love doing. Don't get me wrong, I am sure there are loads of great places in the UK to holiday with your dog but cutting off mainland Europe for pet holidays isn't great :(

There are some details on this link which may mean the final outcome re the passports is not yet certain:

See Below ,This is the reason for starting the petition, plus I have also emailed Mr Juncker to explain the impact on our pets and peoples business etc and are waiting for a response. Might be a good idea if other schnauzer owners who feel strongly about not being able to take there pet on holiday etc with out vast expense, paperwork and worry could do the same or PM me for a link to my petition!

The EU European Commission president has also said a four-day quarantine may be imposed on pet dogs and cats passing from the UK to continental Europe and again on their return journey.
Speaking at a public meeting in Freiburg, Germany, Mr Juncker said now they just pass through the customs, all these dogs and cats coming to mainland Europe each year.
'There are lots of people in Europe who just want people and animals to just cross borders, but I think we are going to have a four-day quarantine.
'If you want to go to Brittany for eight days for holidays, then maybe you need to leave the dog or cat at home, or maybe you will stay home altogether.'

Where is the petition? Of course I will sign! This has nothing to do with trade or health. It is sheer cussedness.

Just received the response from President Juncker stating the EU legal requirement on movement of Pets entering the EU post Britexit,(direct from the horses mouth) see information and link below,
On the issue of the pet passport, please note that once the UK is no longer a Member State, the rules for non-commercial movements of animals coming from third countries will apply. You can find all available information as regards the movement of pet animals from non-EU countries into the Union on the following website: https://ec.europa.eu/food/animals/pet-m ... -non-eu_en

I am still waiting for Derfa response regarding the British requirement on re-entering the UK from the EU .

Re the UK it all depends on the nature of any deal and, if no deal, which category of country Britain is placed in:

We can all hope the UK will obtain a deal which will allow our pets to travel with ease through out the EU, but I don't believe this will be on the top of list at present!
If any one is interested in the full response from President Juncker which makes interesting reading please PM.
