Planning to take your pet on holiday outside of the UK? You’ll need a pet passport.

What’s a pet passport?

It’s a small blue book (similar to your own passport), which contains information such as your pet’s microchip number, vaccinations, blood tests, and tick and worm treatment given. You don’t have to include a photo, although there is a space for you to add one if you wish.

The passport doesn’t expire, you just need to have regular rabies vaccinations to keep it valid (usually every three years).

How to get a pet passport:

Your pet needs to be:

  • At least 3 months of age
  • Have a microchip
  • Vaccinated against rabies

Make an appointment to see a vet and we’ll help you get started.

You also need to be aware that:

Your dog(s) need to be given a tapeworm treatment from a registered vet (within the country you’re visiting) between 24 and 120 hours before you re-enter the UK. This needs to be certified within the pet passport.


We also recommend that you have your pets treated for ticks before traveling abroad; talk to us about this when you get your passport.
