1. Pets and other animals

Dogs, cats, ferrets and horses

You can bring your dog, cat or ferret into the UK without quarantine as long as they meet the rules of the Pet Travel Scheme (PETS).

There’s a similar scheme for horses.

Other animals

Other animals that are brought into the UK must have an import licence. They must also stay in quarantine for 6 months after arriving in the UK. You must pay the cost of this.

Non-native animals

There are rules you must follow when importing animals that aren’t native to the UK.
