Export of Dogs and Cats to Australia
All required information for exporting cats and dogs into Australia is available on the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) website. Close attention must be paid to the logistics of the process, particular time constraints, fees, and quarantine requirements that are applicable to your particular situation.
An import permit must be obtained from the AQIS prior to entry into the country. If any part of the documentation is deemed unsatisfactory by Australian officials, there is a risk of the following: extra disease testing by the AQIS, an extended quarantine stay, declined entry of the animal into the country, or destruction of the animal - all at the expense of the owner.
