Pets are an important part of the family. Whether they’re on four legs or two, we know it’s essential to relocate your entire family to your new destination.
No matter where you’re moving to, OSS can assist with moving your pets if in conjunction with a Household move, by partnering with Australia’s leading experts in pet transport, who have been moving tens of thousands of pets a year for over 30 years. Their staff will work round-the-clock to help you bring little Archie or Clio with you to your new home abroad.
Transport considerations will vary according to your destination, of course. Some countries have quarantine requirements, which our international pet transport services can help you understand and navigate.
If your flight is to or through the Middle East, you’ll be contending with daily temperatures soaring to 45C in August and thus seasonal restrictions on pet travel. Some other warm-weather locales also restrict travel of certain breeds, like pugs, which might struggle to breathe in the heat. These and other restrictions you’ll encounter may seem arbitrary, but ensuring pet safety is the top priority for airlines and international pet transport services alike.
If you’re heading to a country with a high burden of documentation, somewhere in the European Union, for example, you’ll need to start early and get your paperwork and vet appointments scheduled.
Finally, some countries may require translated copies of your pet’s documents, so you’ll need to allow time for this requirement, too, should it pertain.
No matter how overwhelming the pet relocation process may seem, we know your family’s beloved pet is worth it. So whether you’ll be flying your furbaby in the cabin or as checked baggage, we’re going to help you sort out every one of little Willow or Charlie’s travel details.
