The days of long quarantine are over. These days, you’re free to take dogs, cats and ferrets to the Continent as long as a few basic requirements are fulfilled – so now the whole family can enjoy travelling with MyFerryLink for just £25 per pet.
You’ll need to get your faithful friend micro-chipped and it will need a pet passport with the chip number and dates of vaccinations. You will need to comply with these regulations before your pet can travel with MyFerryLink.
Please note that a maximum of 5 pets are permitted to travel per vehicle.
At check-in, your animal will need:
- To have a microchip (inserted before its anti-rabies vaccination)
- To have been vaccinated against rabies
- To have received a treatment against ticks and echinococcus and must be administered not less than 24 hours and not more than 120 hours before its scheduled arrival time in the UK
- An up-to-date pet passport
Please note, these rules vary depending on the type of pet and destination country, so please check the DEFRA site for the latest details.
Some of these requirements will need to be carried out well in advance of your travel, so please plan ahead.
Once aboard, your pet will stay in your car while you travel on the passenger decks. However guide dogs and assistance dogs are allowed to travel in the passenger areas.
