New Rules For Pet Passports

Great news for pet owners, from January 1st new regulations have been introduced for pet passports. Previously, owners have been required to wait six months for a rabies blood test certificate before their beloved pets to be returned to the UK, however the new regulations mean the animal can now be eligible to travel from just 21 days after vaccination.

Many people who rent long term on the Costa del Sol have dogs and cats so its excellent news that owners now have more freedom to easily bring them with them and take them back to the UK at will.

The animal will still be micro-chipped before receiving the EU combination vaccination and be provided with a tag to indicate your pet has been vaccinated. The new requirements for tapeworm treatment is yet to be confirmed but it is expected that dogs must be treated no less than 24hrs and no more than 120hrs before arriving in the UK. Hopefully this will reduce the amount of pets being abandoned as owners will be able to collect them more quickly.
