Pet Travel Scheme (PETS)

Farnborough Airport understands the importance for pets to travel safely with their owners.  With this in mind, the airport has a dedicated Pet Travel Support Officer on-site.

Liz Shickle, previously worked as a Veterinary Officer in the Government Veterinary Services for 30 years. She has been involved in dealing with the Pet Travel Scheme since its inception in 2000.

The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet Dogs, Cats and Ferrets to return to or enter the UK from around the world without quarantine as long as they comply with the PETS requirements.

Our aim is to make the approval of PETS movements through Farnborough Airport quicker and easier.

The requirements for pet travel are summarised on the GOV.UK website:

Since the UK left the EU the GB Pet Passport is no longer valid to travel to the EU including Ireland, Switzerland, Norway and Northern Ireland. To go to these countries pets with a GB Pet Passport or no Pet Passport should have an Animal Health Certificate issued by an Official Veterinarian within 10 days of travel along with the support paperwork for the Microchip implant and Rabies vaccination.

An Echinococcus tapeworm treatment is now needed before travelling to Ireland, Finland, Malta, Norway, and Northern Ireland.

PETS questions and notification should be sent directly to Liz on: / 07741 255 604 / 01252 379041
