Bringing Pets to Australia

Can I bring my pet to Australia?

This is more of a customs issue than an immigration law query and therefore sits outside of our area of expertise.

However, the Australian Department of Agriculture have a comprehensive website that can help you get the information you need about bringing your pet to Australia with you.

Importing a pet into Australia can be a long process that can take several months before the animal is able to clear customs and freely enter Australia. Different procedures are put in place for different countries, depending on where your pet is travelling from.
