Using Beltmann’s packers and movers also leaves you more time to deal with the logistics of your household, including making plans to move your pet. Here are our best tips for getting your pet safely to your new home:
Do your homework. Moving pets internationally means you’ll need to navigate two sets of laws and regulations. You can contact the international embassy to learn more about the specific laws you’ll need to follow.
Get your vet records. Generally, you’ll need to provide proof of ownership, and you may also be asked to provide proof of immunizations or licensing. Keep all your vet records organized and at hand throughout your move.
Research pet services in your new neighborhood. From finding a veterinarian to finding a store that sells special pet supplies, knowing where to go before you get there will give you and your pet peace of mind about the move. You’ll need to have an understanding of what resources are available to you and your pet in your new community before you get there.
Comparison-shop travel plans for your pet. Depending on the type of pet you have, some airlines or carriers may not be able to accommodate your needs, or some may charge extra for live animal moving. Identifying several possible travel plans for your pet gives you more data about which carriers can do the best job in helping your pet arrive in your new country safely.
