Taking Pet Cats and Dogs from Sri Lanka to Australia

Travelling with Pet Cats and Dogs from Sri Lanka to Australia

As per the current regulations set by the Government of Australia, it is not possible to transport your pet child directly from Sri Lanka to Australia as Sri Lanka has been classified as a Non-Approved country (High Risk Country). Nonetheless, the Government of Australia has prescribed a solution for pets travelling from Non-approved countries such as Sri Lanka to Australia.

We at Pet Express have safely transported so many pets from Sri Lanka to Australia during the past so many years. So rest assured.

Moving pets to Australia is a very complex process which involves a lot of blood tests and other veterinary requirements. If we are to explain the complex process in a nutshell; we need to start the process by microchipping the pet child and giving the primary rabies vaccine, we will wait for minimum of 30 days and then do an RNATT (Rabies Antibody Titer Test from an OIE approved Lab).

Upon getting satisfactory test results, the pet must stay in Sri Lanka for minimum of 135 days (the pet can stay at your residence or anywhere in Sri Lanka) before we transport your pet from Sri Lanka to an approved (Category 2 or 3) country i.e. Singapore. We highly recommend the services in Singapore in terms of service standards and professionalism.

During the stay in Singapore; your pet will be subject to vaccinations, a RNATT (second test), and few other blood tests for dogs as well. Your pet child will be required to stay in Singapore for approximately around 60+ days before we fly the pet from Singapore to Melbourne, Australia.

Please note that the pet will be required to stay at the Singapore Sembawang Animal Quarantine Station for the first 30 days during the aforementioned time period.

We will take care of the complete process in Singapore including all veterinary services, boarding and care.

Please note that Melbourne is the only entry point for pets arriving in Australia (and also Tasmania). Upon arrival, your pet will be transferred to the “Mickleham Post Entry Quarantine Facility” where the pet will be quarantined for 10 days before being released to the pet owner.

Once the mandatory quarantine period is completed, if required we can transport your pet from Melbourne to anywhere in Australia.
