How to prepare pets for international relocation?

Pets are an integral part of our lives and most people are reluctant to leave them behind when moving abroad. However, they are subject to specific traveling regulations of which every pet owner must be aware. Also, these regulations depend on the country you are moving to. It is recommendable to check the official government website of a country you are moving to prior to travel. Also, consult the best relocation services Saudi Arabia for pet relocation advice.  However, there are a few important things to keep in mind for any relocation with a pet:

  • buy a travel carrier
  • make sure the pet is vaccinated and has a passport
  • hire a reliable moving company

Buy a travel carrier

The majority of airlines and other means of transportation would ask you to carry your pet in a travel crate during the trip. Find out which travel carrier is best suitable for your pet to make its journey more comfortable. Buy it way ahead of the trip so your pet can get used to it and feel more at ease during the trip. Also, as some breeds of cats and dogs are not allowed to travel due to respiratory issues, check if your pet can get onboard.

Passport and vaccination

Just like humans, pets also need to have valid documents when crossing the border. The requirements vary from one country to another. However, there is a certain amount of paperwork to think about – microchips, vaccinations, visits to the veterinarian, and special permits. Some countries have more strict regulations than others, and it is, therefore, good to obtain as much information as possible. If you are coming from abroad, Four Winds Saudi Arabia will assist you with your relocation to Saudi Arabia.
