(April 14, 2017) The British government has announced major changes to the Transfer of Residence (TOR) protocols for people permanently moving to the UK.
Transfer of Residence documents for Britain includes all household goods imported by the new residents. TOR now requires that pets be on the list. The change also requires 30 days' notice before arrival.
British customs officials have warned that pet entry inspection and clearance will take longer--possibly up to 10 hours. If you are planning to move to the UK, please plan ahead and speak to one of our UK pet move specialists at least two months before you relocate. Jax did. He moved from Portland, OR to London in January.
