Pet Moving

International Pet Moves

Moving Your Pet Around the World

There are hundreds of details to attend to when moving a pet offshore. Regulations vary by destination and frequently change. Engaging Air Animal to manage your pet's international move will ensure a smooth transition for you and your pet. We move pets to more than 165 countries and we’ve posted average bundled prices for some of the most common overseas destinations on this page.

Let’s talk! Start your pet’s move well before your relocation date by telling us more using our online request.

Your pet relocation needs depend upon your pet’s species, breed, the number of pets relocating, each pet's weight, the flight kennel in which your pet flies, the origin, the destination, the pre-flight requirements, air transport charges, and in-transit care charges. That’s why we don’t do automated cookie-cutter replies. Talking with you allows your pet move manager to develop your timeline based on your move date and thoughtful consideration of your needs.

Your international pet relocation proposal will include relocation logistics, a pet travel kennel, laboratory charges for required blood tests, veterinary inspections, international health certificate preperation, in-transit care, pet hotel or quarantine if required, customs entry procedures, ground transport to a gateway airport if needed, and the specific requirements of the destination country.

Many clients call on us repeatedly and refer friends and family to us. Try us once and you'll understand why!

Pet Move Plan Ahead

Step 3: FAQs

De-stressing Your Move - Our Air Animal Pet Moving Made Easy® App offers mobile and desktop concierge service exclusively for Air Animal clients. You’ll have your pet move and global tracking services in the palm of your hand. When you complete your online request your pet move manager will email your Air Animal App username and password. You will also receive scheduled email timelines outlining next steps before the move so you know exactly what is happening. You and your pet mover set the frequency of these updates.

Airline Partners - As an IATA-approved agency, Air Animal leverages pet transportation industry relationships and pet moving expertise built over more than 40 years to arrange your pet's move as live animal air cargo on commercial airlines. Pet moves by air are safer and cause less stress than moving your pet in the family car. Like all professional pet shipping companies, we are not a low-cost alternative to arranging your own move, nor do we own the planes.

The Industry Leader - Our longstanding relationships with commercial airlines and our intricate knowledge of the rules and regulations in over 165 countries have made Air Animal the top international animal shipping company in the United States. We know the international marketplace, quarantine issues, blood test and documentation requirements, and the preferred air carriers by destination better than anyone.

Booking Space - Space for pets is managed solely by the airlines. As an IATA-approved agency, Air Animal employs up-to-date online booking tools and reserves space for your pet when the airline offers a booking opportunity. We call these air waybills. Space is offered by airlines three to 30 days before the flight depending on the airline.

Ground Transport - If your pet is a large breed, ground transport to a gateway airport may be required. Wide body airplanes accommodating the extra-large and giant kennels are only available at gateway airports. Air Animal offers a nationwide network of service partners who will drive your pet to their departure airport.
