Taking your pets to New Zealand

Before a cat or dog can be imported into New Zealand from Belgium, an import health permit must be obtained from the Ministry of Primary Industry's(external link) quarantine service. The Import Health Standards outline the length of any quarantine period required.

The Golden Pages(external link) or your local veterinary surgeon are useful sources to find companies specialising in the transportation of domestic pets.
 Application forms for an import health permit can be obtained from the New Zealand Customs Service in Brussels:
