you don't have e.u pet passports here in the trnc.

even if you did they are not accepted in the uk, or anywhere else in the e.u.

The pet passport is recognised if done in the south and all the necessary jabs and paperwork are in place, this side the pet passport is useless.

as long as i know, even if u have a passport for the dogs, you can't use that in Ercan anyway and if you get caught with the dog at the border, then it will mean another 3 weeks in the quarantine.

don't think i would take the risk.

any dog coming here does have a micro chip, if anyone reads it they should know where the dog enters what country and when. remember the export docs from defra?

so when it turns up elsewhere you may well get caught out.

This is how I think it works.

If a dog has an EU passport from Republic of Cyprus it is accepted in all European countries. The problem with the UK and a couple of other EU-countries is that they don't accept transfer through Turkey. However, if you were to bring the pet into an EU-country that does, like Germany, you could then continue to UK without a problem.

so, is this correct...if you fly your pet into Germany or France, you can then catch another flight or drive, with the said pet, into the UK without doing quarantine?

Just to clarify - only countries in EU can participate in Pet Passport scheme ... but there are certain conditions and rules. South Cyprus is part of Pet Passport scheme .... North Cyprus isn't. Even if you get a passport from the South (or Germany) you still have to have Rabies jabs done 6 months prior to entry to the UK in an EU country (and the dog has to stay in that EU country for the whole 6 months) with necessary blood tests being carried out at specified times too. If you don't meet all the required regulations at point of entry to UK you will still have to do some or full quarantine period (eg if blood tests were done outside of the 24-48 hour required time you will fail!). Be warned - some of the vets don't understand all the rules and can get it wrong!! Check out current full regulations on UK govt website yourselves if thinking of transporting pets: http://www.defra.gov.uk/animalh/quarantine/ - a "Passport" on it's own won't get you in!

Hope that helps

Erica

thank you Erica, one other question, you said the animal must have a rabies shot 6 months prior to leaving, is this set in stone,or can it be 12 months prior, or 3 months?

If it's over the 6 months requirement, should OK (but may need booster prior to travel - need to check on current regulations). If it's 3 months for 'first ever' Rabies jab, then will also need to do 3 months quarantine in UK to make up to the 6 month requirement. If it's an 'annual booster' 3 months prior, should be OK (but again, need to check). And the stupid bit is .... UK govt then make you have ANOTHER Rabies jab on arrival into quarantine in the UK!!!! (even if only had one done couple of days previously!!). There are Export regulations from whatever country the export is from, plus Import regulations from whatever country going to!! It is all very confusing and the regulations all seem to change often too so does need very, very careful checking if doing 'yourself' and not through a UK agent. Oh ... and keep a copy of ALL paperwork - it can 'go missing' on the flight!! Good luck!

some of the rabies jabs in the uk are valid for 2 years but it is best to get it done every year(booster) as erica said all the rules are not clear cut.

Hi, thanks for the link to these comments. If I understand correctly I could get a passport in the TRNC and fly the puppies to France where I could get passports that are recognised in the UK( this will take six months ) and then bring them back to the UK. Have I got this right?

carol,

TRNC are no longer in the Pet Passport scheme, sorry - I don't think that that is an option...

KAR would be your best source if information - they were extremely knowledgable when I brought pets over here.

This is fact



You can take your pet from North Cyprus into any EU country except the Republic of Ireland the United Kingdom, Sweden and of course the ROC if you have to cross the green line.

To enter the EU except for the above countries you must have the pet:

Micro chipped

Blood has been tested for rabies antibodies by an approved EU laboratory

All rabies inoculations are in order

It is all documented correctly

It will take approx six months for your pet to complete the rabies procedure here, then you can take your pet into France etc where it will have to spend six months before ( legally ) entering the UK.

Whilst in France your pet can sit it out either in normal kennels or you can rent a place and have the pet with you.

If you decide to go this route Ferdez will complete the documentation, microchip, see to all the jabs draw the blood and send it for analysis by courier to an approved laboratory, usually in Scotland.



Hope this was of some help

Hi,

I was sent a link to your post as I am trying to find a home for two puppies. If that is not possible then I will try and get them back to the UK. The information on the posts confirmed much of what I have found out so far and that is that it is very difficult to get them out of the TRNC and back to the UK. I am back in Cyprus in the middle of August and will need to decide what to do then. I have looked into quarantine in the UK and flying them back etc but the total cost is around 4,500. Our home circumstances are not ideal for us to have dogs again and had decided not to do so. We would look to find homes back here. If you have any idea about homing them or further information about getting them back to the UK it would be appreciated.

Thanks

Carol

Hello All

Thank you for taking time to give me information on the movement of animals in from the TRNC to the UK. I had not read your post Codger until now. That might be our only option, I had not realised that we would still need to get a passport in the TRNC.

Until the UK change the quarantine rules the ' pet passport ' that you obtain in North Cyprus is only valid for entry into the EU, less the countries mentioned.

ROI, UK and Sweden all have dispensation from the EU to implement national rules regarding pet entry to their particular country.

If you send the dogs back to the UK for quarantine you will not need to have the ' pet passport ' procedure as they will be given a rabies shot at the quarantine kennel and then spend six months in quarantine to ensure they are rabies free.



Hope this helps

Codger

Just read all these posts - yes, it is all very confusing and the rules and regulations change VERY regularly!! And, yes, you could call it people 'making money out of animals' ... but it is Govt regulations that cause the necessary paperwork/passports/quarantine situation, so you need to lobby your local MP if you want to do anything about it!! I live at a boarding & quarantine kennels & cattery in the UK (don't work there - impossible to live and work with family! LOL!) - we have just returned from TRNC and we find it very difficult walking past all the stray dogs and cats - KAR are inundated with strays and do a very good job in difficult circumstances. (Just re-homing 14 RSPCA dogs in UK so can't bring any more home!) If anyone wants full clarification of current UK quarantine laws please go to http://www.lekf.co.uk or e-mail Kim in the office at kim@londonandessex.demon.co.uk - she is very helpful (will find out anything) - have left some brochures with KAR. Good luck!

Erica

Carol. See message 27. Codger mentions Ferdez. She is a vet in Girne. Her surgery in in Lower Bellapais road which is the road behind the back entrance to Pia Bella Hotel. Her premises are at the end of the shops on the right hand side as you face Bellapais. There is a car park off the road.

Hope this helps.
