Could anyone recommend a company to take care of the transporting of a cat and dog from Newcastle to Northern Cyprus.

What price do they charge and how does it work.

Hi Lubbyloo



I brought 2 pekinese into Northern Cyprus but that was back in 2003, so don't know what the prices are now.



I would suggest you initially contact DEFRA in London : Defra Helpline telephone: 08459 33 55 77 or by email at helpline@defra.gsi.gov.uk

who will be able to give you all the information with regard to injections needed etc. I found them and my local vet really helpful.



Once here, they have to stay in Quarantine kennels in Nicosia - fortunately only about a 20 minute drive from Kyrenia. We used to go at 9.00am and feed, clean them out and walk them and then back at 3.00pm for repeat performance. The kennels are'nt the best but I've seen worse! Its really up to you to make your animals as comfortable as possible.



Anyway, in an extract from Donaghy and Beyler website:



Pets can be brought into the country from Europe with little hassle. By law the Ministry of Agriculture requires a certificate from a European vet stating that your animal is free of major diseases. Quarantine is approximately 4 weeks at the Lefkoşa kennels. However care for the animals must be administered by you for feeding everyday. This service is not provided. The veterinary office in Lefkoşa should be informed of the date and time of arrival of the animal.



Airpets are an international pet travel company and may be able to give you the name and address of another company operating near Newcastle.

Airpets are located near Heathrow Airport and ensure international pet travel on almost a daily basis. The company is in charge of keeping the pets in quarantine as well as arranging documentation for animal import/export and other issues related to air pet travel.



Willowlsea Farm Kennels

Staines, Middlesex, UK. TW19 6BW (near Heathrow Airport)

Hope this is of help but do please give me a call if you're stuck with anything and I'll do my best to help.

What are anyone's thoughts or experiences of obtaining a pet passport from your vet in UK and bringing the pet to Larnaca, then over the border by private car?

hi checkout pine farm kennels in suffolk, they fly all the pets around the world for usaf. they were great when we came out 2 years ago. quarrentine will be for approx 21 days but if they are busy you can do home quarrentine for the last part. what defra on the export certificates because our uk rabies jabs last for 2 years but north cyprus ask for them to have been done within the previous 12 months. our giant schnauzer was done with paperwork allowing her into north cyprus, but defra refused her an export cert because of the 12 month time scale. luckily we had a good relationship with our vet who helped us out. if you need any kenneling while in north cyprus check out our website.www.topdoghotel.com

We work with a company who can supply the complete service - so far this year we have only helped clients send three pets through but more are due.



So far no complaints or problems and we are told we are not too expensive.

Hi,



We bought our dog and cat over in January from Scotland with Airpets...(all details having been given already by Gilly Griffiths) and can highly recommend them...they picked them up from our house the day before we left and transported them down to Heathrow for 2 nights. They landed in Ercan the day after we arrived here..it cost approx 2k with everything in but definitely worth it and they handled eveything for us...all we had to do was get the Import license from here, which was amazingly issued within 24 hours by fax back to Scotland...hope this helps..

Dusterbruce it is completely illegal to smuggle pets from South to North and you run the risk of having your pet destroyed if you are caught. Would you be prepared to take that risk?
