Shipping Your Pet

Visa Bureau is not affiliated with the New Zealand Government but is a website. NZ visas are available from the NZ Government at a lower cost when you apply directly. Our comprehensive visa and immigration information include immigration advice from registered migration agents, an exceptional success rate, document checking and visa processing.

Taking the family pet with you when you emigrate can be a complicated process, especially if you don't know the process of shipping an animal overseas.

For more information on shipping your pet abroad, Jet4Pets can provide comprehensive assistance.

Emigrating with cats or dogs to New Zealand

Cats and dogs coming from Australia, United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway, Hawaii and Singapore do not require quarantine in New Zealand, but do require certification and will be inspected for ticks on arrival. Other pets may require a permit to import them into the country.

For more specific requirements, see Biosecurity New Zealand.
