Mickleham Quarantine to Melbourne, Australia
Dear Chris   It is a very happy house we have tonight! It is so fantastic to have all or babies back. They were running around for at least an hour when they arrived. It was dark before we were able to get them in bed for cuddles.   Thank you for taking such great care of our furbabies. They were so jolly when they arrived. There are no words to describe the joy to be with them again.   Thank you again and kind regards   Jeanné

Overseas Pet Travel into Australia

For pets travelling into Australia, depending on which country your pet is arriving from, you may need to start planning 2 to 7 months in advance to meet strict quarantine requirements.

  • Pets travelling into Australia from New Zealand, Norfolk Island or Cocos (Keeling) Islands are not required to stay in quarantine, and instead will be straight home to you.
  • For pets coming from other countries, quarantine is required for 10 days.
  • Please note there are some countries that do not allow direct entry of pets into Australia.

Australia’s only government-run quarantine facility is located in Mickleham, Victoria, close to the Melbourne International Airport

International Pet Travel from Australia

All pets travelling internationally must fulfil the requirements of the receiving country of destination.

Jetpets can provide you with all requirements well in advance of your pet’s travel. Some countries require the process to begin many months ahead to ensure all government requirements are met.
