Importing Your Pet into Australia from a Category 1 Country

At Jetpets we are experts in importing family pets from all over the world and reuniting them back with their families anywhere in Australia.  We have a dedicated local team and an extensive global network of trusted partners around the world to ensure your pets arrive safely in Australia.

What are the Differences for Category 1?

Depending on what country you are coming from will depend on the process and entry requirements into Australia.  As such, all Category 1 pets need to supply valid microchip details, an up to date vaccination certificate and administer a flea and worm treatment within 5 days of travelling into Australia.  Unlike Category 2 and Category 3, Category 1 pets do not require quarantine and can travel directly to Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney or Perth for Customs Clearance.

What Countries are Classified as Category 1?

Countries that are classified in Category 1 are: New Zealand, Norfolk Island and Cocos Island.

Thanks for your help in getting us reunited!  Winnie is doing well, she is loving the extra space she has to run around in her backyard in Perth compared to the apartment in Houston!
