Importing Your pet into Australia from a Category 3 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. As standard, there is a mandatory 180 day wait process for all pets entering Australia. This means you should get in touch with us within 7-12 months prior to your relocation date. This will give us enough time to start the delicate process of the regulatory framework including vetwork requirements, certificates, permits, quarantine bookings and any onward flight bookings from Melbourne to your new home.
What are the Differences for Category 3?
Depending on what country you are coming from will depend on the process and entry requirements into Australia. As such, all Category 3 pets need to supply ID verification, rabies vaccination records, RNATT blood test and declarations as the first step. Category 3 pets are also required to quarantine for 30 days, however they may be eligible for 10 days depending if the appropriate government approved ID checks are met. For a more in-depth insight into Category 3 expectations click here to visit the Australian Government Website or speak to one of our Import Pet Travel Consultants on 1300 452 115 or +613 9339 4339.

What is the Process for a Category 3 Import?
Jetpets Door to Door Service
With a dedicated local team and an extensive global network of trusted partners around the world, you can be sure that your pets will arrive in Australia safely. We can facilitate a full door-to-door service which includes collection from your home, airport check-in, collection from the quarantine facility, airport check in for any onward flights around Australia and drop off services to your new home.
Jetpets Can Transport Your Pets From Quarantine to Your New Home
Every dog and cat that enters Australia from countries other than Category 1 pets require a 10 or 30 day stay at The Australian Quarantine Facility in Mickelham, Victoria. This means that regardless of where you are moving to in Australia, your pets must fly into Melbourne, Victoria first to quarantine. Once your pets have successfully completed their quarantine stay, our Pet Handlers will collect your pets and deliver them to your new home in Victoria. If your pets require onward travel, our Pet Handlers will check them into their domestic flight, collect them from their destination airport and deliver them to your door step.
