You don’t need a pet passport for your pet to travel from Australia to Europe but you can obtain the passport once you’ve reached your EU destination, if you plan on travelling between countries in the European Union. The application process is simple, as you will already have all of the documentation used to imported your pet to Europe to begin with. An EU Pet Passport contains all of your pet’s relevant history and vetwork documentation, such as vaccinations and microchip number, in a single location.
