How Our International Pet Transport Services Work?

What to expect when your Pet Travels to Japan

Our highly qualified Team of experts work in collaboration to ensure that your pet’s comfort, safety and welfare is our top priority.  Here are just a few services you can expect directly from our team members.

Pet Travel Consultants just like a travel agent, they will organise your flights to Japan in line with your travel arrangements as best as possible and include a special pet delivery service to your new home.  Our team will require all the important details of your pet including health conditions, microchip details, vaccination history and information to ensure your pet will be comfortable on their overseas adventure.

Pet Handlers can collect your pet from your house, transport them into our transit lounge for a stretch, toilet stop and a drink of water.  Once your pet has been cleared for flying, they will be safely transported to the airport and checked in for their flight.  Depending on your itinerary, our Pet Handlers will provide a pet travel update prior to your pet being checked in on the aircraft when travelling through one of our Transit Lounges.

In-House Vets are available to provide the export veterinary work and quarantine requirements for entering Japan and ensure your pet is in the ideal condition before they embark on their long flight ahead.


Trusted By The International Industry’s Best

Jetpets Melbourne has become the first pet transport company in the Asia Pacific Region to be awarded The Centre of Excellence for Live Animals Logistics (CEIV) Certification, and is one of only five companies in the world to have received the honour. “Jetpets customers can be confident that their precious animals are traveling in safe and healthy conditions” – Glyn Hughes, IATA Global Head of Cargo.


What Happens At The Airport?


  • The captain of the aircraft is aware that your loved one is on board their flight
  • The captain will set the temperature to approx. 18 degrees Celsius so that the animals are comfortable
  • The cabin is dimly lit so that your loved one can see what is going on around them
  • What we feel and hear in the cabin of the plane is the same as what animals experience (except in a travel crate they have much more legroom than us!).
