Woman faces animal cruelty after leaving cat in Oslo airport for London trip — 3 Comments

  1. I thought Great Britain had strict rules about animals being transported into the country, such as medical history, shot record, and quarantine. Has this changed over the last twenty years, Michael?

    • The introduction of the Pet Travel Scheme in 2001 eliminated the need for mandatory quarantine in the U.K. Provided of course that the animal has a full pet passport and is arriving from a destination proven to be low risk for rabies. Failure to comply will result in the animal being denied entry into the country or put into 6 months quarantine at the owner’s expense.

      Regardless of individual airline policies, all animals arriving in the U.K. by air, must travel as cargo in the hold. Upon arrival, the animal will be taken straight to the airport’s Animal Reception Centre to have their passport and microchip details checked before they can be reunited with their owner.
