Official Export Health certificate.

This must be applied for from DEFRA. Application is in two parts. The health certificate relevant to the country you are emigrating to and the EXA1 Application Form. Ring DEFRA/AHVLA/APHA - Carlisle 01228 403 600 option 1 then option 3 or email your enquiry to PetExports@apha.gsi.gov.uk. Ask for application forms (Export Health Certificate and EXA1) for cat/dog going to your destination country along with vet guidance notes. You will need to show this to your vet a significant amount of time before the flight so that they know what to do to prepare your pet for travel. You must adhere to any regulations regarding vaccinations, tests and treatments. Once applied for, the Export Health Certificate is posted to the OV (vet) that you nominate about 10 days prior to export. Dependent on the country involved, you will have to take your pet(s) to the OV at some point between 10 days prior and 1 day prior to the flight so that the vet can do any final treatments and sign up the Export Health Certificate. With Australia and New Zealand you will have to take your pets to the vet a couple of times prior to this for flea/tick and worming treatments (cats and dogs) and for blood tests (dogs).

FTF† - Fitness to fly certificate.

This is a document/letter provided by any vet describing your pet(s) and confirming that on the date they were examined they were deemed to be free of clinical signs of disease and of a satisfactory condition to be transported by air. It should state the name of the owner and address, the destination airport and final destination address. The certificate is valid for up to 10 days (but is dependent on the airline - some deem certificates to be valid only for 2 days).
