The British government issued a notice on pets on the 16th. According to the new regulations after Brexit, British people who take their pets to Northern Ireland or EU countries next year must apply for a health certificate for their pets. The original “Pet EU Passport” is invalid.
According to the British government website on the 16th, after the “Brexit” transition period, from January 1 next year, when British people carry pets or rescue dogs to EU member states and Northern Ireland from the United Kingdom, they need to ensure that cats, dogs and minks are vaccinated against rabies (pets can only be vaccinated for more than 12 weeks), and wait for 21 after the initial vaccination.
Only travel; within 10 days before going to the EU, pets need to go to the veterinary office to apply for an animal health certificate (AHC); if the pet dog goes to an EU country without insects, they must carry out pest control 24-120 hours before landing.
Before Brexit, British people could take their pets to travel anywhere in the EU as long as they hold a pet passport. When the “Brexit” transition period ends at the end of this year, the procedures will become more complicated to travel between the United Kingdom and the European Union with pets.
According to the BBC, on December 16th local time, British Prime Minister Johnson said in a parliamentary questioning that there are still “many opportunities” to reach a future relationship agreement with the EU after the “Brexit” transition period.
A spokesman for the British Prime Minister’s Office revealed that “the negotiations between Britain and Europe have made some progress in some areas, but there are still major differences.” The Brexit transition period will end on December 31 this year. If no agreement can be reached, the two sides’ trade will return to the framework of the World Trade Organization and re-implement border inspections and tariffs.
