What to Expect When Your Pet is in Quarantine?

Once your pet arrives into New Zealand, the quarantine team will collect your pet and check them into your selected Quarantine Facility. Within 72 hours of arrival, an MPI veterinarian will inspect your pet to ensure they are fit and healthy. Your pets stay will last for 10 days, however, in order to be released from Quarantine, they will need to pass their finial release inspection which only happens during business hours. This means that your pets final release inspection might happen after 10 days of quarantine.
