Auckland to Sydney, Australia
Thank you so much again! He was good, he was crying when he seen me once I collected him, well I think we both cried lol he was perfectly fine after the flight. Honestly, can’t thank you guys enough, you and your team. I heard Spot won some hearts at Jetpets haha we didn’t quite make it to Perth but we have finally made it to Australian soil and I’m over the moon with that, one giant step closer to our final destination.

Great pleasure to have him here and appreciate your ability to get his travel right. Your team all the way through has gone above and beyond keeping me in the loop. Great effort Stephanie. Cheers
Auckland to Sydney, Australia
Thanks for checking in Sommer. We are in love! She is amazing, really clever! Everyone at Jetpets were fabulous, we went to pick her up and she was playing with her little mates who had come on the same plane…
Auckland to Brisbane, Australia
Hi Sommer,  Yes a big thank you to you and all the amazing ladies both Gerry and I have dealt with, you have all been so professional, kind and caring and I can't believe how excited but relaxed Molly was when she arrived! First night was pretty good too considering the massive 24hrs she had. I'll send through a couple of pics of my boys with her when she arrived.. they were sooo excited (and still are.. not easy getting them to school this morning!)  You guys have made the whole process so easy and it's been super refreshing dealing with such efficiency given these crazy times we're in so thank you.  Hope you all keep safe and well and will definitely be recommending Jet Pets to anyone wishing to move their pets.
Invercargill to Melbourne, Australia
Hi Stephanie, Billie is great. Was very happy and calm when picking her up yesterday. Busy afternoon playing and slept the whole night. Must have been tired from her travels. She's adorable and so loved!  Thanks again for all your help to get her here to Melbourne.

Frequently Asked Questions About International Pet Transport to Australia

Q: Can I Take My Dog To Australia From NZ?

Yes, you can! Provided your furbaby meets the specific health standards and import eligibility requirements. Our team has headquarters in both Australia and New Zealand, so we can help you ensure all the required documentation, vetwork, tests and treatments are completed for a smooth relocation. You rely on Jetpets to make the whole process easy and stress-free for you and your dog.

Q: How Much Does It Cost To Take Your Pet To Australia?

There are many factors that go into pet transport prices, including flight routes and destinations, size and weight of your pet, level of service provided and more. Our quotes can be made all-inclusive, delivering a boutique experience for you and your pet – no hidden costs or surprises.

Q: Do Dogs and Cats Need To Stay In Quarantine When Arriving In Australia?

Pets arriving from New Zealand do not need to undergo quarantine in Australia. This is because New Zealand is a rabies free Category I country – this means that all pets can travel directly to any of the major ports across Australia including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast or Perth and straight home upon arrival.

Q: What Dogs Are Banned In Australia?

Certain breeds of dogs are not allowed to be imported to Australia just like New Zealand. These breeds include the American pit bull terrier, Brazilian Fila, Dogo Argentino, Japanese Tosa and Perro de Presa Canario.

Q: What Happens When My Pet Arrives In Australia?

Once the plane has landed, pets are always the first to be taken off the plane and into a secured and comfortable waiting area. Each arrival airport procedure is different so your Jetpets Pet Travel Consultant will have all of this outlined in the travel itinerary that is personalised for your pet.
