How Do Our International Pet Transport Services Work?


How We Can Help With Your International Pet Transport Needs

Our International Pet Travel Consultants

  • Our Pet Travel Consultants are here to find out all about your pet, their personality, any special requirements and previous travel history.
  • They are all treated as VIPs – very important pets!
  • We provide expert advice on preparing and transporting your furbaby to Australia including all customs requirements
  • The team will evaluate the best sized travel crate to ensure your pet travels in comfort, including a stay dry fleece mat
  • Arrange where possible for your pet’s travel crate to be delivered to your home prior to your relocation
  • Book your pet on the most direct flight to Australia and organise any accommodation if required
  • We can arrange a door-to-door pet transport service so you don’t need to worry about getting to and from the airports
  • Prepare your pet’s personalised itinerary in line with your requirements

Partnering Vets

Our Partnering Vets are experts in international pet transport and can provide the vaccinations and treatments required to travel into Australia. The Veterinary team will ensure that all documents required for your overseas travel are carried out accurately and meet all government requirements. Our Partnering Vets make regular visits to our Transit Lounge to make life easy for you and your furbabys pre-travel appointments.

Transit Lounges For Support Each Step Of The Way

Our Transit Lounge is conveniently located near Auckland airport and allows for priority check in so your travelling pet will arrive at the airport in perfect timing. We provide a relaxing and stress-free environment for your pet and give them the opportunity to relax out of their crate before their big journey ahead. Our highly trained Pet Handlers will take care of your pets every step of the way and make provisions for delayed or cancelled flights.

Experienced Pet Handlers

Our Jetpets Pet Handlers are specifically trained in pet handling and are genuine pet lovers. They are available to personally come to your house and professionally fit your pet to the perfect sized crate (in local areas) prior to your pet’s travel to Australia. The Pet Handling Team will take care of your pet on the day of travel, giving them plenty of love, attention and walks and check your pet in for their flight at the airport.

What Happens At The Airport?

  • The captain of the aircraft is aware that your loved one is on board their flight
  • The captain will set the temperature to approx. 18 degrees Celsius so that the animals are comfortable
  • The cabin is dimly lit so that your loved one can see what is going on around them
  • What we feel and hear in the cabin of the plane is the same as what animals experience (except in a travel crate they have much more legroom than us!)

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.
