Each state may have their own nuances in the law relating to the importation of animals from abroad, in addition to the general requirements of the standard, which we write below. For example, in Australia to import animals in general is prohibited without prior consent Quarantine and Inspection Service. Arriving in Greece with pets are required to present evidence of the customs of international standard on the origin and health of pets. Cyprus immediately upon arrival, all dogs must pass the inspection in the veterinary service of the airport.

In Norway, in addition to the standard documents on the animal you have the right to require a certificate of vaccination against rabies vaccine complex, the absence of parasites and blood test for levels of antibodies.
In addition, some countries have banned the import of fighting dog breeds. It must also be borne in mind if you have a four-legged friend.
If you are the owner of exotic animals (parrots, monkeys, turtles, python, and so on), you can not remove it without the express permission of the Rosselkhoznadzor. It tells the Mayor Benmerabet, partner of law firm «BDP Law Firm», «in particular this applies to animals that are listed in the Annexes to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora in Endangered Species (CITES)."

The passport is necessary in advance to put a mark on vaccination - generally no less than 30 days prior to departure. Also, the animal must be chipped, chip number - pasted in the passport "- told in a veterinary clinic named after Ivan Fillmore.

3. Learn the requirements of the carrier
Whether you're taking your pet by train or by plane, the transport company or carrier can be set specific requirements for transporting pets passengers. So the first thing ask these rules immediately when booking tickets.
It is important to note that many airlines are allowed to carry small animals right in the cabin. However, as in the case of transportation of pet in the cargo area, this is a paid service for which you must pay at the airport.
Alexander Gladilin, Project Manager tourist service, talked about some of the nuances of the transportation of animals by air, "Transportation of animals in aircraft permitted by the rules of most airlines, but the requirements for carriage may be different from each other. Furthermore, the plane can carry a limited number of animals. For example, Aeroflot allows smuggle in the cabin per flight is not more than two dogs. So try as soon as possible to contact the airline to find out its conditions and time to book a place.
Dog or cat in an airplane must be designed for it in a container, transportation of birds is possible in a special cage, fish - in a sealed tank. Other animals can not travel with their owners, or in the luggage, but they can be transported on cargo aircraft. Animal transport passenger is obliged to provide a container of sufficient size cage with access of air. Without a cage or container transport is strictly prohibited. The bottom of the container or cage must be waterproof and covered with absorbent material. The animal must be able to get up, "full-length" and rotate around its axis. Castle must be reliable. The cost of transportation of the animal depends on its weight. As a rule, pets traveling in the luggage compartment of the aircraft.
Allowed to carry pets in the cabin, the mass together with container or cage does not exceed five to eight pounds, dimensions in the sum of three dimensions not exceeding 115 cm. Pets are accepted for carriage accompanied by an adult passengers, with the prior consent of the airline. Transportation of large dogs (harder five to eight pounds) carried in the luggage compartment of the aircraft. Please note that some airlines prohibit the transport of large dogs. "
4. Prepare a pet to travel and go to the control at the airport
Moving to another country - specific stress even for humans. What can we say about our smaller brothers. However, there are specific ways to reduce the load on your pet during transport. About them says Alexander Gladilin, Project Manager tourist service: "Firstly, the supply of drinking water - dehydration on the plane is faster than on the ground. Secondly, two hours before departure feed the pet with light food. Third, do not forget to walk your pet before departure. Finally, make sure that your pet does not suffer from lack of air in your container or cage. And in any case, do not try to calm the animal with medication. "
Providing a comfortable and safe journey for your four-legged friend is important even from a legal point of view. As the Mayor of Benmerabet «BDP Law Firm», in the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation is a separate article for cruelty to animals.
Before registering for the flight animals undergo a mandatory control at the airport. After checking the documents you will be issued a boarding pass necessary for boarding.
Most often, a professional company engaged in the transportation of animals, small animals are sent from Russia to the United States, Canada, South Africa, Thailand, Germany, France and Italy. The carrier has two categories of clients. The first sell a puppy or kitten to the buyer abroad. A second transport their pets when moving to a permanent residence. Often they turn to the organization, if the airline refuses to take on board any animal, or if the country imposes a ban on the flight master together with the pet. In this case it is necessary to send a separate pet cargo unaccompanied.
"Basically sent abroad cats and dogs. But recently we even had to send to Germany two ordinary Siberian protein. Also with the help of our new home during transportation to the zoo recently acquired a lioness, "- confessed to the companies' successful flight."
