Moorholme is able to coordinate details to ensure compliance with the strict country entry pet travel requirements of New Zealand. One of the ways in which New Zealand’s Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) protects its national territory is by mandating various testing and treatments for dogs and cats entering the country.
- All cats and dogs must receive an approved internal and external parasite treatment.
- Dogs over six months old at the date of arrival must be tested for heart-worm and return a negative result.
- All dogs must be tested for Babesia Gibsoni and return a negative result, with very strict testing requirements and timelines.
At Moorholme, we are well equipped to take care of all aspects of your pet’s relocation to New Zealand, from residence collection to boarding, flight bookings, MPI appointments, veterinary protocols, export permits, destination quarantine, and final delivery to their new home. New Zealand is one of our top destinations, and we handle all of your pet travel requirements with ease.
See below for the airports in New Zealand we service, their locations, and the pet travel requirements necessary. Moorholme uses Qantas and Air New Zealand to transport pets to the listed ports.
