Moving your best Mate to Australia’s Beautiful Harbour City? Best tips for Sydney Pet Transport

Sydney Pet Transport

Sydney is one of the most sought-after destinations in the world, attracting students, business people, emigrants, and retirees from everywhere. But how do you manage Sydney pet transport for your furry or feathered friend?

Transporting Your Pet to Sydney

Domestic Pet Transport to Sydney

If you are already in Australia, Sydney pet transport is straightforward. Petflyers offers domestic flights to Sydney from all major cities and most regional towns. Simply visit Petflyers Domestic Quote for more information. We can fly your dog, cat, bird, fish, or rabbit to Sydney. Even if you have a brachycephalic breed, our qualified team can safely transport your snub-nosed dog, thanks to our extensive experience.

International Pet Transport to Sydney

Moving to Sydney from overseas is more complex due to Australian import regulations. Your pet will need to stay at the Melbourne Quarantine Station for either 10 or 30 days. However, with careful planning and the right pet shipping company, you can successfully bring your pet to Sydney. Start by familiarizing yourself with the import conditions for your pet. This link also provides information on importing other animals besides cats and dogs.

Next, choose an experienced pet shipper. The best place to start is the IPATA website, where you can find IPATA-certified pet shippers in your area. IPATA members adhere to strict ethical codes and stay current with live animal regulations through regional and global conferences.

Petflyers can assist with obtaining an import permit, arranging quarantine, and flying your pet to Sydney after quarantine. You can choose to collect your pet from Sydney Airport or have us deliver them to your Sydney residence for a small additional fee. Contact us at +61 7 4729 1399 to discuss your needs.
