Can I take my pet from the United Kingdom to the Netherlands after Brexit?

Yes, you can. But there are rules for travelling with pets. These rules will stay the same until 31 December 2020. After that they may change.

More information (in Dutch) about taking pets to and from the UK after Brexit can be found on the website of the Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA).

Until 31 December 2020

A transition period will be in place until 31 December 2020. During that time the current rules will remain unchanged.

Travelling with pets after 31 December 2020

After 31 December 2020 the rules will change. The new rules will appear on the NVWA website in the course of 2020. Make sure you read them if you want to travel with your pet in 2021. Check whether your pet meets the new rules at least three months before leaving for the Netherlands.
