travel a pre flight health check is also needed for
the pet passport, generally the entry is made at the
back of the passport.
There are some non EU countries
within the pet passport scheme, for instance
Switzerland and Norway and there are others.
Countries outside the EU all have their own
prerequisites for entry and exit, as has Portugal
receiving pets from outside the EU. We
recommend that all would be travellers check with
the Portuguese consulate/embassy in the country they
are planning to travel from.
There is very good information for would be
travellers and vets on the DEFRA website, at
www.defra.gov.uk and follow links for ‘wildlife
and pets’. The information is regularly
updated and all the countries within the Pet
Passport scheme can be found there.
