Importing Dogs to Oz

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

A couple of people have asked me about the Australian quarantine laws. These are, I think, the strictest in the World as there are many diseases the country does not have, nor do they want, like rabies. So Australia is pedantic about tests and timing for importing animals.

Depending what country you are bringing to animal from, depends on the quarantine period and what tests they need to have.

From the States, there's a six month period between when the tests are taken and when the animal is released. This can be all in Australia, but the dog has to stay actually IN quarantine, or like me, you can wait up to 5 months after having the blood drawn and then it's only 30 days.
