For detailed instructions on the export of pets to New Zealand, go to the website of New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries (NZ MPI).
Please note that:
The New Zealand authority has added a declaration on canine influenza to the import requirements for cats and dogs. This means that the following declaration has to be found on the export certificates for dogs and cats:
For at least 21 days prior to shipment:
- a) The cat or dog has not been kept in a place where there were cats or dogs showing clinical signs of infectious respiratory disease; and
- b) The cat or dog has not shown clinical signs of infectious respiratory disease.
The declaration mentioned above can be added to the template currently in use, or a new template for the certificate can be downloaded from the pages of the New Zealand authority.
