Bringing a dog from Thailand

Post by Bamsen » Mon Jan 25, 2016 9:06 am

Have you guys got any experience how to bring a dog from Thailand back to your home. My plan is taking two dogs at the same time. Any suggestion?

Contact this lady. https://www.facebook.com/janekey1947?fref=nf On Facebook. If you don't have Facebook let me know and I will get you her phone number. I tried to send it by PM but it wouldn't let me. I don't think you have enough posts yet for private messages. She has found many homes for street dogs overseas and will have all the info you need.

I read on another forum recently it will cost you about £4000 for each dog..They need rabies shots..passport from a vet..special plane..if going to the UK they will be in quarantine for 6 months..

It depends on where home is. If it is Australia it is a somewhat protracted and expensive process involving quarantine in Singapore. I cannot comment for other countries. We have recently brought a dog from Australia to Thailand and the process, whilst somewhat arduous paper work wise was relatively straight forward once all documentation and requirements were met. For the final stage of bringing the dog here, anticipating potential problems with customs and import duties, we used a local agent to act on our behalf. She was quite competent and very reasonably priced and well worth the money. She specializes in pet export import and I would be quite happy to pass her details onto you if you wish via PM. She would be able to advise you.

If taking your dog to the UK it is much easier than it used to be, you will have to make sure your dog is vaccinated and I think you have to have 2 clear blood tests .
If you do all this and get the vetinary paperwork you can then ship your dog to the UK .
If you have done all the requirements then there is no longer the 6 month quarantine like before.
You can get all the details on the government website.

Thanks a bunch Arlo, They are not street dogs and both of them already got the required vaccines. I am not sure that the airline allow me more than one dog:-(

I didn't mean your dogs were street dogs, what I was trying to say is that she will probably have the answers to your questions because she has experience in these matters and should know what is needed to ship a dog overseas. Just a suggestion, and I hope you figure it out and can share what you have learned here.

We are moving to Spain next year and have settled on Quatar air. In general 2 small dogs ( Chihuahuas) in one travel box or 1 larger dog seems to cost about the same as 1 human ticket, give or take. Its fairly easy to DIY through the individual airline websites. The vet hospital near big c will give you all the info for getting a pet passport. Once you have that, travelling to the vast majority of countries is fairly hassle free and nomproblem at all within the EU

A friend of mine just this past month took his German Shepard to the US. Need papers from vet and get the Thai export document. Book space on plane that carries animals along with your own passage on that same plane. Cost for dog was by kilo. I am sure you can find out the exact requirements from some of the people mentioned above. Not a big hassle as you may have feared.
