Important Factors to Keep in Mind for Pet Relocation to Malaysia
It is recommended to notify PET TRAVEL, the pet travel Malaysia experts and arrange for pet immigration procedures at least 1.5 months before departure. Contacting the airline in advance to book a pet immigration ticket to Malaysia is also essential. Most direct flights to Malaysia only allow pet transportation in the cargo hold with oxygen supply and do not permit pets to travel in the cabin or as special baggage. If financially feasible, you may also consider pet immigration to Malaysia via private charter flights.
Please note that obtaining a Malaysia pet entry permit from the Malaysian customs is necessary before departure for pet immigration to Malaysia.
Before your pet relocation to Malaysia, please take them to a veterinary clinic for a pre-flight check-up, obtain a health certificate and arrange for other treatments. Additionally, you need to bring these documents to the Fisheries Department for endorsement. Between 2-7 days before departure, your pet must undergo other treatments.
After ensuring that all the necessary documents are in place, you should send your pet to the airline and complete the check-in procedures before your flight departure. Upon arrival in Malaysia, your pet will be subject to a seven-day quarantine period.

Timeline for Malaysia pet immigration
For our pet immigration service, we recommend that you provide us with at least 1.5 months advance notice before your departure date. This will allow us enough time to prepare the necessary import/export documents and coordinate with airlines and customs officials. The airline will also need to reserve space for your pet as cargo or excess baggage.
Neither Hong Kong nor China issues pet passports. Pet passports are only applicable to pets coming from the United States, the United Kingdom, and European Union countries, which allow cats and dogs to be brought from the UK to other EU countries. For certain countries/regions, additional requirements may apply.
In Hong Kong or China, we will provide a pet health certificate instead of a pet passport for export and import purposes. The pet health certificate is completed and issued by an official or authorized veterinarian and then signed by the competent authority. It is valid for 1-14 days from the date of issuance by the official veterinarian to the date of the document and identity check at the entry port of the traveler. The health certificate should contain the pet’s name, microchip number, pet identity, and vaccination records. For more Malaysia pet import information, please consult our professional team.
In addition to vaccine preparation and export documentation, your pet may require an import permit to enter specific countries or regions. Some countries require a pet immigration company to prepare these import documents. If you require this service, you can contact our professional team.
Airlines will require the original veterinary health certificate for your pet, records of your pet’s vaccination history, a letter of declaration from the live animal shipper, and the airway bill for the shipment of your pet. When importing or exporting from Hong Kong, you may also need an airline certificate (Captain’s declaration). At Pet Travel, we can assist you in preparing all of these documents and coordinate with the airline and relevant immigration departments before you and your pet travel.
Certainly. While it’s certainly possible to move your pet on your own, many people do so in an effort to save money, but end up making costly mistakes. If you’re moving to another country and aren’t familiar with their pet import policies, you may end up putting your pet through unnecessary hardship. Don’t risk your pet’s well-being by going it alone!
