Steps for taking pets to New Zealand
To bring your pets entering New Zealand, you must notify PET TRAVEL’s pet immigration experts and complete the pet immigration process at least 4.5-6 months before departure. You also need to contact the airline in advance to arrange for the pet transport to New Zealand and book a flight. Some direct flights to New Zealand only accept pets in the cargo hold and do not allow them to be brought into the cabin or treated as special baggage. If your budget allows, you can also choose pet travel to New Zealand by private plane.
Before leaving, you need to have an electronic pet identification (EPI) microchip implanted in your pets and take them to a veterinarian for pre-flight health checks, including obtaining a pet health certificate New Zealand and arranging for parasite treatment. You also need to undergo a border biosecurity check (obtaining an MPI veterinarian inspection form).

After your pets arrive in New Zealand, they will need to undergo at least 10 days of quarantine inspection.”

There is no pet passport available in Hong Kong or China. Pet passports are only applicable to pets from the US, UK, and EU countries, which allow cats and dogs to be brought out of the UK and into other EU countries. Additional requirements may apply for certain countries/regions.
In Hong Kong or China, we will have a pet health certificate instead of a pet passport for importing and exporting to foreign countries. The pet health certificate for New Zealand pet immigration should completed and issued by an official or authorized veterinarian, and then signed by the supervising authority. It is valid for 1-14 days from the date of issuance by the official veterinarian until the day of the document and identity check at the port of entry for travelers. The health certificate should include the pet’s name, microchip number, pet identity, and vaccination records. For more information on New Zealand pet import, please consult our professional team.
