Precautions for taking pets to Thailand

Pet immigration to Thailand requires careful planning and adherence to specific procedures. To ensure a smooth process, it is recommended to notify PET TRAVEL experts at least 1.5 months before your departure. Contacting the airline in advance is crucial to secure a pet seat as some direct flights to Thailand only allow pets in the cargo.

Prior to the journey, pets must undergo a pre-flight inspection at a veterinary clinic. It is important to obtain a pet health certificate from the veterinarian and arrange any necessary treatments. Once all the required documents are in order, you can proceed with the pet’s check-in on the day of departure. Import inspection will take place upon the pet’s arrival in Thailand.

Common FAQs

How long does it take to prepare the documents?

It is recommended that you give at least 1.5-3 months advance notice before departure. We need time to prepare import and export documents and contact airlines and customs. Airlines require pet cargo/excess baggage to be reserved for pets.

Does my pet need a pet passport?

Thailand Pet Immigration

Hong Kong and China do not provide pet passports. Only the US, UK, and EU countries offer pet passports, allowing travel between the UK and other EU countries. However, different countries may have additional requirements.

Instead of pet passports, Hong Kong and China require pet health certificates for international import and export. These certificates are issued by authorized veterinarians and must be signed by the competent authority. The validity of Thailand pet health certificate ranges from 1 to 14 days, depending on the country. The certificate should contain the pet’s name, chip number, identity information, and vaccination records. For more detailed information, please reach out to our professional team.

What else does my pet need besides vaccinations?

In addition to vaccination preparation and export documentation, your pet may require an import permit to enter certain countries. Some countries require pet immigration companies to prepare these import documents. Please contact our professional team.

What documents do airlines need?

To ensure a smooth pet travel experience, there are several documents that you will need to provide to the airline. These include the original pet health certificate issued by a veterinarian, vaccination records for your pet, a statement letter from the live animal shipper, and an air waybill for the cargo. Additionally, when importing or exporting pets in Hong Kong, an Airline Certificate may also be required.

At Pet Travel, we understand that preparing these documents can be overwhelming. That’s why we’re here to assist you with every step of the process. Our team can help you obtain the necessary documents and liaise with the airlines and relevant immigration authorities to ensure a hassle-free pet travel experience for you and your furry friend.

Is it safe for my pet to fly?

Traveling by air is as safe for pets as it is for people. Airlines require pets to travel in containers that comply with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Live Animal Regulations and with specific airline guidelines. All of these things are designed to help ensure the safety and comfort of your pet while traveling. In some cases, your pet may not be allowed to travel in the cabin with you. Your pet will travel in a special cargo compartment within the aircraft. This compartment is both climate-controlled as well as pressurized, so your pet will be safe and comfortable. It is on the same air circulation system as the cabin.

Can you reduce pet travel anxiety?

Our Policy is to transport your pet with the minimum amount of stress involved. We will find the most direct route available, with little time spent confined in the kennel as possible. Additionally, there are certain products you can purchase, such as Feliway, which is a natural pheromone to induce a calmer state.

Will my pet be stressed from the flight?

Your pet will be pleased to see you and will probably enjoy a good meal at the end of their flight, but most animals travel very well and relax throughout the flight. There are more than a million pets that fly safely every year worldwide, and the captain will act appropriately if there are any animals aboard.

Can I take my cat on holiday with me?

We can let you know if this is possible if you let us know which airline you will be flying with and on which day. We will make every effort to book cargo space on the same flight as your pet. To avoid you incurring unnecessary costs, it is advisable for us to check availability for pets before you book your own flight if you wish to travel at the same time

Can my pet travel with adaptive collars/or flat collars?

It is advised by every airline that pets do not travel wearing a collar of any kind as they are deemed a choking hazard. However, they will be able to travel with the containers attached to their airline-approved crate in order to be able to refit them when they reach their destination. 

Can my dog/cat fly alone?

Yes, your dog/cat can be booked as manifest cargo and can fly alone to most locations.

Do I have access to my pet during the flight?

Both passengers and crew are not permitted access to the cargo hold. During refueling and transit stops, passengers will not be permitted access to their pets.

What if my pet needs to urinate during the flight?

Unfortunately, little accidents sometimes do happen, so the crates are lined with absorbable puppy training pads to help soak up any little accidents that do occur. Like humans, your pet may experience a little dehydration during the flight, which will reduce the need for urination. Also, do not feed your pet the morning before travel as this may increase the risk of defecation or vomiting.

How to book with pet ticket with airlines?
First, you must make sure all the important documents are ready for your pet. You must have your pet microchipped and rabies vaccination and vaccination record for airlines. Airlines need to have all documents prepared so they could book the pet cargo/ excess baggage for you, as they do not want your hassle from the trip. The customs would not accept pets import their countries if the documents are not well prepared, your pet may have to quarantine or even be banned for import their countries, your pet may need to turn back to your origin. Hence, airlines need all documents ready so they could reserve a seat for your pet. 
Lastly, it is important to note that some airlines will not allow you to book directly with them to fly your cat internationally to some countries. Instead, you’ll be required to hire a pet-shipping company with an airline account. This is because they want to have the assurance that the import procedures and paperwork were completed correctly to avoid any penalties or fees.
What is the difference between ‘Excess Baggage’ and ‘Air Cargo’?

When you travel with your pet and you both check in at the passenger terminal, this is termed ‘excess baggage,’ however, your pet will still travel in the animal hold. Air Cargo can be used when you travel with your pet or if your pet is traveling without you. Your pet will be checked in through the cargo terminal at your departing airport and the cargo terminals of modern-day airports are used to handling and caring for animals. Some even have specialized rooms for holding animals.

Why my pet could not travel in cabin/ excess baggage with me on the same flight?
Although several airlines, domestic and international, accept pets as carry-on or excess baggage, you could travel with them. Carry-on pets must adhere to strict size restrictions, along with limitations regarding available space (both on board the airplane and in the cargo hold). Most airlines place a strict limit on the number of pets that can travel in the plane’s cabin. Several will only allow one or two animals per flight.
Normally, airlines only accept cats and small dogs travel in the cabin with their owner, their weight must be < 8kg (17lbs) and the owner must put them in either a small soft pet container or IATA approved pet crate. One important thing you must know, some breeds like bulldog, wolf-dog and snub-nosed pets like exotic shorthair and pugs may be restricted by airlines. You may check with the airlines if you would like to travel with your pet in the cabin. 
For traveling in the baggage compartment (excess baggage), airlines could accept pets under 32kg -40kg to travel as excess baggage with the same flight. However, some countries may be restricted for pet travel as excess baggage due to their pet import policy, some countries may even do not accept pets for importing their countries. You have to reach the airline for further enquiries if you do not want to travel separately with your pets. If airlines do not accept pet travel on the same flight, you have to ship your dog in Manifest Cargo by the airlines’ cargo service. 
One key point to note, airlines may NOT ACCEPT pet travel in-cabin with TRANSIT Flight (Connecting Flight) from different airlines, some airlines may even serve pets in a direct flight.  Due to the COVID19 pandemic, some airlines have stopped pet check-in and limit pet travel.
For pet travel in cargo separately, the cost will be straightly expensive than pet travel in the baggage compartment or travel in a cabin. Your pet must be put in the IATA-approved pet crate and follow the LAR (Live Animal Regulations) by airlines.
In addition to large and giant breed dogs traveling in extremely large crates, some passenger aircraft aren’t able to handle such oversized cargo. Keep in mind that the airlines must adhere to the International Animal Transport Association’s Live Animal Regulations (IATA/LAR) and they will require you to do the same. Taking your pet on the plane with you seems to be an attractive, affordable option. However, be aware that you run the very real risk of your pet missing the flight if there is no space available onboard or in cargo, or if you have not complied with the IATA/LAR.
