And WELCOME TO SPRING! This time of year heralds a flurry of pet relocations and transportation to new and foreign destinations for many people, whether for purposes of pleasure or employment, and completing an international pet move can be a very long and frightening process. While all foreign countries require specific and proprietary import/export documentation, many countries also require import permits and other inoculations, tests, and procedures for legal entry of live animals as well. And airlines have many individual and confusing protocols too. In addition, many restrictions are placed on pet flights during the summer months, and space is at a premium. If you are planning a relocation to another country at any time of year, we cannot stress enough the need to begin the export process for your pet as far in advance of your departure date as possible. To insure that all of the above mentioned items are completed correctly, and within the prescribed timeframes, you'll find that using a professional pet shipper will significantly enhance and simplify your relocation experience. A company such as VIP PET TRANSPORT, which ships pets worldwide on a daily basis, and is familiar with the procedures that accompany each country's protocols, will save you money, time and heartache, while easing your stress as well as that of your pet during his or her journey. Please remember the old adage ..... "PLAN AHEAD" ..... and avoid having to leave your beloved pet behind due to insufficient preparation for your pet's transportation. Getting your "Best Friends" to their new location may, indeed, be the most important part of your trip!
