Exporting Pets out of Taiwan

So bummed right now. I was doing my research about taking my dogs with me to Australia- I wanted to do the one year (or possibly 2 year) working holiday with them in tow, but now I'm thinking one month quarentine isn't justifiable for only a year visit. I absolutely won't abandon my pets.
Anybody have any thoughts on this? Is the quarentine period ever waived?
sad =( Really wanted to explore the land down under....with my dogs...

Pets essentially still live in the days of the sailing ships. If they ever make a long journey to another country, its a once in a lifetime kinda thing.

My two taiwanese persian cats were born and raised on taiwan and now buried in Napa, calif.

Hi guys, really need some help here. Trying to sort everything out in order to export my dog with me to IRELAND.

I was given the following list of things to do by the relevant authority in Ireland:
1. Microchip
2. Rabies vaccination
3. Rabies serological blood test
4. Six month wait after blood test
5. Tick & tapeworm treatment, etc.

Has anyone got experience of doing the blood test? I have been told that this can only be done at certain labs, so the blood sample needs to be sent abroad to be tested. The six month wait period begins whenever the results are successful - but I may not be able to wait this long.

Would I need this blood test to enter the UK? The dog is chipped and got her rabies vaccination. I know other people who have exported dogs to US and this was all they were required to do. If the blood test is not necessary, I could fly into Northern Ireland in order to get around this. I am really unsure of what to do so I hope someone here can help.

I don't know where you are based but if you are in Taipei you can go to Yang Ming in Tianmu (0228726911) for the rabies test.

It will be sent off to the EU and it's a 6 month wait.
You will just need to take the dog, have the blood extracted and pay the fee - around 6,000NT.
You should have your result back in about a month.

Entry into the UK will need this unless you want a 6 month quarantine wait.

Those rules are probably only for the UK and Ireland ... rabies free zones?

Thanks for the help guys.

Took her to Yang Ming, and everything should be fine, although it was pricey - 8000NT.

Glad I have it sorted. Thanks to Cake for the info.

Purewater,

Actually the six month waiting period starts from the date of the rabies vaccination if the results are successful. you should get the results back within a month.

However, I would suggest also going through a shipping company, such as http://www.porschintl.com/

If your dog has to go through Hong Kong then it's a completely different kettle of fish and you need other documents for this. I'm not sure if animals can fly directly to Ireland or the UK, in previous cases they have had to go through Hong Kong. I also believe (but not 100% sure) that if your flight is through Thailand the UK won't accept this.

You now have 6 months to prepare so you have time to research all the avenues. Previous people on here have done it themselves, Animals Taiwan has recently sent two dogs to the UK and we used Porsch Int with great success.

Good luck.

I want to take two dogs with me to central America, but my problem is that one is very big and heavy around 36 kg. My question is will I have to carry the dog or pick her up or something??? or do the people in the airport help you?? I'm scared because im only 1.50 and I am really not strong. so do you think this will be a problem?? I would have to change flights at LAX. another question for going to the USA my dog doesnt need the rabbies serology test right? any reccomendations would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Central American is where exactly. To fly to America you don't usually need very much.

1st rabies vaccinate your dog, one month later, get a certificate from the national university vet hospital and inform your airline that you are taking dogs.

THe crate has to be big enough for the dog to stand up in comfortably. Getting your dog from the car into the airport you'll have to do, once in the airport there are trollies and they airport staff will take care of the dog, however, you will have to check with your airline about weight of excess baggage.
