Animal Health Certificates
After you have booked your flight, please contact us to arrange an appointment for an AHC.
UK passports are no longer valid for travel in the EU.
AHC needs to be issued 10days before travelling.
The patient needs to be vaccinated against Rabies (animals must be 12 weeks or older to have a rabies vaccine).
We will need proof of rabies vaccination ( if you are NOT a client of woodland vet centre).
Please note the AHC is NOT issued on the day of the appointment. This allows the vet to complete and double check all paper work. This is why we ask for the appointment to be book for several days before your holiday.
If the patient does have an EU passport, it CAN travel without an AHC.
UK vets are NOT allowed to update EU passports, so if the rabies vaccination has expired, a UK vet can give the vaccination BUT the patient will require an AHC.
If you are a frequent traveller, we would advise to get your pet's rabies vaccine booster whilst you are in the EU. The EU vet can update the passport therefore a AHC will NOT be required.
Any further questions please contact us.
