Some of the Requirements

EU Annex IV and other Certificates

Belgium is one of those countries where there are 3 national languages and English is none of them, therefor we provide you (and BelgianCustoms) with documents in English, French and Dutch to help you get trough arrivals as fast as possible.

Other pets like birds require a different approach and are often subject to CITES regulations, please ask us  contact@jetpetglobal.com  for our pet moving services to Belgium.
