Belgium has a big heart for all pets but dogs are the most loved with every one in 10 having a man’s best friend
as companion. From being able to walk dogs on long stretches of flat beach, taking them for a coffee or a train
ride to the Ardennes, Belgium has a lot to offer! The veterinaries are of a very high standard and pet supplies,
kennels, catteries and pet schools are found everywhere.
EU rule states that pets must fly within 5 days of the owner to be considered a ‘non-commercial’ pet relocation,
otherwise the costs will increase along with change in import requirements. Pet Moving Services to Belgium for
non commercial and commercial relocation are available.

used. Please ask us about our carryon bags, we may have the perfect colour for your tiny Persian, for the pets

Some of the Requirements
Belgium is one of those countries where there are 3 national languages and English is none of them, therefor we
provide you (and Belgian Customs) with documents in English, French and Dutch to help you get through arrivals
as fast as possible. Other pets like birds require a different approach and are often subject to CITES
regulations, please ask us at email@example.com for our pet moving services to Belgium.
Your pet needs to be microchipped before it is vaccinated against rabies, it should be at least 15 weeks old at
the time of relocation and have all core vaccinations in place. Core vaccinations protect your dog against
Rabies, Distemper, Parainfluenza, Bordetella and Hepatitis, cats require vaccination against Panleukopenia,
Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis and Calicivirus.
Dogs need to be registered at the Belgian Association of Canine Identification and Registration in case they get
lost or are abandoned.
Belgium has good domestic pet insurances covering risks related to accidents and illnesses.
