Scrap the New Animal Health Certificate & Re-Negotiate the UK Pet Passport Scheme for UK (free each trip) within Europe
Say ‘NO’ to the additional £125* price hike per trip!
One of the most inconvenient aspects of Brexit for dog (cat or - you may think strangely - ferret) owners, and moreover pet owners who wish to take their animals abroad… and particularly to countries across Europe… The abolition of the long established Pet Passport Scheme is causing disbelief, consternation and anger at the extent of extra red tape and ridiculous, extortionate extra cost!
Movement around Europe under the old scheme was well oiled and seamless - accepted by everyone who needed to use it as ‘the way to go’ into Europe with a pet with no fuss and at no extra cost.
Since Brexit extra charges are levied by UK vets who must complete a 10 page document that has been lamely presented as The Animal Health Certificate; a replacement for the passport at (*an average) cost to dog owners of £125* FOR EVERY overseas trip. Nonsense of course! Someone got the ‘non-negotiation’ within the Withdrawal Document so badly wrong!
There is a lack of knowledge and preparedness amongst many vets over the post Brexit plan. it will most likely be blamed on Covid and the resulting reduction in travel...
Sign The Petition in order to ensure that DEFRA & the Brexit Minister get down to renegotiating the Pet Passport Scheme with our European neighbours. It’s definitely an area which demands their attention.
If something works - which the Pet passport system did brilliantly… Why try and fix it with something more complex and much, much more expensive?
For folks coming to UK from Europe… Nothing changes BUT For UK travellers going into Europe it's £125* extra and more red tape!!
IMPORTANT NOTE: STOP PRESS:- Another petition exists which also deserves your attention with exactly the same end result as its aim:-
