Pet passports

I recently moved to Phuket from the UK and brought my cat and my dog with me. I realize that when I take my pets back to the UK they will be subject to British quarantine requirements, but I also understand that the same requirements do not apply in Europe. A friend told me that the Gazette published an article about pet “passports” being available in Phuket. Having pet passports could make it easier for my pets to enter certain European countries. I’m keen to know more about the scheme and how to join it. I am anxious to comply with whatever legislation...

To obtain a pet passport, pet owners must take their pets to the Phuket Provincial Livestock Office (PPLO) on Narisorn Rd in Phuket Town. They will need to bring a photo of themselves; two 7.62 cm x 12.7 cm photos of the right side of the pet’s head and two of the left side; details such as the pet’s breed, age and name; and a record of the vaccines, and the dates administered, given to the dog. For additional information (on pet passports), call the PPLO at 076-216934.
