BRINGING PETS INTO NEW ZEALAND?
With the exception of cats and dogs arriving from Australia, ALL other pets must meet specific health standards set by the New Zealand MPI (Ministry of Primary Industries) before beginning their new life in New Zealand.
This requires immigrating pets to have vaccinations prior to departure, form stay a minimum of 10 days at a designated quarantine facility upon arrival, where they will be inspected by certified MPI vets in order to gain clearance.
