Transporting Pet Cats and Dogs from Sri Lanka to Australia

As per the current regulations set by the Government of Australia, it is not possible to send your pet child directly from Sri Lanka to Australia as Sri Lanka has been classified as a Non-Approved country. Nonetheless, the Government of Australia has prescribed a solution for pets travelling from Non-approved countries such as Sri Lanka.

As per the guidelines suggested by Department of Agriculture - Australia, we can safely relocate your pet child to Australia via an approved country (category 2 or 3) (e.g. Singapore). We have relocated so many pets from Sri Lanka to Australia via Singapore and we can highly recommend the services in Singapore.

The pet child will stay in Singapore for approx 50+/- days (The first 30 days will be at the Singapore Sembawang Animal Quarantine station and the remainder will be under the care of our pet travel partner in Singapore) and undergo the required vaccinations / blood tests as required by the Australian Government. Once 50+ days is completed, the pet child will be flown from Singapore to Melbourne, Australia. There is only one entry point for live animals in Australia - which is Melbourne. The new quarantine station in Australia will be in Mickleham, Victoria. (Read more

Once the pet child lands in Melbourne, the pet child will be quarantined for 10 days at the Mickleham Post Entry Quarantine Facility by the Australian Government before being handed over to you. If you are living in another city / state other than Melbourne, our pet relocation partner in Australia can arrange a domestic flight for your pet child from Melbourne to any major airport within Australia. We can even do a door-delivery to your door-step wherever you are.
