Most frequent questions and answers
Yes, it is quite a complex process to bring your pet to China from South Africa. However, PETport is well-versed in transporting pets safely throughout the world and we will assist you with every aspect of the process.
Your pet should be perfectly fine. Usually, it is the owner that is more nervous! Pets have a way of “hunkering down” in the animal carriers and if you can include the favorite blanket, this will help a lot. You can also use Calmeze tablets for dogs and Calmeze gel for cats and can administer this 1 hour before flying.
No, there is no quarantine, as long as you adhere to all the documentation requirements and your pet has a Rabies titer test.
It is actually cheaper than you think! The cost will depend on the size of your pet and your final destination within China. Contact us today for an accurate quote and get things moving!
