Pet Transport and Dog Shipping to Hong Kong requires special care. You will need to apply for an Import permit from the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department, Hong Kong. You will also need an export health certificate from your local DEFRA authority. The certificate will be sent to the vet of your choice, which will need to be an LVI (Local Veterinary Inspector) vet.  Your local veterinary practice should have an LVI vet.

a) pets must be microchipped. 

b) Pets will need to be vaccinated as follows:  

DOGS:  no less than 10 days and no more than 12 months prior to export, the dog must have been vaccinated against (dogs over 12 weeks of age)ยท   Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus  
-Under 12 weeks of age- not less than 10 days before export, the dog must have been vaccinated against the above, and the dog must be at least 6 weeks old at the time of vaccination.

CATS:  no less than 10 days, no more than 12 months before export, the cat must have been vaccinated against Cat Flu and Infectious Enteritis.


c) There will need to be a final vet check (Which can be done) no more than 14 days prior to pet travel when the vet will complete the export certificate. We recommend that this is done within 4 days of export.

d) Owners of female pets will need to sign a declaration that the PET is not pregnant at the time of export or over 4 weeks pregnant.

e) You will also need to obtain a Declaration from the Captain of the aircraft your pet will be flying with; stating that the pet departed from the UK, he/she is staying on the aircraft, will not be in contact with any other animals and will not be landing in any other countries of lower health status.
