Britons still face EU red tape when travelling with their furry friends amid ongoing pet passports row

  • Eurocrats have rejected Britain’s latest bid to recognise the UK’s pet passports
  • Brussels won’t countenance allowing UK pets into EU without vet certificate
  • These certificates can cost as much as £180 and are valid for less than 4 months

Eurocrats have rejected Britain’s latest bid to recognise the UK’s pet passports, meaning holidaymakers still face Brexit red tape when travelling to the bloc.

Leaked minutes from negotiations last month show that Brussels won’t countenance allowing British pets to travel to the EU with out a veterinary certificate.

They’ll cost as much as £180 and are valid for less than 4 months, so regular travellers should cough up greater than once.

Eurocrats have rejected Britain’s latest bid to recognise the UK’s pet passports, meaning holidaymakers still face Brexit red tape when travelling to the bloc

In keeping with a memo seen by the Day by day Mail from a gathering last month, EU officials rejected a requirement from British negotiators that the EU recognise its pet passports. 

Brussels said such recognition is ‘available only to non-EU countries who’re dynamically aligned with EU’s animal health regime or working towards such dynamic alignment’.

British officials said the UK’s animal health regulations already fulfil the bloc’s standards because they’ve not modified since Brexit. An exception has already been granted for guide dogs.
