QuoteCommercial import of dogs, cats and ferrets to England and Scotland from Belarus, Poland, Romania or UkraineEngland and Scotland have temporarily suspended the commercial import of dogs, cats and ferrets if they originate from or have been dispatched from Ukraine, Belarus, Poland or Romania, until 14 May 2022.Commercial imports are the sale of or the transfer of ownership of a pet animal. This includes rescue animals and if you are travelling with more than 5 dogs, cats or ferrets if these animals are not attending training for a competition, show or sporting event.This suspension does not apply to non-commercial pet animals from these countries.This decision has been taken because of the serious health risk to humans and animals in England and Scotland from commercial cats, dogs and ferrets from Ukraine, Belarus, Poland or Romania that do not comply with UK health and documentation requirements. These countries are at high-risk of rabies.The risk has been exacerbated by serious cases of non-compliance from countries neighbouring Ukraine which are experiencing high volumes of animal movements at present.
