Transporting Your Pets & Quote Request

KATZNK9Z are a premium provider of international Pet Transport from Christchurch's International Airport.

Pet Transport is an all essential part of a family's move between countries so a reliable pet courier is very important. We are expert international pet couriers. We arrange and carry out pet transport of your dog or cat to your new country, whether it is Australia, USA or the UK.

We are MPI registered and only use crates approved by the IATA for your pet's journey.

If you require pet transport within New Zealand, please call Air New Zealand directly at 0800 737 737 (Pet Transport). You are able to arrange flights yourself – we only arrange within NZ where there is connection to an international flight.

Australia Only

All dogs and cats traveling to Australia are required to be micro-chipped.

There are several things useful to understand for anyone looking for pet transportation to move their dogs to Australia:

  • We will need from the owner proof of New Zealand residency of their dog, i.e. yearly vet/vaccine records since puppies (maximum 12 weeks of age) or yearly council registration docs since puppies, or a combination of both.
  • If neither of these are available then bloods for E.Canis and Leishmania will be required. (Recommended having taken 3 weeks before travel)
  • If originally imported from Australia then we will require proof of entry into NZ, i.e. the Biosecurity clearance document from their arrival and then yearly proof of residency since then.

United Kingdom

Cats and dogs travelling to the UK and Ireland must be micro-chipped and be vaccinated for Rabies at least 21 days before entering the UK (new regulations from 1 Jan 2012).

For travel to most of Europe a Rabies vaccination is required at least 21 days before the flight. The Rabies vaccination must be administered AFTER the animal has been micro-chipped.

Transport Quote Request

Please note, we organise pet transport internationally, not for transport within New Zealand - unless it is part of an international connection.

"Just a short note to say thank you so very much for the safe arrival of Bones the cat to Australia!
We are very appreciative of your wonderful care of her whilst she was in the cattery for 2 weeks and then the time and professional help you have shown in her export to Australia.
Your wisdom was much appreciated and she appeared at Rockhampton Airport in wonderful condition.
I will certainly be recommending your service to all. You have done a wonderful job."
