Incoming UK Teammates with Pets!

Below is key information about shipping pets from the United States to the United Kingdom. We recommend you also do your own research to ensure you have the most accurate and up to date information!  The direct link to the needed documents for bringing your pet into the United Kingdom is Another great resource that gives detailed instruction on what needs to be accomplished before bringing your pet into the United Kingdom is the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) website

The completed health certificate MUST be endorsed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) after the tapeworm treatment (dogs only) has been done. This should be documented on the UK health certificate by a veterinarian. The easiest way to get this done is to use a military veterinary treatment facility and If you are not near a military vet, then the forms will need to be sent to the USDA for certification via the USDA website above.

Patriot Express Riders w/ Pets MUST DOs:

*             Send health certificate named under the “pets name” and “owners last name” over to (first letter of email is a lowercase “L”) any time after being issued and prior to endorsement and tapeworm; however copies of the USDA endorsed documents with the tapeworm treatment will need to be sent at least 48-hours before traveling. You must travel with the originals.

*             Animal Aircare LTD will review all documents as a pre-inspection before departing to the UK and will also provide feedback to any documents they deem incorrect


*             Once Animal Aircare LTD approves your paperwork, they will email you with a payment link to pay for the UK pet entry fee of approximately £270 per pet. After this, you are authorized to depart BWI via the Patriot Express with your pet.
