I travel with my 5kg doggie ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ currently in Thailand.

I always have high resolution photos of every single document on my drive, just in case.

Also have a folder in my carry on bag with the documents, It's been useful to keep her record of import and export permits, for example in Spain they asked me to show her entire proof of travel from the first time she left her origin country (Colombia) to prove that the dog was not an European dog.

All her medical records are kept in the passport (Got her an European passport in Greece), because that's the document they check usually in the airports. But I also keep an spreadsheet with dates, info of the vaccine (Name, number, data of the vet that gave her the vaccines, etc), worms medicine, etc.

Hello,

I am traveling to China with a small dog. After speaking with the embassy, multiple airlines, airports, and other officials, I have been unable to confirm with 100% accuracy the process of traveling with my dog in the cabin.

If anyone has experience flying within Asia with a pet in-cabin, please, can you help and tell me the best source of information?

The last thing I want is to arrive and have the pet taken from me or be denied access at customs, etc.

Many Thanks

smmvywlh Thanks for the reply. I'm also searching for other solutions. ๐Ÿ™‚

hmxwqvcbwybdry Thank you for the detailed response! I appreciate the level of detail you provided. I also find myself carrying all of my pet's documents with me.
Hey, I'm looking for recommendation about how to travel with 6 big dogs. Last year, with my partner, we got 2 golden retrievers. Last month we just adopted 4 puppies from the shelter from the same litter. There are a mix between labrador, estrela mountain dog and huski. So they will be big too. Any idea how to travel the word with big 6 dogs ?

Youโ€™re playing life on hard mode eh? Rooting for you. Let us know when you figure it out. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
Exactly ๐Ÿคฃ
This would be a great idea. I already have train a bit to do dog skateboarding :D
I dont enjoy very much driving. So I was thinking about van life and taking blablacar people who like to drive, so they could to drive me from one place to an other with my van ๐Ÿ˜„
hiradm 3mo
With 6 dogs, I think youโ€™ll need a truck, not a van. ๐Ÿ˜›
Hi Tetley! Where are you traveling from?

I've travel with my 5kg dog in cabin with Turkish airlines from Barcelona to HCMC, Vietnam. And also with Bamboo airlines from Vietnam to Thailand.

With both airlines the process was pretty similar. Book the pet in cabin in advance (I always record the call because I have had issues in the past with airlines denying the booking, so I rather have proof that I called because they always refuse to send a written confirmation)

In Vietnam they asked me to send an email with the dog export and import permit before the flight because they have to send the info to the airport.

Also send an email with the exact picture of the pet carrier bag that you will be taking and ask for written confirmation that they allow that specific pet carrier. In some of this SEA airlines, the website policy says that the carrier must be made of wood, hard mess, etc. and it must also fit underneath your front seat ๐Ÿ˜‘ (I know, it makes no sense)

I was able to use the same carrier that all airlines accept for in cabin dogs. (Rigid fabric, ventilation, waterproof and hard floor, etc)

In terms of documentation, I haven't travelled to China with my dog, so can't say for sure.
If you can, contact a highly rated vet in the country of destination that also has pet travel services to help you with the import permit. This is what I did when traveling from Vietnam to Thailand, it's the only time I have felt the need to pay for any pet travel consultancy or service.

It was not crazy expensive and I honestly preferred to get guidance and help from someone who speaks the local language in case something went wrong.

Most countries would consider that youโ€™re traveling to sell them if you arrive by plane, and documentation will be different - usually theyโ€™re annoying with anything more than 2 or 3. Most planes donโ€™t even have space for so many kennels (again, 2 or 3 kennels are usually okay), and airlines a lot of times only allow one or two dogs under the same name, so flying would be prettyyy hard. Iโ€™d recommend you find a way to fall in love with driving and get a big truck ๐Ÿ˜…
So to make it even more harder we just got a 7th dog yesterday

Youโ€™re the real life version of those โ€œwe might as well get the whole setโ€ videos that are going around on TikTok. ๐Ÿ˜†
kotgrqrs ๐Ÿคฃ
I dont know those video, I will check
ekuyksred I dont see my myself take the plane and get the dog with the luggage. There is share private jet for dog owner now but it's over budget
What about a cruise?
tetley 3mo
Hi akmmcwcyvnuidg thanks for your helpful advice.

Iโ€™m trying to fly into Hong Kong, but it seems less straightforward than I thought.
Official sources arenโ€™t giving clear answers, and speaking to experienced VETs (outside of HK) reveals that authorities are hesitant due to potential liabilities.

So far, it seems I canโ€™t bring my small dog (under 2kg) in the cabin, but cargo seems to be the only optionโ€ฆ.

Your suggestion to contact a local vet is excellent!


Any additional insights would be appreciated.
Thanks

I have 3 dogs, I wouldn't put them through the plane stress so I bought a van to transport them and hopefully we'll acquire a plot of land in Portugal soon

Sacrifices but they gave way more in return. Otherwise I might travel to Cuba or back to South Africa once in a while.
tbh, I think you need to choose between travel and adopting so much dogs, unless you have a ton of money
hiradm 2mo
โ˜๏ธ For this reason my goal is to have a net worth of $40M. Thatโ€™s about where it becomes possible to charter private jets to go anywhere. ๐Ÿ˜‚
mikegwhit 2mo
i feel like your cheapest option is to buy a sailboat that you resell
mikegwhit 2mo
you would think someone would have invented a doggy cargo ship by now
mikegwhit 2mo
in the cruise ship selloff during the pandemic ๐Ÿ˜‚ god just imagining what that would look like makes me so happy
Yeah a pet friendly cruise seems to make perfect sense. I mean you can leave your pet on board while you are on shore. And especially if you have a cat, they will have the same environment for a few weeks and don't need to get familiar with a new hotel every few days.
What's the size of the target market of digital nomads that have pets and don't mind travelling on a cruise. That's gotta be around 5-10 million customers globally?
Actually a lot less, because not a lot of pets would be okay with/tolerate travelling so owners won't bring them.
I adopted a dog in Oaxaca and Iโ€™m getting her service animal certified in Mexico City so itโ€™s illegal for people to turn me away with her. I recommend getting your dog service animal certified. Itโ€™s a little costly and time consuming but itโ€™s way cheaper in Mexico than in the US. In Mexico the school is 3 months in total.
Also, having them be a service animal allows them to fly in cabin with you without checking them in
debbiec 2mo
unfortunately thatโ€™s not a thing in most airlines, afaik only US/Mexico ones wnwnlbpexziiaj
I think that the best affordable combo is van + cruise ship. In some country, it's a bit more dangerous to travel by van, but having 7 dogs make the trip more secure ๐Ÿ˜…
mikegwhit 1mo
what cruise ship did you find?
debbiec 1mo
there are multiple ferries that can take dogs (if theyโ€™re inside the car), but the single cruise ship i heard of that accepts pets is between the US-UK
I'm traveling with only one cat and that is far from easy and relaxed travelling. Could only imagine how difficult it's gonna be with 6 big dogs. Wish you luck)
