MOVING PETS TO WALLIS AND FUTUNA: HOW IS THIS DONE?
Now that your big departure for Wallis and Futuna has been confirmed, here are the steps that you’ll need to follow for the transportation of your pet.
Your pet needs to follow the same protocol as for New Caledonia, as they will spend ten days in quarantine in Nouméa, before being able to reach their new home!
By choosing the PREMIUM package, we can take care of all, or some of these steps for you.
The minimum time period between the start of formalities to be carried out and your pet’s trip is at least five months.
VETERINARY PROTOCOL AND ADMINISTRATIVE STEPS REGARDING YOU DOG, CAT AND OTHER ANIMALS TRANSPORT TO WALLIS AND FUTUNA
The importation of your pets to New Caledonia is subject to:
- The implantation of a microchip is not compulsory (tattoos are accepted in New Caledonia!!)
- A vaccination protocol:
- Rubarth’s disease (Hepatitis)
- Bordetella Bronchiseptica
- Coryza (Calicivirus and Viral Rhinotracheitis)
- Infectious Panleukopenia
- Rabies titration dating less than a year, but more than three months prior to the transportation date.
- Obtaining an import permit accompanied by a document named the Veterinarian Certificate for Importation.
The Veterinary Certificate must be filled in by your usual veterinarian
Once you’ve obtained the import permit and the Veterinarian Certificate for Importation from the SIVAP (Department for Veterinarian, Food and Phytosanitary Inspection).
- Booking of a quarantine period. Your furry friend will need to stay in quarantine for approximately ten days before making the most of the well-deserved cuddles they’ll be getting when you meet with them again.
In the 30 days preceding your pet’s trip by aeroplane to Nouméa, you will need:
- To have internal and external anti-parasite treatments done
Have screening done for:
- Canine Ehrlichiosis
- Canine Brucellosis
- Leptospirosis (if the dog has not been vaccinated against Leptospirosis)
- Canine Babesiosis
- Babesia Gibsoni
In the four days prior to the transportation of your dog or cat to Nouméa, don’t forget:
- Anti-parasite treatments, both internal and external
- To have your vet complete the Veterinarian Certificate for Importation
- To have all documents certified by the DDPP Department – to contact them-
No stamps, no departure!
On the day of departure, we will handle sealing of your pet’s travel cage, which must be IATA-approved, by the approved veterinarian.
They themselves will report the seal number on the Veterinarian Certificate.
After a few hours spent on the aeroplane (on average 25 hours) and about ten days in animal quarantine in Paita, your pet will finally be able to enjoy their brand new home, with all the stroking, tickling and big cuddles that go with it!!
Take note that the importation rules differ depending on the animal category. Contact us.
During their quarantine period, to ensure that your pet can be imported into Wallis and Futuna, you will need:
