Pet Travel to Australia from Dallas Texas – New Pet Shipping Route on Qantas QF8

AirVets Pet Relocation announces new route to transport pets from DFW Dallas Fort Worth International Airport to Sydney Australia on Qantas flight QF8.

Up until now pets going to Australia from the United States had to travel from Los Angeles or San Francisco California. Over the past year Dr. David Landers has worked with Australia’s Department of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF), the United States Department of Agriculture Animal Plant Health Inspection Service Veterinary Services National Center for Export and Export (USDA APHIS VS NCIE) and Qantas to open up the DFW to SYD routing for pets.

The long process to get all aspects of pet shipping on this flight resulted in the first pets taking this routing on Wednesday October 2nd 2013. All 3 pets on the flight made the trip safely and arrived at the Eastern Creek Quarantine Station in Sydney in good shape and are ready for their new life in Australia once their quarantine period is over.

For the near future pets will be scheduled to fly on Qantas QF8 every Wednesday. In order to prepare them properly for export pets will need to arrive at DFW International Airport by 12pm on Monday the week of the shipment if coming from other areas. Final health certificate work including internal and external parasite treatment, and microchip verification must be completed that afternoon in order to get USDA endorsement for shipment on Wednesday.

If you have a pet that needs to go to Australia, give AirVets Pet Relocation a call and we’ll get them there. Dallas Fort Worth DFW International Airport is convenient to all of the east coast and the central United States.

Moving pets to Lithuania has similar requirements to other European Union countries


Requirements to Ship Pets into Lithuania



Your pet should have an ISO (International Standardization Organization) compliant microchip placed.  This number should be listed on the rabies certificate.


A rabies vaccination should be done AFTER the ISO microchip is placed.  Any vaccinations before microchipping are irrelevant to importation and transportation.  Make sure the microchip numbers is listed on the rabies certificate.

Health Certificates

European Union Annex II veterinary certificate should be completed along with a United States Department of Agriculture USDA 7001 International Health Certificate for Small Animals should be completed.  At least 21 days must have passed after the rabies vaccination before these documents can be signed for transport to Lithuania (this timing will vary between USDA offices).  These must be done by a USDA accredited veterinarian and endorsed by the USDA.  The timing of these documents depends on the origin location due to endorsement logistics.

We can provide all of these services for you or work with your veterinarian to assure that everything is done properly at the appropriate time.
