Closed petition Seek to rejoin the EU pet passport scheme
Negotiate to rejoin the EU pet passport scheme now!
The new system of having to go to the vet for an Animal Health Certificate every time I travel to the EU with my pet and, being charged upto £250 for the privilege, is extortionate and overly bureaucratic. This is just one of the many negative consequences of brexit. The Government should negotiate a better deal with the EU in which we can rejoin the pet passport scheme. The new scheme is essentially a punitive tax on pet owners which adversely effects those on lower incomes more than the wealthy.
