    Moving HK to Sydney

    Hello

    Can anyone recommend a removalist company from HK to Sydney, Australia?

    I also have a puppy dog that will need moving too - can anyone advise me on the process / companies that can arrange this?

    Thank you

    This website will answer your AQIS questions.

    Bringing Cats and Dogs and other pets to Australia - DAFF

    I would also check with an Australian educated vet employed here, as to the immunisation procedure and blood test thats required prior to your departure, off the top of my head you need to arrange that 6 months before you arrive on Australian soil.

    Further adding to my previous post.

    Here is a PDF document outlining the entire Australian import procedure in regard to dogs and cats via a category 4 country ie Hong Kong. I'd say we have the worlds toughest quarantine laws globally, so I'd cross your T's and dot your I's, as there are no exceptions given..

    We used these guys to move some stuff and our pets back to Sydney. Both seemed to take care of everything for us, all the paperwork for AQIS and Customs etc.

    Worth a mention, though it is probably on the AQIS site... your pet will need to have a Rabies test done a minimum of 5 months before export to Oz, and a final month in quarantine in Oz before they will be allowed out/home. So you need to get all this done 6 months before you move, or your pet can be bouarded in quarantine kennels until the appropriate quarantine time is up... Louise at petmovers is pretty good with all this though...
