Pet Transport: Quarantining Rabbits and Rodents

When your pet rabbit, guinea pig, rat or mouse travels to another state or another country, you'll need to consider the destination's quarantine

Choosing a specialist pet transport company will not only ensure your pet is transported in air-conditioned comfort to and from the airport, but equally importantly, that all paperwork is done and quarantine requirements met.

Ask your pet transporter about quarantine when moving your pets interstate or overseas. A reputable company will have an AQIS (Australian Quarantine Inspection Services) accredited vet, who will examine your pet before departure and sign the appropriate forms.

Interstate travel for rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and mice

Most Australian states allow rabbits (link to rabbit transport article) and pet rodents (link to guinea pigs rats and mice article) to travel between states without a permit. However, Queensland requires a permit to allow guinea pigs and pet rodents into the state.

Tasmania has restrictions on rabbits. You need a permit to bring pet rabbits into the state, and rabbits are not allowed on Flinders Island, King Island or any of the smaller Bass Strait islands.

Sending your rabbit or pet rodent to another country

Every country has specific requirements as to animals which are allowed to be imported. The Australian Quarantine service AQIS, advises that you contact the relevant country's consulate or embassy in your nearest capital city for specific information about importing your pet.
