Pet Transport: Quarantining Snakes and Reptile
When your pet snake, lizard, turtle or other reptile travels to another state or another country, you'll need to consider the destination's quarantine requirements
Choosing a specialist pet transport company will not only ensure your pet is transported in the best and safest manner, but equally importantly, that all paperwork is done and quarantine requirements met.
Ask your pet transporter about quarantine when moving your pet interstate or overseas. A reputable company will have an AQIS (Australian Quarantine Inspection Services) accredited vet, who will examine your reptile before departure and sign the appropriate forms.
