Getting to Portugal

Flying to Lisbon from London takes approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes

Pets may be transported with an EU Pet Passport, with the exception of ferrets, which may not be kept as domestic pets in Portugal. The authorities have banned the importation of domestic ferrets to avoid cross breeding with indigenous ferrets in the wild.

Up to five pets may be taken. Rabbits and rodents may travel without a passport but must be declared at the border. Under the PETS scheme, animals travelling from the UK are not subject to quarantine regulations. Consult the airline for their regulations.

The EU Pet Passport contains information about the pet such as its owner, identification number and proof of vaccination against rabies. It is issued by the vet and valid for the life of the pet.

What is the PETS scheme?

The PETS scheme (Pet Travel Scheme) is an agreement which was made by several EU countries to allow the movement of pets between these countries free of quarantine regulations. Since its introduction, other non-EU countries which are free from the rabies virus have subscribed to the PETS scheme.
