Default Bring a dog back to the UK in Jan 21

Hi
I am driving to France with my dog on 26th Dec, returning on Sun 3rd January 2021.

I have just realised that the UK Brexit transition period ceases at the end of this year, will this effect my return ?

Many thanks Ian (& Henry)

You may want to re-ask this question next month. By then we should know whether talks between the UK and the EU have gone anywhere and if there might be an extension of the transition period. (Yeah, I know Boris has "sworn" there won't be any further extensions - but you just never know these days what Boris might do at the last minute....)

Since you seem to be talking about a brief trip to France and return to the UK (which sounds like a tourist visit), I think you would be wise to check the regulations, or proposed regulations, in the UK. Though to be honest, I am not sure if that is what you are asking, what citizenship you have or what rights of residence in either France of the UK.

Or were you intending to relocate to France before the end of the transition period? Do you have a house in France? Or you intending to return to France very shortly after 3 January, or were you thinking this very brief trip would in some way establish your residence in France?

Hi
I am just going to my French holiday home for a week, but I will be going when the transition period is in place but will be coming back after it expires.
Thanks Ian

I actually can't see a problem as pet passports should still be acceptable in France when you arrive and you will still have the right to visit on the date of arrival, though I have no idea what might apply in the UK when you return. Departing France after transition should definitely not be an issue.

Hi, see this information https://www.gov.uk/guidance/pet-travel-to-europe-after-brexit

I have been following the situation as we have a holiday home in France and a dog. My interpretation is it won't be a problem if the transition is extended or we leave with a deal.

It will be a problem for taking dogs to EU if we leave with no deal as it then depends on whether we are classed as a listed 3rd country. In the best case there will be little change in how things work but in the worse case (unlisted country) it will be a lot hassle and expense to take your dog abroad. I feel that we will end up being a listed 3rd country (hopefully by April when we will first travel in 2021) but it may take time to sort out if we leave with no deal so taking your dog in January may not be straightforward in this scenario.

However looking closely at the link I gave you, I think you will be ok as it is just the return journey you have to worry about and it and it says:

"Return to the UK
There will be no change to the current health preparations for pets entering Great Britain from the EU from 1 January 2021.
Your pet must have one of the following documents when returning to the UK:

- an EU pet passport (issued in the EU or in the UK before 1 January 2021)
- the AHC issued in the UK used to travel to the EU (which you can use up to 4 months after it was issued)
- a UK pet health certificate (for travel into the UK only)"

Do your Dog have a French or British Pet passport?

Further to my last response, where I said it would not be a problem (assuming of course you have a pet passport, the virus might end up being your real problem, esp since you are planning to travel in winter. But I defy anyone and everyone to reliably forecast what might happen in that regard.
