Hi, we are bringing our dog into Egypt from Mauritius through Cairo Airport next week. BA have just asked if we have already organized our own broker - is this really necessary and if so does anyone have any recommendations (preferably contactable by email)?

Many thanks

Hello

I am guessing if BA have asked if you have a broker then you need one, I would also guess if you don't then they will not take your dog.
All guess work on my part

Thanks-
Well, the interesting thing is that we replied that we would just bring an Egyptian vet along with us to help out at customs, and they seemed perfectly happy with that! I am just wondering now if a broker may be a better idea - and would they save us money or cost us money overall!

Hi Jutta,
Are you saying that you take your dog with you in and out of Cairo and he does not have to do quarentine after you take him out of Egypt? I'm curious as we have a dog and put off coming to Egypt because if we wanted to leave and he would have to do 6months quarentine in UK, thats where we are from. Also he is quite old and not sure he would cope with the travel.

hi there,
case is our dog has been following us the past 6years from salzburg to mombay,from there to tunesia from there to cairo,he is 7years old now,but our base is austria,they dont have quaratane there,my husband is british,as long there is no vaccination from countries like asia or africa or whatever within europe you can bring your pet back to uk without quarantene
thats one of the reasons my dog,jason will alsways be vaccinated in europe ,stamps etc..never show anything else and since there is new law in uk ,no more quarentene from ec thats fine for me..
hope that helps
