Default Re: Pet relocation to Australia


Why some parts of the world like Australia and New Zealand are strict with pets entry?
This is to minimise the risk of exotic diseases being introduced into Australia.
Australia is free from many animal-related diseases found in other parts of the world. This is include Brunei, New Zealand, UK etc...
Europe has now started introducing Pet Travel Scheme or PETS - "... a system which allows animals to travel easily between member countries without undergoing quarantine. A Pet Passport is a document that officially records information related to a specific animal, as part of that procedure.
The effect is to drastically speed up and simplify travel with and transport of animals between member countries, compared to previous procedures, if the regulations are followed. Pets can only travel through Animal Reception Centres that are currently licenced with DEFRA." quoted from Wikipedia.

Termasuk negeri Sabah dan Sarawak pets kena kuarantin. They are known as 'Rabies-free zone'. Have pets that are not allowed or banned to enter -kindly ask the local Jabatan Haiwan for more info.

We just hope Malaysia become member of PETS, though .

Hi everyone,

I have some good news regarding the tests (Ehrlichiosis, Brucellosis, Leptospirosis and Leishmaniosis) you need to do for your dog before taking them to Australia.

This is the web page detailing all the required tests you need to do:

I sent an email to AQIS asking about approved labs in Malaysia and this was the reply I received from them:

Thank you for your email regarding approved laboratories in Malaysia.

Unfortunately AQIS has not approved any laboratories in Malaysia and we recommend sending the blood samples to one of the following:

Veterinary Laboratory Branch
Animal & Plant Health Inspection Division
Primary Production Department
Central Veterinary Laboratory
13 Jalan Seranggong Kechil
Telephone: 46 1867 4000
Fax: 46 1830 9162

Alternatively, you can send samples to the Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) at:

Dr Stephen Prowse
Acting Director, AAHL
CSIRO Livestock Industries
Australian Animal Health Laboratory
Private Bag 24
Geelong VIC 3220
Phone: +61 3 5227 5000
Fax: +61 3 5227 5555
E-mail: AAHL-Reception@csiro.au
Web: http://www.csiro.au/places/aahl.html
Web page for import/ export blood testing: http://www.csiro.au/services/ps62.html
Check out the rates of the tests in Australia:


It is quite expensive...

Ehrilichia canis - AUD $159
Brucella canis - AUD $63.64
Leptospira canicola - AUD $81.82
Leishmaniosis infantum - AUD $150
Overseas testing surcharge - AUD $110

Total: AUD $564.46

Excluding AUD $209.09 Nipah virus test, the special box you need to purchase to store the serum and the FedEx charges to Australia.

Only the Nipah virus test has to be done in CSIRO, Australia. The rest can be done in the Singapore lab.

Since I am from Singapore, I will find out the charges and procedures of sending my dog's serum to that lab for testing. Let's hope it will be cheaper. I know the FedEx charges to Singapore will be cheaper for sure!

Regarding the RNATT test, I did it at the Shah Alam government vet clinic.

They charged only RM $20 for each blood sample and RM $48 to insert a microchip into my dog.

The blood serum was sent to Biobest Laboratories in the UK.


They charge 32.50 GBP per test.


I bought a plastic container with clips on the side and sponge for about RM $10 at Tesco to store the serum tubes. The FedEx charges to Biobest cost me RM $117.55.
