Pets are allowed in the UAE. However, as you are making the decision to transport your pet please consider the summer temperatures in Dubai, as they are often too high for pets to spend much time outdoors. Pets must be shipped to the UAE as cargo which can be expensive.
When calling in the exterminator to get rid of cockroaches, ants etc Move One Pet Transportation would like to remind you to remove your pets from the premises. Your pets should be transported to a safe location while the professionals do their job and in some cases you may need to keep your animals away from the home for several hours after treatment for safety purposes. Check with the Pest Control company how long the pets should be kept away from the home.
As well as taking your pets out of the home you should also remove all their bedding, food bowls and toys they may chew. Granular lawn products may require keeping the pets off the treated area for 24 hours or longer while the granules dissolve and the treated area dries. Read more

Pets are placed in “hold 5”, at the rear of the plane. It is part of the cargo area underneath the cabin, but it is separated and it is heated. It is kept at the same temperature and pressure as the cabin, since the captain is notified of animals on board.
“What will my pet be traveling in on the flight?”
Your pet will need to fly in a flight kennel made to IATA specifications, with enough room inside for the pet to stand up, turn around and lie-down in. Boxes can be made out of plastic or the appropriate kind of wood, and will need a water bowl and funnel for pet travel. Move One Pet Transportation can supply you with a flight kennel or if you have your own, and it is suitable, we can fly your pet in that crate. Read more
“I would like to emphasise that there is no need to transport pets during the summer holidays,” said Margit Muller, a veterinarian and director of the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital, which also manages an animal shelter and pet-care centre.
“It is much better for the pet to stay in a pet hotel like the pet hotel of the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital Pet Care Centre where the animal is very well cared for. This considerably reduces the stress for the pet caused by transporting them.”
Abhi Chhetri, pet-relocation adviser for the American Veterinary Clinic (AVC) in Abu Dhabi, also recommends waiting until autumn to transport pets overseas. Read more
