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.
Believe it or not many Dubai residents (including pet owners) are starting to plan for their Spring and Summer holidays. Whilst many pet owners in Dubai vacate for the entire summer, taking their pets with them, other pets will remain in Dubai. Of the owners bidding a tearful goodbye to their pets for the holidays many opt to entrust them to one of the boarding facilities on offer in Dubai. If you too are planning to kennel your pets this Spring or Summer now is the best time to start making enquiries and reservations. Boarding facilities are in high demand over these periods and tend to book out very quickly. Read more
When shipping your pet to join you at your new destination you will want to make sure they are going to be as comfortable as possible. Move One Pet Transportation advises to let your pet get accustomed to the kennel before it travels, it usually takes two to five days to adjust to the kennel environment. To avoid air sickness make sure you give your pet a small meal no later than 12 hours before the flight. Avoid using sedatives or tranquilizers on your pet as they may lead to injuries during transport and lastly place a blanket, towel, or shredded paper at the bottom of the kennel for your pet’s comfort but do not include any chewable toys.

As a follow up from our article ‘The Real Costs of Owning a Pet’, we wanted to help answer the question: “Well how much will it cost me to take my pet back to my country?”
The truth is, it’s dependent on a whole lot of factors and owners should get an exact quote for their pet. If you are looking to adopt a cat or dog, it never hurts to pick up the phone and have a chat with a pet relocation company to get a guideline on price and requirements for the animal, should you return home.
But that doesn’t answer the question.
Unfortunately, we can’t provide details on the cost of every animal, of every weight/size, to every country. However, to provide a ‘ball park figure’ to those relocating with a pet, we decided to create an ‘Example Family’ and we contacted Move One Pet Transportation & Services to get some figures.
