Just started thinking about arranging to move the doggy over to Oz with us in March next year. We are hoping to arrive at the same time and the plan is we will be staying in Melbourne near the Animal station for a few weeks, however as yet we donít have a definite address/ date for our arrival.
We noticed when applying for the import license (which we can do within 6 months of travel) we have to give the importers details and an Australian address/ contact number. It suggests if you don't know this yet you should give the name of a friend/ family member or representative in Australia, however we don't have any of the above as yet! Any ideas Ė maybe we just need to wait till we have arranged accommodation in Melbourne?
Also on a general note any one got any experience on shipping their pets to Melbourne? I'd be interested to hear others peoples experience of visiting their pets at the Quarantine station in Melbourne, it say twice a week by prior arrangement, is this quite strict?
