Some countries allow passengers to carry with them pets such as dogs, cats and birds as check-in baggage. Passengers travelling with pets are responsible for providing all documents required by local government offices (i.e. health certificate and travel permits for the pets). For Hong Kong regulatory information regarding live animal transition, please refer to Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department. For import/export/transit regulations of a particular country, please refer to IATA Travel Centre (Choose your destination from the dropdown list under Customs, Currency & Airport information Section), and IATA Traveller’s Pets Corner.
Passengers travelling with service animals can access more information in our Service Animal section.
Unaccompanied pets or pets not acceptable as check-in baggage must be shipped through cargo. For more details, please contact our Cargo Sales Offices.
