Budapest is one of the largest cities in Europe for holidaymakers and Expats alike with a high standard of living and lower costs than Western cities. It is no surprise that plenty of families are moving to Budapest and taking their pets along with them.
Located on the river Danube, Budapest and Hungary are members of the EU but since they kept their own currency in the Florint, the cost of living is particularly lower there than you will find elsewhere.
Step 1 – Your dog or cat needs a microchip.
Step 2 – They then need a rabies vaccination. They must be at least 3 months old before they have this. Some rabies vaccines in the UK last for 3 years and others will last for 3 years but need a top up after one year, so you need to know when the vaccine expires.
Step 3 – Your vet issues you with a pet passport and 21 days after the initial vaccination, your pet can travel to Europe and back again.
Step 4 – If your pet is travelling by plane, then the airlines demand that they are checked within 5 days of the flight to ensure that they are fit and healthy.
All European countries accept the pet passport and Hungary is no different. Once you have the pet passport, all you will need is to contact a quality Pet Transport company to complete your move.
