How to Move to/from China With Your Pet?

You are soon to relocate from/to China and you already sorted out moving your furniture? Awesome! But how about your pet?
What are the Chinese regulations regarding the moving process? Which documents you need to provide?
ASI Movers compiled a guide to help you navigate China’s pet entry-exit requirements.

Is it in your pet’s best interest to relocate with you?

At ASI Movers, we know that your pet is a member of your family. You have a special bound with him/her, and leaving your best friend behind is something hard to consider.
Nevertheless, as for humans, traveling when old or sick is never advised...
As such if your pet is one of these situations, you might consider finding him/her a temporary or a brand new home. Yet, if your best friend is not in one of those conditions requiring extreme decisions. ASI Movers team assures you a stress-free, event free process.

What about the Chinese regulations?

Starting from May 1st, 2019, China applied some changes regarding pet relocation. Animals passing the test inspection and coming from these countries (New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, French Polynesia, Hawaii, Guam, Jamaica, Iceland, The United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Macao) will no longer be subject to quarantine.
However if your pet is not entering from the mentioned countries, you can still avoid quarantine, only and only if, the pet is microchipped, vaccinated for rabies twice, and has a rabies titer test done.
With that being said, if your pet does not respond to these criteria, it will be required to spend 30 days in quarantine, fees are around 300 RMB. Afterwards your pet will be released, if it is determined to be healthy and passed all the tests successfully.

ASI Movers will advise to notify Chinese customs of your pet’s arrival to China.

Relocating to China

Now that you have taken the decision to switch home for the entire family, let’s go more in depth into the process and requirements we will handle with you.

ASI Movers going beyond moving for the Van Cleef & Arpels’ Exhibition in Beijing

At ASI Movers, we are dedicated to provide our partners the fittest and most effective service possible.
From April 21st to August 5th 2018, the Today Art Museum in Beijing was hosting the Van Cleef & Arpels exhibition “When Elegance Meets Art”. The famous high-end jewelry brand was displaying chronologically nearly 400 High Jewelry creations and precious objects as to introduce the evolution of Van Cleef and Arpels’ style.

The jewelries have been displayed in tailor-made displays fitting the exhibition's identity.
