Quarantine Facilities for Cats and Dogs


New Zealand has four MPI approved quarantine facilities for domestic cats and dogs

A permit to import will NOT be issued unless the importer has a letter from a quarantine facility stating that a space has been booked for the animal. This quarantine booking confirmation should be sent with your import permit application.

All pets require a minimum of 10 days quarantine except those coming from Australia. Pets must be quarantined at a MPI approved facility. MPI is unable to offer exemptions from this requirement.

For all enquiries relating to the costs involved with quarantine and the conditions of quarantine (feeding, visitation rights etc) the operator of the facility should be contacted directly.

The following facilities are MPI approved to quarantine both cats and dogs
