Despite of what freaky conspiranoics say, we keep recommending everybody (when the turn arrives, not like the shaming example of certain Spanish politicians and high graduation “brave” soldiers), to get vaccinated against NCoV-19, and unless it’s absolutely necessary, don’t leave your home. We are facing a very serious situation, and we all should collaborate.
What’s new about Brexit: according to DEFRA website, the requirements for returning from an EU country to the UK remain the same: microchip, passport and a valid rabies injection (done 21 days before if it’s the first time or if the previous injection has expired), and in case of dogs, a tapeworm treatment between 24 hours and 5 days the moment you are expecting to cross. Fortunately, no rabies antibodies blood test is required for crossing the border. In the UK, both British and Spanish EU passport are still valid, but in EU territory British passports are no longer valid, so it becomes interesting to obtain a Spanish passport for your pet. This is a quick procedure that can be performed in every Vet surgery in a matter of minutes. The only problem is, according to Spanish Vet College, non-EU Vets are not allowed to sign vaccines in an EU passport, but I have my doubts about it.
