    Other animals
    There are no restrictions on bringing pet rodents, rabbits, birds, invertebrates, amphibians and reptiles to the UK from other EU countries.
    Pet rabbits and rodents from countries outside the EU must spend 4 months in quarantine. They need a rabies import licence.
    Contact the Centre for International Trade (Carlisle) for more information on the rules for travelling with these or other species of pet.

    Non-native animals
    There are rules you must follow when importing animals that aren’t native to the UK.

    Having read the latest updates that when we hit Britex no doubt will all change again …. think I may swap my flock for newts!!! Some animals need to do quarantine some don't …. how unclear do they wish to make things???
