Pets who are imported into the Falkland Islands must be approved in advance by the Veterinary Department. They must also meet United Kingdom importation guidelines.
Importing pets into the U.K. is strictly regulated by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). On the first day of 2012, the UK brought its pet import procedures in line with the EU, effecting several changes. One of these is the quarantine regulation that has been lifted in most cases, provided paperwork and vaccinations are in order.
