Thank you.

Re: Move to UK with dog

There are many rules controlling importing dogs into the UK. By plane the dog may only enter at Heathrow, Gatwick and Edinburgh airports. You can forget a short time period, the rabies vaccination takes time to be fully effective, read the website thoroughly,

Not true, Manchester is an entry point too. Swiss only have routes to LHR and EDI though.

Actually Swiss do fly to MAN. But not to EDI.

Thanks!

I know the rules.

I need some agent can fly him as a cargo. Only in this case he can go to UK.

I managed to get useful information for your needs by following the really complicated process of:
1) Typing into google - Swiss pet cargo
2) Clicking on the Swiss.com link
3) On that page clicking on the SwissCargo link
4) On that page clicking on the "live animals" link
5) On that page clicking on the "Download Brochure for Switzerland"

You've done that already though haven't you - but didn't want to tell us

Contact them for a suitably high price.

I already contacted them, but swiss doesn't do this directly. I need an agent.

Are you flying with the dog?

It seems all rather last minute to be trying to find an agent. I am surprised that cargo.export.zurich@swiss.com didn't have contact details of suitable agents

Re: Move to UK with dog

Next Tuesday? Ouch. Can't you find someone who will drive to the UK with you, taking the Tunnel so you can all stay with the dog in the car- allowing plenty of time for the pre-check at the office just at the entrance- and making sure you dog is checked, wormed by the Vet (not you) and chip checked and the passport signed by the vet- no more than 48 hrs before crossing and no less than 24. It would be a lot cheaper and much less stressful for the dog, and all of you too.
