Taking a Pet Passport Photo in store at Reload in London, not from the Paddington Station Photo Booth for your Dog’s Passport Photo, is now the best way forward. Not only will it be impossible for your Dog to sit still – the passport photo will sadly not meet the requirements that pet passport photos require.

After the end of the Brexit Transition Period, British pets will require an EU Pet Passport to travel to Northern Ireland. Come to Reload to have your pet’s passport photos taken. You can read more about this change here.

How do you get a Pet Passport? Pet Travel Scheme (PETS)

Your pet dog’s vaccinations need to be complete with documents proving this and the requirements for each country are different and the best way is to obtain a Pet Passport for Your Dog.

According to the Animal & Plant Health Agency Guide and the Scottish Government, EU travel scheme and how to complete pet passports (source: link)

The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) allows pet dogs, cats and ferrets to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet the conditions of the scheme. UK pet owners can also take their dogs, cats and ferrets abroad and bring them back into the UK without the need for quarantine, provided their pets meet the conditions of the scheme.

Requirements for a Dog or a pet to travel to an EU country are:
