It is essential to ensure that your pet is eligible to travel, not only to or from Spain, but also any other countries it may pass through.
The animal will have to travel in an approved container. It must be big enough for the animal to stand, sit and turn during the journey. The container must allow adequate ventilation.
If the journey is longer than a few hours, food and drink may need to be supplied.
Several train companies, sea ferries and airlines carry caged animals across borders (normally a pet travelling by air will be in the hold). Consult the carrier for details.
Animals must be transported via approved routes. Euro Tunnel is pet friendly allowing pets to travel in the car.
Guide dogs for the blind entering Spain must adhere to the same requirements as other domestic pets above.
Once in Spain the service dog has free access to all public buildings and may travel unrestricted on all public transport. The dog should be registered and licensed with the Spanish National Organization of the Blind (Organización Nacional de Ciegos de España, ONCE).
The UK based Guide Dogs for the Blind association has a set of guidelines for those travelling with the assistance of guide dogs.
