EXPORT HORSE TRANSPORT CERTIFICATION
Export Horse Transport Certification
EXPORT CERTIFICATION WITHIN THE EU
The costs involved are generally lower than when an owner has this inspection done per horse at his home address. Because we have all the horses that are to be transported on Tuesday inspected at the same time at Gelissen Paardentransport, we can carry the certification out for a modest cost.
EXPORT CERTIFICATION FOR OUTSIDE THE EU
We’ll send the samples to a certified laboratory and once the results are known, a vet from the WVA will draw up the export certificate at Gelissen Paardentransport.
|When horses are transported from another EU country to the Netherlands, you can usually have the necessary export certificate drawn up by the Ministry of Agriculture in the country concerned.
The United Kingdom is an exception to this. When horses are transported from the United Kingdom to another country in the EU you have to ask for a health certificate and an export licence in the United Kingdom. This health certificate has to be issued by DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) in the United Kingdom. A local licensed vet will stamp this within 24 hours prior to departure.
The export license can be requested from DEFRA in advance. In principle the application has to be sent in 7 days prior to departure, however the document is then valid for one month.
Gelissen Paardentransport can also apply for the import certification on your behalf for a modest fee.
