Hello. We live in UK, and are planning to retire to HuaHin in 2018. We've been told that we cannot bring our two dogs with us, however we have also been told they are not a banned breed, so we can. I've tried contacting the Thai Embassy for advice, but still await their reply. Can anybody confirm we can bring our English Bull Terriers with us?

I've reviewed the ruling. Turns out one must look like Churchill.
Good luck.

Hi,

we'd like to move to Thailand from London in October with our 9 years old English bull terrier. I contacted Pet Air Uk and they told me that English Bull terriers are banned in thai, even if on the website of Thai airways they say that American Bull terrier are banned and not english one. Did you speak with the Thai Embassy? Please if you have any news let me know, i will go ahead with other research but please let's keep in touch so we can share each other new update.

Airpets.com gave us a quote for transport of our two English Bull Terriers to Thailand including door to door service.
I got no joy from Thai Embassy in London or Hull, just transferred to different extensions internally - nobody seemed able to answer.
A Thai friend checked in Thailand and was told no breeds are banned in Thailand - the act was repealed in 2014. Keep in touch please! We are having our property in Thailand Dog-proofed in readiness for next year when we move there.

Hello mate, just st a quick update.
I contacted the Kennel Association of Thailand ( their version of our kennel club ) they inform me that you can import EBT's into Thailand, but may have to shop around for airlines as not all of them will transport EBT's.

Hi Bill,

i have been in touch with DLD, that is the department of livestock in Thailand, Veterinary office at BKK Airport and for 2 times they didn't answer to my questions but they sent me the form for import the dog and they ask me other docs as dog passport, microchip, .. and they attached this link ***** Can see in the website “Aqs-suvarn-dld.go.th/wp” *****

In this page there is another link , this one http://dcontrol.dld.go.th/index.php/pettop5.html

I translated this one where they don't say that these breed are banned but just the description of each breed.

I am really confuse, i have to be sure 100% that my dog can enter in the country otherwise i won't buy any ticket.

Then i have been in touch with United Pet express.com , first they said to me that Bull Terrier are banned then i said to them that EBL is a different breed and if they are banned all the mixed terrier breed should be banned too, like Jack russel terrier and yorkshire terrier or french bull dog that are mixed with pit bull.
So they said to me they will contact dld and they will let me know, but i am still waiting for an answer.

Now i'm going to contact an english vet that is based in Koh Pangan, hoping she will help me! i will share with you all the new update! Cheers!

Hi Toni,
Airpets will transport EBT's from UK to Thailand, as will as will Jets4Pets. Both will do the necessary at Bangkok airport, but you have to arrange your own movements of the dogs from the airport to your Thai address. They recommend as a firm that will do this for you.
Let me know how you get on please?

Hi there,
we are finally on koh Phangan Island!

So we started 3 months ago with all the vaccines for Rosco, we contacted DEFRA that sent to us some papers where you have to write who is your vet (it must be an Official Veterinary) and the exact day of the flight ( on the paper they want to see an exact date but then if you decide to change the date of travelling you can call them and just tell them that you have changed the date) and then sent all the papers back to them,
10 days before you are leaving they will send to your OV the original paper, your OV will do a check before you travel and it must be done at least 72hrs before your flight.
In the meantime we contacted the quarantine office at Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok , this is their email they will send you some documents to fill up, asking you the passport of the dog, microchip, vaccinations, picture, day of arrival , and your passport, after few days they will sent you back the official papers by email, and with them you can get in the country, also in the emial there will be an username and password that you have to show to the vet in the airport in bangkok with all the other documents made by your OV in England (the original one)
/// Make variuos copy of each document, they will be never enought///
Be sure on which day you will travel because the documents made by the quarantine office in Bangkok will expire after 60 days!

We decided to travel with Thai Airways and bring rosco with us as excess baggage on our same flight, we bought a kennel (must be IATA approved) and we contact Thai asking them that we decide to travel with Rosco on the 15 of November and asking them if there was space on the cargo to bring him with us, after 2 days they contacted us back saying was all confirmed and there was space for the dog on our same flight.
we spoke with different air cargo agency, they always asked us about 2000 pounds and the dog should to travel with an air cargo so not with us on our same flight, some of them said us that EBT were not allowed in Thailand.
With Thai Airways we spent 570 pounds, paid in the airport before to travel, Rosco is 24 kg and the kennel is 8 kg, for a total of 32kg. If your dog plus the kennnel is more than 40 kg, he must travel by air cargo and you need to contact an air cargo agency. If your dog is less then 40 kg i suggest you to bring him with you on your same flight, first of all, everyone that works with thai airways have been really kind and helped us with everything, they allow you to stay with your dog till the last minute. when we got on the plane they said us that the dog was on the cargo section and that they gave him some water. The cargo section is totally dark but is with controlled temperature.
Second, the Thai airways ticket was cheaper than a ticket with pet air cargo or others.
After 10 hrs of flight we arrived in Bangkok and after the visa check , you need to go at the quarantine office that is in front the claim baggage n.8, after 10 minutes Rosco arrived , he was alright and happy to see us, he did the check, everything was good, we paid about 500 bth to the Thai Vet, then when you get out you have to declare the dog, showing them all the paper made by the thai vet at the quarantine station and pay again 1000 bht.
Then you are free to go, you can take a big taxi that will charge you more for the dog, we paid 600bht till the hotel.

We have been in a really nice and clean hotel in BKK, that is not in the center town but is a nice place where to stay with the dog, and they charged us only 500bht for Rosco, it's called Studio Residence Sukhumvit 71 .

We paid just for Rosco about 1000 pounds for his flight ticket, vaccines in london, cage, etc...

Hope all this tips will help you bringing your EBT with you, All the thai people loves Rosco and nobody is scared by him, It's strange but there were more persons sacred of Rosco in London then here!
