Hey guys,
sorry if i'm repeating other posts but there is so many threats... some outdated.. some with so many pages and it takes forever to find something.

i'm planning my relocation with my labrador for setp 2012 and was told that local (indian) import charges would be around EUR1000. i find this ridiculous since it would cost me the same to hire an agent in Belgium to export my Lilly from EU and ship accross the world so how can local charges be the same if not more as air freight across the world?

Would anyone who had shipped his/her dog to india please let me know your experience? I would prefer to arrange everything on my own as so far the agents both here and local would cost me up to 2500 and from what i've read so far it seems it's not as difficult provided i have all paperwork in order.

Any suggestions, recommendations, etc. would be much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance

This link looks like it has all the information you would need.

Just one piece of info about 1/2 down that link which looks important which you can find out about from your UK vet:

All bookings of Cats and Dogs into India must be accompanied by a Veterinary Certificate (Health) as per the format prescribed by the Government of India.
