UK Nationals With Pets No Longer Permitted to Obtain French Pet Passports

French pet passports, which are cheaper and practical, will no longer be issued to British animal owners, but rather additional requirements will apply to them, the government has announced.

According to the French Agriculture Ministry, pets that previously had an EU pet passport issued in the United Kingdom must have been registered by the owner with French pet register Identification, the des Carnivores Domestiques (I-CAD). Such registration can be completed after checking the pet at a French vet, provided the animal has a French ID card from the service, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

“The veterinarian can only issue a French passport to an animal holding a UK/EU passport issued before January 1, 2021, after checking whether the animal’s identification number has been recorded in the national file. Identification of domestic carnivores (I-CAD) and that an identification card has been issued,” a notice published by I-CAD reads.

An official from I-CAD also told The Connexion that the new rule applies to new French pet passports of British owners’ animals, who didn’t have an animal pet passport before. In either case, he added that an animal could be registered with I-CAD if the owner proves that they and their animal will be staying in France longer than three months, which is also the maximum time frame for British visitors without a visa.

Since the UK left the EU in 2020, Britons have been introduced to several restrictions, including applying for visas, when they want to stay in the bloc longer than 90 days within 180 days. Such changes have highly affected several industries, including tourism and travelling.

Education has been quite affected as well, as according to the Universities and Colleges Admission Service (UCAS), 50 per cent fewer EU students applied to British universities in 2020/2021, accounting for 16,025 enrolled students out of 31,670 that applied.

However, experiencing such hassles isn’t common only for Britons reaching the EU but also for Europeans headed towards the UK. Recently, the Hungarian students enrolled in British universities revealed that the tuition fees have increased by 170 per cent, surging from £9250 (€11,095) to about £25,000 to £40,000 (€ 29,990-47,985).

“There has been a dramatic fall in the number of students studying in the UK. While in the year 2020-2021, around 705 students were accepted out of around 1,100 applicants, in the 2021-2022 academic year, only 450 students applied out of which 190 have been accepted, but eventually only 60 began their studies,” Soma Pirityi, co-director of the Hungarian Youth Association said regarding the matter.

In addition, traveling to the EU for UK nationals now includes carrying a passport, having a sticker on the back of their vehicle while driving to the EU, and specific entry rules that apply to all third-country nationals.
