Moving to a new country where you don’t have a support network is challenging for any number of reasons.

VIDEO: What do expats do with their pets when they travel?

Perhaps hardest of all is finding someone to look after your beloved pet when you go away.

Depending where you are travelling from, entry to France can now require a vaccination certificate, negative Covid test, health declaration and proof of the essential nature of your journey.

Meanwhile for arrivals from the UK, post-Brexit rules are in place for everything from passports to pets, visas to sandwiches.
