Exporting of Greyhounds
Under GA rules any person exporting a greyhound(s) to another country (excluding New Zealand) must prior to meeting the requirements of the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) obtain a Greyhound Passport.
Specifically GAR 44 (1) states that,
(1) Any person bound by these Rules or those of a relevant Registration Controlling Body who is intending to export a greyhound from Australia or New Zealand to any other country must:
(a) first, obtain a greyhound passport and certified pedigree issued by Greyhounds Australasia; and
(b) having obtained a greyhound passport, meet the quarantine and inspection service requirements of the country the greyhound is to travel to.
All exporters must apply for the Greyhound Passport directly with GA. This application will be assessed in line with the GA Board approved December 2018 policy which states:
Where the intended destination for the export of a greyhound is an unregulated country or jurisdiction (including where Greyhounds Australasia has no formal association with a recognised central regulatory authority), a Greyhounds Australasia Passport will not be granted
A Greyhound Passport will only be issued upon receipt of a completed application form. The said application form will also contain a mandatory compliance clause specifying the purpose for export which is for racing, breeding or as a pet.
