    for the last two years i have taken my parrot abroad (spain etc) costing over £100 each time for paperwork from the vet . no one has ever looked at the paperwork.Is it worth bothering?:BigGrin:

    Is it worth the risk? Sod's law could be the next time you will be asked for the paperwork.

    did not think you needed paper work to take a parrot to spain . have you looked on the defra web page . we had a chap on bonterra who takes his parrot all over the place without any paper work:Blush:

    If you do not do everything by the book you may well have the birds confiscated and you may well be prosecuted for trying to import birds without a licence.
