#434917 - 12/15/07 09:07 PM Moving with gliders to EU, France

Hi everyone, this is my first real post here. My name is Arity, and I have two lovely babies that I've had for a little over a year; they'll be three in April.

I was wondering if anyone knew what the laws were regarding moving gliders from the States to either England or France. I'd like to either study abroad there or move in a couple years' time, but not if I can't take my gliders with me!

I've seen varying results as far as quarantine, etc., go, and the official EU statement regarding pets says nothing about marsupials: they list ferrets, rabbits, and rodents, though.

Additionally, though this isn't "official," per se, what is the consensus on actually moving the gliders? If I made sure to take a flight while they were sleeping, would that work out? Do international flights allow you to take them on the airplane? Do gliders get airsick?!

Thank you!

it would definitely better for you to take a flight that is during the day because they will be less stressed while they are sleeping..

As far as what you need to actually bring them over seas, i really can't help MUCH.. i found a website called and it has a section on exotic pets. There is a organization called CITIES and it says that if your pet is listed on that list, that you would need a permit. Sugar Gliders were listed on there, but when i searched for information for bringing them into france, i found nothing.. It's kind of a confusing website though..

I wish i was more help.. all i know is that when traveling in the states, there are NO airlines who will let you bring the gliders in cabin with you..

More than likely there will be a quarantine period. For some countries that is 30 days, but for some it is 6 months. That means your gliders will have to stay in quarantine with the government until the time period is up.

To add to Megan's comment, when/if you come back, they will have to go through quarantine again to enter the US. worried And they will not let you carry them on with you on the flight.
