Emigrate to Cyprus with dog or cat

Like many others, we emigrated to Cyprus with our two cats. Here you will learn how to best prepare the whole thing!

Choose the right airline and transport box

If you want to emigrate to Cyprus with your dog or cat, you will encounter some challenges: only a few airlines take animals in the cargo hold or cabin to Cyprus, and there are also requirements for the right transport boxes. On this page we would like to show you how to emigrate stress-free and correctly with your four-legged friends to Cyprus!

In our large online portal we have published all the forms you need to emigrate with animals to Cyprus. We show you which airlines carry animals from Germany and tell you about our personal experiences.

Airlines that take animals in the hold to Cyprus

    Lufthansa takes animals in the cargo hold for €200 each way. You must first book the flight online and then book the animal by phone. Within 24 or 48 hours after booking you may cancel any booking free of charge, so you should call directly after booking. 

    TUI takes animals in the cargo hold for only 60 euros per route. Here, too, you book the flight online and then have to add the animal afterwards by phone. Attention. We had booked this year and a few seconds before all passengers boarded, we were told at the gate that the aircraft type was changed and the new aircraft has no oxygen in the cargo hold. As a result, we were banned from flying and had to leave the airport. 

    Compensation payments and reimbursement for the 1380 euros are still pending. 

    Condor takes animals in the hold for EUR 109.99. Condor says it will fly from Larnaca to Düsseldorf from October. 
    Transavia takes animals in the cargo hold from €70 per flight. 
Emigration cats Cyprus

Soft bag for cats in the cargo hold

In this transport bag we took our cat in the cabin of our Lufthansa flight. The set consists of a carrying strap, an insert and a drink bowl. Even though the product size was slightly larger than allowed by Lufthansa, the bag was accepted without any problems because it fit under the front seat.

Emigration dog Cyprus

XXL dog transport box for airplane

Unlike taking small animals in the cabin, larger dogs must be transported to Cyprus in a hard-sided transport box in the cargo hold of the plane. For our Golden Retriever we used this transport box, and weeks before gave our dog food in this box and transported him in the car to get him used to it.
