Having a pet in Qatar
Hello, everyone. I have found a kitten here 3 months ago and I took it home. So, when I will go back to Greece the kitten should travel at the luggage cabin as Qatar airways doesnâ€™t allow animals in the passengersâ€™ cabin. The problem is that my experience with Qatar airways concerning â€œluggage matersâ€? is not the best. They delayed the submission of my bags for one day and I have a friend who has totally lost his luggage. I think it is too extreme for them to lose a petâ€™s travel box with a cat in it but I am worrying. Does anyone know another company with which I can travel from here to Greece? I donâ€™t mind if I have to go through Dubai or Bahrain or Cyprus. Does anyone know what papers do I need in terms for my pet to travel with me? And finally does anyone know where I can find a vet?
Can anyone help me with an estimate for shipping cats to Doha? I am looking for a rough estimate of what it costs to ship your pet. If you do not want to write it in the public area please send a message to my inbox.
and that was years ago, I do'nt know about now.

If you are not sure how to handle it, leave it for the professional services. www.europuppy.com has been assisting customers from Qatar for several years now.
I think it wonderful that someone has taken on the task of asking the Ministry here in Doha to join the EU Pet Passport Scheme, I am 100% supportive of this action. I am motivated because I have recently moved to Doha and am considering sending for my two cats who reside currently in Houston. I have been concerned about the quality of care they would receive traveling from Houston to Doha(direct on Qatar Airways but a long haul). I'm getting mixed messages on care - since this is a relatively new route I wonder if there is any informtion gathered yet. Before I commit to their travel, I will also be micro-chipping each.
Anyone bringing a pet over should really get it done through a professional pet relocation company. I know for a fact that Qatar Pet Relocators import and export loads of animals every month and they've never had a problem with Qatar Airways before. It might be worth contacting them at www.qatarpetrelocators.com and asking them any questions you have!
thank you all for your interest, it helps me a lot!

Yes, please tell me about what happened with your boss's dog.... I will be bringing my boy out here soon and I want to make sure this doesn't happen with him.... imagine being away from mommy for months then flying for 8 hours and getting lost in transit.....
I would be furious with QA if this happened with my boy.....
it may sound stupid but i dont know what QAWS is. Thank you for the tip anyway, although now i feel very anxious. What happent to that poor dog of your boss?
Qatar Airways lost my bosses dog on a flight here. They left it in the luggage hold in Frankfurt for two days before anyone found it. Don't trust Qatar Airways with a pet. Contact QAWS and get the number for the qatar pet relocators, they will handle everything, and they don't trust Qatar Airways with pets.
