Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport

International airport in Taiwan

Travel Tips

Flying with Pets

Ensure your pet is quiet and in a nondescript carrier. Be prepared to pay a fee if caught. Airlines may accommodate late passengers, but risks include being denied boarding or paying extra. 1

Freeze a bowl of water for your pet, secure them before travel, and arrive at the airport early. Avoid feeding your pet a large meal before the flight. 2

Stay calm to help your cat relax. Prepare for security by having your cat on a leash and harness. If flying in cargo, confirm temperature and oxygen regulation with the flight crew. 3

Consider the 'look like you belong' method with pets in carriers that resemble regular luggage. Be prepared for security checks and potential gate fees if caught. 4

Airport Travel Preparation

Ensure you leave ample time for the drive to the airport and any last-minute souvenir shopping. 5

Ensure all documents are ready, including the health certificate and vaccination records. Check with the airline for any additional requirements. 6
