Eurocrats have rejected Britain’s latest bid to recognize UK pet passports, meaning holidaymakers will still face Brexit red tape when they travel to the bloc.

Leaked minutes of negotiations last month show that Brussels will not allow British pets to travel to the EU without a veterinary certificate.

They can cost up to £180 and are only valid for four months, so regular travelers will have to cough up more than once.

According to a Daily Mail memo from a meeting last month, EU officials have turned down a request from UK negotiators for the EU to recognize its pet passports.

Brussels said such recognition “is only available to non-EU countries that are dynamically aligned with the EU’s animal health regime or are working towards such a dynamic alignment”.

UK officials said UK animal health regulations already meet the bloc’s standards as they have not changed since Brexit. An exception has already been made for guide dogs for the blind.
