For all other itineraries, falcons, cats, dogs and pet birds can be transported as checked baggage in the hold, provided the total journey time (including any transit time) is less than 17 hours, and all appropriate conditions are met. Please contact your local Emirates office well in advance of travel for more information. Animals, which can be accepted as baggage as per the rules above, but with a total journey time exceeding 17 hours must also be carried as cargo.

The minimum connecting time for animals transiting Dubai and carried as baggage may be no more than 6 hours; if the minimum connecting time is more than six hours animals will be accepted for transportation as cargo only.
