Gorgeous Tilly is off to join her owners at their new home in Christchurch, New Zealand.

She’ll be flying out of the UK. Until last month Tilly and her family were living in France. To meet New Zealand’s entry requirement to be resident in the country of departure for six months before travel, her family thought Tilly would have to stay with family members in Devon until the end of the year.

Fortunately, however, New Zealand has recently changed its policy. Special permission to enter can now be granted if the countries of residence and departure are in the same category, which is the case with France and the UK.

So Tilly can now fly to Christchurch with Air New Zealand to rejoin her family much sooner than they had expected. She’ll just have to spend 10 days in quarantine on arrival before being free to explore the wonderful sandy beaches near her new home.
