    Default UK laws


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Greetings community,
    I already used the search-function and Dr. google, but I could not find any clear and certain answer so I am asking you:
    Since I am thinking about moving to England (London) I was wondering how the laws about keeping geckos are. Are there any special circumstances I have to know about?
    What about the customs?
    Thanks guys

    Hey, almost all geckos are legal. Transporting them through the normal mail system (royal mail) is illegal, transporting any livestock is. However, you can transport by courier. I assume you mean customs as in security at airports? If so again I think you should be fine as long as you declare it beforehand, you may however need special papers for transportation into the country you will need to look into it
    I've lived in the UK all my life and some of my family are in law so if you have any more questions about geckos in the UK or just UK in general don't hesitate to ask

    Thank you for your input.
    Well it sounds great that most are legal. I think the geckos I keep won't be a problem then.
    I will look into the papers and if it comes to a movement to the UK I will probably ask another question.
    One thing I'd like to know thou: Is it required to register the kept geckos at the community?

    You mean like the council? If so then no you don't. If you have a landlord or you're renting I suggest reading the small print and speaking to them about it. If you're buying the flat/house or your landlord agrees to it then I don't think you should have any problems
