What shall I do if I buy a horse with a Horse Passport Agency passport?

The change in ownership is the new owners responsibility, which has to be report within 30 days of the purchase date. Change of ownership should be notified to the organisation that has issued the passport.

If the passport was issued by the Horse Passport Agency you can start the application and pay on-line. This will save you money and we will upgrade your application to a Fast Track. We aim to process your passport, once we receive it, within 3 working days and will post it back by 1st Class Recorded.

If you dont wish to do this on-line you need to request a change of ownership form. Once you have received and completed the form then post it, the passport and the fee to us at Horse Passport Agency, PO Box 74, Ellesmere, SY12 2AD. Allow 15 working days plus postage time for your application to be processed.

Remember to:

1. Weigh the passport.
2. Photocopy the front and back page and all vaccinations.
3. Send it by Recorded or Special Delivery.

Be aware that you may well be without the passport for up to 28 days. Please look at the fees section on the website for this years fees
