An Australian couple has decided to charter a private jet for USD $32,377 (IDR 463 million)to transport their Bali dog to Queensland, Australia before the Christmas celebration.
An Australian couple, identified as David Daynes and Tash Corbin, decided to transport their dog named Munchkin, who they previously adopted during their stay in Bali a few years ago, with a private jet.
After years of struggling to transport Munchkin to his new home in Australia, his owners’ efforts to welcome their new family member are about to pay off.
When the couple planned to bring Munchkin to Australia a few years ago, the couple was told that the process might take 6 to 8 weeks and cost around USD $7,132 (IDR 102 million). But the process had taken much longer than expected, as it took six years and cost a lot more than predicted.
“I stopped counting our expenses when they had reached USD $28,671 (IDR 410 million) 3 years ago. But money don’t matter to me, as long as I could bring him home before Christmas,” Corbin said. Both Daynes and Munchkin are currently in New Zealand as they wait for Australian authorities to grant the pet access into the country.
The couple had been struggling to bring Munchkin to Australia due to strict regulations from the Australian government. He had to pass several health checks during the quarantine.
“Munchkin is part of our family now, and I won’t change a thing. I love him and he’s a wonderful little dog,” Corbin concluded.
