Taking Pets to the USA
The United States has continuously been one of the topmost countries in the world for tourism and relocation. With many families deciding to move their lives completely to halfway across the world for better opportunities, there is no question of leaving their furry family members behind.
Just like their humans, pets also have stringent immigration standards that have to be met to enter the United States. As always, it’s important to ensure that your dog has all vaccinations required for your destination. Have an updated vaccination book along with a letter from the vet that your pet has been vaccinated, dewormed, and is fit for international travel.
Your pet needs to be crate trained and an IATA accredited crate is a must.
- Microchipping is a necessity; however, the rabies titer test is not a requirement for USA.
- Your dog can travel with you as excess baggage or as manifested cargo.
- An export permit or a ‘certificate of health’ from the Animal Quarantine & Certification Services is required before traveling.
- Valid Rabies and DHPPIL Vaccinations should be min. 30 days old should before entering into the USA
- All pets entering the United States that travel as manifested cargo must be claimed by someone with US legal resident status having a valid US address.
