Guide to Traveling with your pet

IN General

Your state / country you wish to travel to may have specific health requirements that must be met before your pet can enter that state / country.  For Domestic & International Travel, Importing or Exporting requirements are determined by each state / country and change often.  When you plan pet travel you will need to verify the specific requirements.

Check with your Airlines to determine what requirements they may have as well.

Start with Aphis to find your State / Country

Go to the APHIS PET TRAVEL site to learn all you need to know about what requirements you’ll need to meet when exporting your pet out of the state / country.   This is a great site to select your state / country and learn the specific requirements needed for traveling with your pet!
