APHIS Pet Travel site

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has launched a new website dedicated to international pet travel to help travelers and accredited veterinarians determine country-specific requirements. APHIS’s previous site was designed for veterinarians and other animal health professionals who were familiar with technical regulatory language. Because of this, hundreds of callers a month called APHIS seeking info on pet travel. The new site is designed to be easy for anyone to use. It provides information about taking pets from the United States to other countries and bringing pets into the United States. It applies to the following pets: dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, rabbits, rodents, hedgehogs and tenrecs, reptiles, and amphibians. It also includes country-specific health certificates and instructions for completing them. For fastest response visit aphis.usda.gov/aphis/pet-travel
