HEALTH - International Pet Travel Easier with new APHIS Website

Finding country-specific requirements for international pet travel just got easier.

Simply enter the foreign destination you are travelling to from the US - or the country you are travelling from into the US - on the Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) new website.

Pet travel requirements pop up, making preparation for your journey with your pet very simple.

“We know pets are members of the family, and our goal is to ensure pets meet the requirements to relocate with their families internationally—whether temporarily or permanently,” stated Dr. Jack Shere, deputy administrator for APHIS Veterinary Services, in an announcement about the new site.

Information can be found for dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, rabbits, rodents, hedgehogs and tenrecs, reptiles, and amphibians.
