International Travel with Pets

If you plan to travel internationally with your pet, be aware that there may be special health certificates and vaccination requirements for the country you plan to visit.

In some cases, it can take several months and multiple visits to complete this process. Information on requirements for specific destination countries can be found on the USDA website. Find more tips and information on traveling with your pet at
