CUSTOMS & QUARANTINE
Express Care Movers has the expertise to enable your pet to transport comfortably and in compliance with customs and quarantine laws
Your pet’s safety and comfort during travel is our top concern. And we are not alone.
The airlines, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the customs authorities, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the governments of other countries all want pets to be transferred safely from place to place – and all these bodies have rules, regulations and restrictions aimed at ensuring your pet’s safety.
With so many organizations regulating pet transportation, the paperwork involved can be daunting. Our Pet Relocation Specialists know the requirements and have experience in shipping pets worldwide. We are happy to help you identify the documents you need and the restrictions that may apply.
Hawaii and some international destinations including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong require pets to serve a period of quarantine detention after arrival. In many instances, Pet-Express can help you to either eliminate quarantine, or otherwise significantly reduce it. This is not only better for you and your pet, but will also save you considerable expenses in quarantine fees.
Other international destinations may not impose quarantine unless your pet has been incorrectly prepared, with preparations starting usually a month prior to travel.
We suggest that you obtain advice as soon as possible so that we can understand your pets current veterinary status, and determine what treatments are required ,and when they should be administered.
Importantly, we will also provide a comprehensive “compliance review” of all veterinary and travel documents so that your pet can enter the destination as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.
If you are travelling to Hawaii or internationally, please contact a Pet Relocation Specialist as soon as possible.
