Pet entry into the Peoples Republic of China can be arduous, complicated, and confusing.
China permits only one pet per traveler. As of May 1, 2019, China allows dogs and cats from the U.S. to enter through any port of arrival in China without a 30-day quarantine when specific conditions are met.
To avoid delays and unexpected return to the U.S., we follow these steps in this order:
There is an option to enter through Hong Kong. If your pet travels through Hong Kong, the rabies antibody test is not required. A transit permit is needed to get to the mainland from Hong Kong.
Please register with a local veterinarian to keep your pet's rabies vaccination up to date. Veterinarians typically send reminder notices when vaccinations are due. If another move is in your future, you and your pet will be ready.
