Move Your Pet USA

Leave the details to us!

Criteria for dogs with U.S.-issued rabies vaccination certificates:

  1. Was your pet vaccinated for rabies in the U.S.?
  2. Is that vaccination still valid?
  3. Do you have the valid rabies vaccination certificate (RSV)?

If #1-3 are true you may enter the U.S. with your dog through one of 18 entry ports without an import permit. If you wish to engage Air Animal for your pet move, please complete our online request form. This helps us better understand your pet move needs. Use the comments box to add detail if needed.

Criteria for dogs from high risk rabies countries:

To enter the U.S. with a pet from another country, you must first personally apply for an import permit from the U.S. CDC.

If you receive an import permit we recommend hiring a professional pet mover in your origin country. The best resource to find an experienced pet mover in your origin country is the International Pet and Animal Transportation Association.

For pets entering the USA:

Experienced UK and European Union nationals have grown familiar with the UK DEFRA and EU pet travel scheme and easily visit the USA for sunny weather holidays with their pet dogs or cats. The UK and EU are not on the CDC list.

After you move:

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.
