Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Akita
To: Fort Lauderdale
We want to move our dog from the Island of Barbados to the United States -- Fort Lauderdale or Miami. Can you please advise us of the steps required?
Thanks for your question! To start, we'd suggest taking a look at these pet travel basics in order to acquaint yourself with the general process. It's also important to understand the pet import requirements for the United States.
The United States is one of the more clear and easy countries when it comes to importing pets; you'll need to have proof of an updated rabies vaccine and a health certificate showing the airline your dog is healthy and fit to fly. As you'll see when you follow the links above, we also recommend choosing a pet-friendly airline and making sure you're in line with whatever regulations/procedures that carrier has in place.
If you're interested in hiring some assistance with your move, please fill out our online consultation form to find out more about our services.
Thanks for contacting us, and good luck with everything!
