Attention:  This information is to be used as general guidelines and may not be updated to meet the current requirements.  Before you travel, be sure to contact the appropriate authorities for your destination country.

Required Documentation

1. Health Certificate: Within 10 days of departure your vet will need to issue a Health Certificate as required by all airlines. This certificate states that your pet is in good health and OK to fly.

2. Rabies Tag(recommended): Most states require that dogs have a rabies tag stating they've been inoculated against the disease. Usually, your animal must have a rabies shot every three years. Again, check with your vet or the state regarding the regulations. Cats may need their rabies' shot, too - it's up to the state.
