Dear PetRelocation,

Where do I start and who would be best to contact to organise my bird move? I need to know about forms etc. (basically I need to know everything I have to do).




Hi Anna,

Moving birds does require a bit of extra work, but we'd be happy to help! Here's a quick overview of the bird travel process for your information. Cockatiels are exempt from CITES regulations, which should cut back on the amount of paperwork you'll need to complete. 

Coming into the United States will also make this a little easier, but you'll still need to make sure you obtain the right travel crate and make arrangements with a bird friendly airline. Here's more info from our blog about how to relocate a bird safely

We'd be happy to discuss your options with you, Anna. Please fill out our quote form or give our office a call if you're interested in finding out more. Hope to hear from you soon!
