I've read the notes on your website regarding importing cats into Australia, (i.e. 180 days of 190 may be spent in country of origin) however, I would like confirm that this applies to pets (cats) whose country of origin is USA.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Yes, that's correct. Much of the information you'll find on our site is geared towards pets being exported from the United States, and this is the case for the pet import requirements for Australia you see listed.
If everything is carried out properly (the rabies shots, etc.), your cat will remain in your care prior to traveling to Australia and will just need to be in quarantine for 10 days upon arrival in Australia. If you haven't visited the official Australia government pet import site we recommend that you do so -- there is a helpful drop-down tool that will help you plan your schedule.
Please review this information and let us know if we can be of further help. Thanks for checking in, and good luck with your upcoming move!
