Dear PetRelocation,

Do I need an import certificate for this move? Once I have this info then I can proceed to the vet for a full vaccination, including rabies jab. I am applying for the export travel certificate, too.




Hi Marcus,

To move your dog to the Dominican Republic you'll need a health certificate signed by your vet and proof of an up-to-date rabies vaccine. The rabies vaccine should be administered at least 30 days before your day of departure, and the health certificate should be issued not more than 15 days before departure. Here is more information about moving pets to the Dominican Republic.

We recommend taking the time to choose a pet friendly airline, and you'll also want to make sure your travel crate is airline approved. Here is more information about how to choose the right travel crate for your dog.

Please contact us if you have questions or if you'd like to find out more about our door-to-door services. Good luck with your trip!
