Hi, I am traveling to Ghana this Christmas, and wanted to take my dog with me for about a month and half. What are the steps I need to follow so I can take my pet through immigration safely without any problems? I know I need health forms and veterinary clearance. Please help me. -Micheal

Hi Micheal,

Thanks for the question. To get ready for your upcoming trip to Africa, you'll need to follow the guidelines outlined under the Pet Import Requirements for Ghana. The basic steps will include obtaining a microchip, rabies vaccination, an international health certificate and an import permit.

Feel free to give us a call if you have more questions or if you're interested in finding out more about our door-to-door relocation services. Pet travel can be complicated, and one of our Pet Relocation specialists would be happy to speak with you in greater detail about your trip.

Good luck with everything!
