It’s True: Barbados Has New (Easier) Pet Import Rules
Number of Pets: 2
Pet Type: Dogs
Pet Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback
From: South Africa
I recently read somewhere that from 1st January 2015, Barbados will accept pets from most countries so long as they have conformed with the necessary tests and protocol.
Could you confirm if this is correct or do we still have to go via the UK?
Many thanks in advance,
Thanks for your question! We're happy to report that yes, Barbados has relaxed its pet import rules and there is no longer a need to route through the United Kingdom (provided you meet the necessary requirements).
We recently discussed the new Barbados pet import rules on our blog and would be happy to answer any further questions you have. Additionally, here is a video from the Barbados Ministry of Agriculture that goes over the process:
