Moving pets to Shanghai- is there a restriction on the number of pets?

Considering moving my pets to Shanghai…Are there any restrictions on the number of pets?  We will have 4 passports and all documentation. Thanks, Mel.

Hi Mel,

Thanks for your inquiry regarding your three dogs’ relocation to Shanghai.  I have researched your question and have come to the conclusion that there currently is not a restriction on the number of pets allowed for import into Shanghai, as long as you have the correct documentation and a passport/visa for each pet entering the country.

I wish you and your dogs all the very best on your relocation to Shanghai!

Hi there, Whilst there may be no restriction on importing as they can make significant money for each individual, once here you are subject to police rulings, not customs and they say one dog per household. There are size restrictions in Jing'an District as well with regard to be able to getyour dog registered. If you would like to discuss more please email me on
