Dear PetRelocation,

There are seven quarantine days established for pets coming from the United States. Is there any similar restriction for pets coming from Canada?


Mrs. Lopez


Dear Mrs. Lopez,

Thanks, that's a great question. Malaysia imposes a quarantine on all countries not classified as "Scheduled Countries," which include the UK, Northern Ireland, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore and Brunei. Canada is not on the list, so the import requirements will be very similar to those you reviewed for the United States (and will include the 7-day quarantine).

Here is some information from the Malaysia Department of Veterinary Services that should help you find your way.

Hope this helps! If you'd like some assistance with your move, you're welcome to contact us by filling out our free quote form. Moving a pet can be overwhelming at first, but it's important to know that there are lots of resources and experts out there who can help you move your dog safely.

Good luck, and we hope to hear from you!
