Pet Travel From India to the United States

Hi PetRelocation,

My best friend is moving to Mountain View, California in December. We have an adopted rescued dog together, an Indian Pariah named Cotton -- she's two years old now, we got her at around 9 months of age.

We're hoping to be able to relocate Cotton along with my friend, but given the short window of time, are looking for options, to perhaps move Cotton to Mountain View after a few months.

Would really appreciate some help and advice on the complete process, what we should be doing at this point and how we can make sure that Cotton has an easy move between India and the US.

Looking forward to hearing from you,



Hi Nikita,

Thank you for your question, we'd be happy to help with some information. The good news is that the United States is one of the easier countries to which to move a pet. Please review the United States pet import requirements as you start to plan.

We'd also like to recommend looking over these pet travel tips for help with preparing for international pet travel. Among other things, it's important to start crate-training well in advance and to choose a pet friendly airline for Cotton's travel.

Hope this helps to get you started! If you're looking for assistance with your move and want to find out more about our door-to-door services, please fill out our online consultation form.

Thanks again, and good luck!
