We are moving permanently from Beirut, Lebanon to Columbia, MO and we need to take our dog with us. I need to know if it is feasible and how much it will cost us.
Thank you for your question, we'd be happy to help! First you'll want to take a look at the pet import requirements for the United States
. This is one of the easier countries to bring pets—essentially you just need proof of an updated rabies vaccine and an international health certificate.
For general pet travel advice, please take a look at these frequently asked pet travel questions
for information about choosing the right pet travel crate, booking a pet friendly flight, and more. (We typically use KLM, Lufthansa, British Airways and United for our pet clients' flights.) It's generally a good idea to allow a month of planning time for an international move, and the costs will depend on several factors, including air freight and any necessary vet visits.
Hopefully this helps, good luck!
