Pet Travel Question: Can I Bring More Than One Dog to the US?

Name: Apisama
Number of Pets: Two
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Yorkie
From: Thailand


Am I allowed to bring both of my small Yorkie dogs to the USA with me or am I only allowed to bring just one?

Thank you,



Hi Apisama,

Thanks for your question. You are allowed to bring both of your dogs with you to the United States. That being said, both your dogs might not be able to fly in the cabin of the plane, as many airlines allow only one in-cabin pet per passenger or have limits on how many total pets can fly in-cabin. It's best to contact your airline directly to ask about their pet air travel policies. Luckily, pets can travel safely and comfortably as cargo, so it shouldn't be a problem if they cannot both ride in-cabin.

While you're here, be sure to check out the pet import requirements for the United States. You'll notice that, because Thailand is a country affected by screwworm, your dogs will need health certificates declaring that they were inspected and found free of screwworm within five days of departure. This is in addition to the standard requirements of Rabies vaccine certifications and international health certificates.

If you have any more questions about pet transport, feel free to contact us. Thanks again for your question and good luck with your move!
