Pet Travel Question: Cat Travel to Indonesia
Number of Pets: 2
Pet Type: Cats
Pet Breed: Siamese
From: Hawaii, USA
I am interested in teaching in Indonesia beginning this fall, before I secure a job I would like to inquire about the process for bringing my cats along. I have two female cats, both Siamese breed.
What would be the procedure for moving them with me and how many months in advance would I need to begin this procedure? My cats already have microchips and have had their most recent rabies vaccinations in January 2013; they will also be coming from Hawaii, which is a rabies free state. The had their FAVN test done in October of 2011 before moving to Hawaii. I would like to know the costs I should expect for moving them as well. Will quarantine be required? Thank you for the information.

For a look at what it's like to move a pet to Indonesia, take a look at this story about Izzy, a dog we moved to Jakarta.
