Pet Travel Question: Dogs to Ecuador

Name: Johanna

Pet Breed: Toy Poodle/Shih Tzu Mix
From: Narita, Japan

Could you please advise me about whether or not I need an export permit to take my pet out of Japan (she was born here), and about how I go about importing her to Quito, Ecuador? Your time is much appreciated. Yours sincerely, Johanna.

Hi Johanna,

Thanks for the question! Start by taking a look at the Pet Import Requirements for Ecuador. Here at PetRelocation, we also encourage you to choose a pet-friendly airline and begin the crate-training process (if your dog isn't comfortable in a crate already) as soon as possible.

Please contact us if you'd like some help planning your move. One of our Pet Relocation Specialists would be happy to assist you or answer any questions you may have!

Good luck!
