Pet Travel Question: Exporting Pets from France

Name: Celine
Number of Pets: Eight
Pet Type: Cats
Pet Breed: Siamese, Oriental, Balinese, Housecat
From: France


I would like to know if there is a maximum number of pets that can be imported to the USA?
Furthermore, you have mentioned that rabies shots are only mandatory for dogs, I did not see anything for cats so does it mean cats can travel to USA without rabies ?

Thanks a lot,
a worried cat owner

Hi Celine,

No need to worry! You can bring all of your cats into the US (the United States is actually one of the simpler places to deal with when it comes to importing pets -- here are the US pet import requirements). The cats will be inspected at the port of entry and you should be prepared to show a vet health certificate (and we recommend microchips and valid rabies certificates as well).

Good luck, and please let us know if you have any more questions.
