Name: Frank

Other than the international health certificate and rabies shot, is there anything else I need to consider about bringing a cat over?




Hi Frank,

Importing pets to the United States is usually pretty straightforward and it sounds like you're on the right track. In addition to the health certificate and rabies vaccination, we suggest choosing a pet-friendly airline and double-checking with them about any possible additional requirements, and also make sure your travel carrier is airline-approved.

Please let us know if you have any more questions, and good luck with your trip!
