Pet Travel Question: Importing a dog to South Korea

My husband and I are relocating; can you give me some direction on taking my little dog to South Korea? I am flying American Airlines and I can't carry her on, but they say they have a controlled temperature pet cabin in the cargo, however I feel uncomfortable with this.

Can you advise me or tell me how much it would cost to do this with you and also tell me about the time frame of her travel and the procedures you follow to care for her?


Hello Cecelia,

Thanks for the question! It sounds like your best bet is to contact us for a free quote; with a few more details one of our Pet Relocation Specialists will be able to outline the move for you and offer you a price estimate.

To get yourself started, however, take a look at the pet import requirements for South Korea and find more information about pets traveling in the cargo area of the plane. Most people feel nervous about the prospect of sitting in the cabin while their pets fly cargo, but in fact pets fly safely this way all the time. 

We look forward to speaking more with you about your move. Good luck with everything!
