Pet Travel Question: Importing Dogs and Cats to Canada

Name: Shereen
Number of Pets: 3
Pet Type: 2 dogs and 1 cat
Pet Breed: Dachshunds, Siamese
From: Johannesburg, South Africa
To: Toronto, Canada


We would like to know what the requirements are to take our pets with us to Toronto, as my husband is being transferred by his company. We need to know the costs involved, the period of quarantine, how they will be transported etc.

Warm regards,


Hello Shereen,

Thank you for contacting us, we hope we can help! These are the pet import requirements for Canada. There will not be a quarantine if you follow these rules.

When traveling internationally it's especially important to choose a pet-friendly airline with established pet safety policies in place. Take a look at our site for more info about travel crates, also, and if you'd like a quote for our door-to-door services, you can fill out our free form and a Pet Relocation Specialist will get back to you with more information.

Please contact us if you have more questions, and good luck with everything!
