I am traveling from Bahrain to Canada with my dog and need to get an International Health Certificate. Where to I obtain this, and do I need an export permit for my dog to leave Bahrain? Any information you can provide would be most helpful. Thank you, - Norah

Hi Norah,

Thanks for contacting us with your question! First of all, here are the pet import requirements for Canada. You will need a few different import documents, and you'll also want to contact the airline you'll be flying with to see if they have additional regulations or suggestions. We recommend choosing a pet-friendly airline that makes an effort to ensure the safety of your dog.

Explore our site for more information about obtaining the correct paperwork, including the APHIS Vet Health Certificate, and please contact us if you have any more questions. One of our Pet Relocation Specialists would be happy to speak with you or help you plan your move.

Good luck with everything!
