Pet Travel Question: Importing Dogs to the United States

Name: Marshal

Could you please give me a list of all the requirements for moving two dogs from Australia to the USA?




Hi Marshal,

Thanks for your interest, we'd be happy to offer some guidance. You can find the full list of pet import rules for the United States here, but here's a quick overview of the general requirements:

1. International Health certificate issued within 10 days of departure.

2. Rabies vaccine and certificate (since Australia is rabies-free you might not need this).

Though a microchip is not required for entry into the United States, we do recommend them for your dogs.

Please contact us if you have any more questions or if you're interested in finding out more about our door-to-door services. Good luck, and we hope to hear from you!
