Hi Maria,

Thanks for the pet travel question! For an idea of the basic rules, take a look at the Pet Import Requirements for India. Unfortunately this is one of the stricter countries for importing pets; current rules allow just two pets to be transported per human traveler, and birds are prohibited from entering the country.

Please contact the local authorities to find out more details, or contact one of our Pet Relocation Specialists to discuss your options.

Good luck with everything!
