Hi, I want to know about traveling from Egypt to Trinidad. Which forms I need to travel with my two dogs? Is it better to go to Europe first? I am from Belgium, but it is not possible to stay there for six months before leaving for Trinidad. Maybe you can help me. Many Thanks, -Karin

Hi Karin,

Thanks for your pet travel question! Moving two dogs from Egypt to Trinidad and Tobago may be a little tricky, but we'd be happy to help you plan your move. Looking at the Pet Import Requirements for Trinidad and Tobago, you'll see that, coming from country like Egypt, your dogs will be subject to a 6 month quarantine. You'll need to apply for quarantine space well in advance, so it's best to start your travel planning soon. Arriving from another country may allow you to shorten or skip the quarantine, so review the list of regulations carefully as you explore all of your options.

For further information, please contact the office of the Chief Veterinary Officer in T&T:

    Telephone: 868 625-5997; 625-1473
    Fax: 868 625-5993

Finally, if you'd like some help planning your move, remember that you're welcome to contact one of our Pet Relocation Specialists. Good luck, Karin!
