Pet Travel Question: Military Dog Move

Name: Samuel
From: Dubai
To: Orlando, Florida
Pet: Mixed Breed 7 Months old, 20 lbs.

Question: I adopted this pet while stationed in Afghanistan and I want to take her to the United States. I want to know what documentation and medical tests will I need to travel (in transit) through the Dubai airport. I am traveling on United Airlines and I want to take her as baggage. Can you please assist me in this matter? Thanks. She is a great dog.

Hi Samuel,

Congrats on connecting with a great dog! Here are the pet import requirements for the US that you'll need to be aware of. This is actually one of the easier countries to enter -- primarily you'll need to focus on the rabies vaccination and health certificate. We also recommend choosing a pet-friendly airline with established pet policies in place.

Contact us if you have any more questions, and good luck with the move!
