Pet Travel Question: Moving a Dog from India to the US

Hello,

I have a list of documents required for my dog's move from India to the United States. I have a kennel club registered dog. Does my dog need to be neutered? What if I do not wish to neuter? We have all the records of his rabies vaccination and other vaccinations and can obtain the required certificates from his vet. What are the quarantine laws in the United States?

Thank you,

Neha

 

Hi Neha,

Thanks for your questions. Pet transport to the United States is relatively simple, and you can see the United States pet import requirements here. You'll notice that there are no regulations regarding neutering your pet, and your dog will be allowed in the United States even if he is not neutered.

It's great that you have your dog's certificates in order, just be sure that your International Health Certificate is issued within 10 days of your departure. Additionally, because India is listed as a country affected by screwworm, your dog will need to be inspected within 5 days of departure and declared free of screwworm on his health certificate.

The United States (with the exception of Hawaii) does not require a quarantine, so as long as your dog arrives in good health with all the necessary documentation, he will not need to be quarantined.

For a few additional tips, we recommend taking a look at these common pet travel questions as well as these travel kennel training tips for dogs. Hopefully this helps to make your journey a little easier. 

Thanks again for your questions, and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any more or if you think you'd like some help arranging your dog's travel. Good luck with your move to the United States!
