Pet Travel Question: Moving Dogs to India

Name: Joseph
Number of Pets: 2
Pet Type: Dogs
Pet Breed: Chihuahuas
From: St. Petersburg, FL
To: Belgaum, India

I truly hope someone can help me find the answer to my problem. I live in St. Petersburg, FL and I will be traveling to India for a several month stay. I have two Chihuahuas and can't imagine going without them in addition finding someone to watch them for that period of time. I have read several posts that say it is possible but they are from years ago.

Is this possible, and who can I call to make sure I have everything that is needed?




Hi Joseph,

Thanks for the question. Yes, it's possible to move dogs from the United States to India by following these import procedures for India. You'll need to to arrange paperwork and at least one vet visit, and your dogs will need microchips if they don't have them already.
