What are the documents and vaccinations needed for this move? Is there a quarantine or an age minimum I need to be aware of? Thanks, -Ramsey

Hi Ramsey,

Thanks for checking in with us! First, take a look at the Pet Import Requirements for South Africa to find out what you'll need to do to prepare. Dogs should be old enough to receive a rabies vaccine, and as long as all basic requirements are met and your vet is USDA-accredited, coming from the US you should not be subjected to a quarantine.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any more questions or if you'd like some help with your move. Good luck, Ramsey!
