Pet Travel Question: Moving Pets to the United States

Name: Michele
Number of Pets: 3
Pet Type: Two dogs, one cat
Pet Breed: Huntaway,  Jack Russell/Foxy Cross, Very Cool Cat
From: Rotorua, New Zealand
To: Portland, Oregon

I know it's like pulling hen's teeth to bring pets over here, but what is it like to bring them to the states? I'm hoping there are considerably less hoops to jump through.



Hi Michele,

Good news, it is much easier to bring pets to the United States than New Zealand. Here are the pet import requirements for the US. Please take a look and then let us know if you have any questions.

Remember, we also recommend flying with a pet-friendly airline and spending time before your move to make sure your pets are comfortable with their travel crates. Thanks for the question, and good luck with everything!
