Pet Travel Question: Moving Two Dogs to Taiwan

What is the best way of moving my two 60 lb dogs to Taiwan from the USA? I understand there is a 21 day quarantine period; is there any way to shorten the amount of time?



Hi Jian,

Thank you for your question. These are the import requirements for going to Taiwan. You're right, there is a quarantine requirement for Taiwan, and we can offer this additional advice:

-Be sure there are no mistakes on the health certificates (no cross-outs, for example). If there is a mistake you must re-do the page.

-There is often a wait list for the quarantine, and you need to apply for the import permit at least 30 days prior to import.

-There is a specific wording requirement on the vaccine certificates (the rabies certificate must say "booster" or "primary" and "killed" or "inactive" for example).

Finally, here's an additional resource about moving pets to Taiwan. Please let us know if you have any questions, and good luck!
