Pet Travel Question: Navigating Korea’s Pet Import Requirements

Name: Larissa
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Havanese
From: USA
To: South Korea

I know that the regulations for bringing a pet to Korea will be changing starting December 2012,
however I am not understanding if now the quarantine is permanent? I am very scared and stressed because my husband just got orders for Camp Casey and I want to bring our dog with us but I don't want her to go through quarantine.




Hi Larissa,

Thanks for the questions -- your concerns are definitely understandable, as pet travel can be very confusing! Here's a rundown of the new pet import rules for South Korea. You'll need to plan carefully because pets now need a rabies titer test (this makes the preparation process a bit longer but doesn't mean  your dog will have to be confined in a quarantine facility). Here's a link to the official site for more information, as well.

Please contact us if you have any more questions, Larissa. We'd be happy to help and can offer you a free quote if you're interested in finding out more about our services. Good luck with your travels!
