Pet Travel Question: Parakeets to Canada

Name: Christine
Number of Pets: 2
Pet Type: Bird
Pet Breed: Parakeet
From: U.S.
To: Canada


I am relocating from the U.S. (Minnesota) to Canada and am planning to take my pets with me. I have two parakeets and will be taking them as carry-on for my flight. Could you give me any information on what documents I might need to provide when taking my pets to Canada? I want to make sure that I have everything prepared so that the trip goes smoothly for my pets.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Christine!

Here are the pet relocation requirements for Canada, as well as a guide for importing exotic pets. Birds require checking with CITES and obtaining approved travel carriers, etc. (You're also welcome to check out our blog, where we've discussed various bird travel issues.)

Good luck, and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any more questions!
