Pet Travel Question: Pet Import Rules for the Netherlands and the United States

Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: 15 - 35 lbs.
From: USA / Netherlands
To: Netherlands / USA

My wife and I live in the Netherlands eight months to a year in our apartment near The Hague and we also live four months a year at our house near Miami, Florida. We would like to get a dog (we have both owned many dogs in the past before we were married). We would like to know the rules and requirements for entry into both countries and what services you can provide us and at what cost. Thanks so very much.




Hi Richard,

Thanks for your question, we'd be happy to provide some information. First, here are the pet import requirements for the Netherlands and here are the pet import requirements for the United States.

Generally it'll be a little bit easier to bring a dog into the United States than into the Netherlands, and as far as costs go those will depend on a few different factors (for a quote from us you can fill out our free form).

Please contact us if you have any more questions about relocating your future puppy. Good luck and we look forward to hearing from you!
