Pet Travel Question: Pet Transport to the United States

Name: Richard
Number of Pets: 2
Pet Type: Cats
From: Aberdeen, Scotland
To: Orlando, Florida

My wife and I are emigrating to Florida and are taking our two cats with us. We are going to arrive a week in advance and they will follow with my parents into Orlando International Airport flying with Lufthansa.

What all documentation must my parents have in order that the cats clear US customs?




Hi Richard,

Please review the import requirements for the United States to find out what your parents will need in the form of paperwork, etc. Compared to other countries, the United States actually puts forward a pretty simple set of rules, and you won't have to worry about a quarantine.

Lufthansa is a good choice, as they have established pet policies (we often use them for international pet moves), so it sounds like you're off to a great start so far. Please contact us if you have any more questions, however, and good luck with the move!
