Pet Travel Question: Rabies Vaccines & Shipping Pets to the United States

Name: Robert
Number of Pets: One
Pet Type: Cat
Pet Breed: Persian
From: France
To: Florida, USA

My cat has a current (four months old) rabies vaccination as recorded on his passport by our French vet. Does he have to be revaccinated for a 30 day requirement for entry into Florida?

Thanks in advance for your response.



Hi Robert,

Thanks for the question. These are the pet import requirements for the United States. In terms of rabies, it sounds like you're in good shape (you should have an up-to-date vaccine administered at least 30 days before departure).

Please take a look at this information and then let us know if you have any more questions. Thanks again, and good luck!
