I want to take my cat from Malaysia to the United States. What do I have to do?




Hi Taw,

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

Your cat will need an up-to-date rabies vaccine, a microchip, health certificate, and we recommend choosing a pet-friendly airline. (We often use United, KLM and Lufthansa, for example.) In case your cat has never traveled or been in a travel crate before, here are some cat crate-training tips.

Please contact us if you have any questions about moving, and have a great trip!

Hi. I'd like to know some information for pet travel . Now I'm living in USA but 2 of my dogs left in Malaysia. So I want to know how could you guys arrange for between pets and families to meet ? And may I know your office address in Malaysia ?Thanks
