Pet Travel Question: Transiting through Tokyo

Hi PetRelocation,

My two dogs will be traveling in the cabin with me. We will have a five hour layover at Tokyo/Narita International Airport on our way to Guam.

I know the requirements for Guam, but will Japan also require anything due to the layover? We are flying on the same airline for the entire trip.




Hi Sara,

Thanks for the question. When transiting through an airport on the way to your final destination, it's not necessary to meet the layover country's requirements unless you're leaving the airport or switching airlines.

Unless your airline requires something different, it sounds like you're in good shape and won't need to worry about Japan's import requirements.

Please let us know if you'd like some assistance with your move and have a great trip!
