I am planning to take my pet to India for a period of three months and come back to the United States. Could you please let me know the documentation required and processing fees?
Thanks for contacting us. Traveling to India for three months means preparing your dog for the trip there and then meeting the necessary requirements for the return to the states. Here are the pet import requirements for India as well as the pet import requirements for the United States -- you'll need to formulate a schedule in order to secure all the documents at the proper time.
The fees will depend on how much of the process you handle yourself and how much you'd like to hire someone else to help with (drivers to or from the airport, for example). You can check out IPATA.org to contact individual pet shipping agents, or you can contact us if you're interested in our services. Finally, if you'd like to try to do it yourself, you can peruse our blog for more resources about traveling with pets to India.
No matter how you decide to do it, good luck with everything!
