Pet Travel to India and Saudi Arabia

Name: Anoop

From: Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

To: Saudi Arabia, Dammam

Pet: Labrador Retriever

Dear PetRelocation,


I need to relocate my pet from India to Saudi. Would your company assist with the required paperwork to get the dog into Saudi from India and back?

I have no idea if Saudi Arabia is okay with dogs or not and I need all the help I can get to move my dog. If I can't bring him, I will have to skip the assignment.


Hi Anoop,
Sure, we'd be happy to discuss your move with you! Often situations that seem impossible can be handled smoothly after all. Saudi Arabia and India are both tricky countries when it comes to pet travel (we've moved pets to both of those countries), so you're doing the right thing by seeking a little assistance. Our services typically cover pick up and delivery on either end of the trip as well as help with vet paperwork, etc.
Right now you can take a look at the pet import requirements for Saudi Arabia and for India. The final cost will depend on a few details so we'll need to speak to you either by phone or email to find out more. Feel free to give our office a call at your convenience, or you can fill out our online consultation form.
We look forward to speaking with you soon!

Thanks for contacting us with your question. Unfortunately, birds cannot be imported to India at this time due to the threat of Avian Flu. Sorry to be the bearer of this news.

Hi, I am planning to get a macaw bird imported to Jubail, Saudi Arabia from a pet breeder who has promised to send me the bird. I am aware of the pet scams happening and hence the breeder has agreed to a cash on delivery. Do you think it is fine to proceed and get the bird to Saudi Arabia or do you think you have some suggestions or measures I should be taking in advance?

Hi Akhil,

You are always taking a risk when purchasing a pet sight unseen. We recommend taking a look at these pet buyer tips on the IPATA website to help you navigate this and make a decision. Additionally, you should know that a Macaw is a CITES protected species and therefore requires quite a bit of paperwork and expense to import and export. If you need assistance with this process, there are many local pet shippers who may be able to assist or provide guidance. You can look them up in this directory. Best of luck with everything!

Dear Sir, Last year i took my cat (Persian male) by Saudi Airlines to Lucknow, UP India, but custom did not allow the Airline staff to take it out from airplane as in Lucknow there is no quarantine office so no animal is allowed at airport (unfortunately Saudia staff here in Jeddah does not know this rule, So about 20 hours my cat remained confined in a small cage without food and water. Luckily he survived and my son at Jeddah got it with very difficultly. My question is whether you relocate that cat either at Lucknow or Delhi and What are your charges etc?Regards

Hello petrelocation!I have two canaries in Saudi Arabia, I want to take them to India permanently. Is it possible? If so, could you please tell me the procedure to bring them to India. Thank You

By Christina Q. on December 11, 2017 at 9:16 am

Hello Madhu!

Thank you for contacting us with your question. Unfortunately, birds cannot be imported to India at this time due to the threat of Avian Flu. International bird travel typically requires a lot of planning and attention to detail, so if you decide to move with your canaries to a different country in the future, I suggest taking a look at these bird travel tips.

And, of course, if it’s a country we can move birds to we are happy to help! All you would need to do is fill out our Arrange a Move form and one of our pet relocation specialists will be in touch!
