Pet Travel to Sarawak, Malaysia (It’s Tricky)

Dear PetRelocation,

Hey there! I'm thinking of buying a Pembroke Welsh Corgi from a friend but am quite confused with the shipment details. Is it possible to ship a pet to Sarawak? What are the requirements? And which air carrier should we use?




Hi Paula,

Thank you for your question! We specialize in handling complicated pet moves and would be happy to offer some advice.

A few years ago we safely moved a family's pets to Sarawak and would like to share this overview of the pet import process for Sarawak and Sabah. As you'll see, it will be tricky to move your Corgi here but that doesn't mean it's impossible. The United States is considered a "category 2" country and your dog will need to fulfill a quarantine upon arrival.

For additional information that may be helpful, please review these frequently asked pet travel questions as well as the Malaysia government website. As for airlines, we would suggest using KLM or Lufthansa as they are both pet safe and we frequently use them for our pet clients.

If you think you'd like some assistance with this move, please contact us to receive a pet travel consultation.

Hope this helps, good luck with everything!
