Dear PetRelocation,

I would just like to know about the requirements for entering the USA. Will my cat need to be in quarantine? If so, for how long?

Thank You,



Hi Marianne,

The United States does not impose a quarantine for pets entering the country (except if you're going to Hawaii), however you do need to show that your cat has an up-to-date rabies vaccine and an international health certificate issued by your vet within 10 days of departure (this is required by all airlines and states your cat is fit to fly). You can view the US requirements here.

Please take a look at our blog if you have more questions about pet travel, and let us know if you're interested in our door-to-door pet transportation services.

We'd be happy to assist you further, and either way, have a good trip!
