Planning Bird Shipping to Hawaii
I know there are a lot of regulations with quarantine and regulations with dogs and cats going to Hawaii, but what will I need for my bird?
I know she'll need a health check-up two weeks prior to flying, and I was told the vet should have everything in order for us to move to Hawaii.
I would just like to double check.
Thanks for the question, we'd be happy to offer some direction. As of July 2014, according to the official Hawaii government website most bird species require two different permits, including -- since you're coming from the Mainland United States -- this import permit.
In addition to those official Hawaii-specific details, here is more general information from our blog about transporting birds.
It's important to secure the correct airline-approved travel container and to make sure you understand all airline regulations and import procedures in order to avoid delays. Please note that the Honolulu airport is the only entry port for birds in the state, for example.
Please contact us if you think you'd like some help relocating with your bird, and good luck!
