Researching Dog Transport to India

Pomeranian“How Do We Ship our Dog to India?”

Dear PetRelocation,

My daughter, who is working in Hartford, CT, wants to send her pet dog permanently to India. Is this possible? How would it work?


Dr. A.


Hi Dr. A,

Thank you for your question. Moving pets to India requires quite a bit of careful paperwork and preparation, as the country made changes to their import rules in 2013 and now operates with strict requirements meant to target animal breeders. Please take a look at this overview of India pet import requirements for an idea of what to expect.

We also recommend double checking with the Ministry of Agriculture to find out about the most current policies, as they could change at any time. As always, we recommend choosing a pet friendly airline and discussing specific procedures and policies with them, as well.

Many people decide to hire pet travel experts to assist with relocations like this, especially if you'd like the dog to fly unaccompanied. If you'd like to find out more about the door-to-door services we offer, please fill out our online consultation form or give our office a call. You're also welcome to visit to locate local agents who may assist you.

Good luck with everything! Let us know if we can be of further assistance.
