My daughter, who is working in Hartford, CT, wants to send her pet dog permanently to India. Is this possible? How would it work?
Hi Dr. A,
Thanks for your question. Moving pets to India requires quite a bit of careful paperwork and preparation, as the country made changes to their policy last year and now operate with strict rules 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 free quote form or give our office a call. You're also welcome to visit IPATA.org to locate local agents who may assist you.
Good luck with everything, and we hope to hear from you soon.
