Tips for Cat Travel to The United States from Australia

Hi PetRelocation,

My vet suggested I contact an agency to help with relocation and vaccination advice as he was unsure of said requirements for cats traveling from Australia to the United States. Do you have any contacts or can you help me?




Hi Jacinta,

Thanks for reaching out -- you've come to the right place!

When starting to plan a pet move, it's important to first understand the import requirements so that you can start to put together a timeline that works for you. We also recommend crate training your cat, which will help relieve anxiety during the flight, as well as researching your options so that you can choose a pet friendly airline.

Here are a few links that should help you along:

Please look over this information and let us know if you're interested in hiring assistance with your move. We arrange door-to-door pet transportation around the world and would be happy to discuss your options.

Hope this helps! Thanks again for your question and good luck with everything.
