Traveling by Air with a Husky

huskyDear PetRelocation,

What's involved in moving a two-year-old Husky from Tel Aviv to the United States?

If he has his rabies, what other shots are needed? Does he need to be quarantined when he gets to the USA or can he come straight to the house? What does all this cost?




Hi Doris,

Thanks for your questions! Moving your Husky will necessitate meeting these pet import requirements for the United States. Good news: there is currently no quarantine for pets coming to the United States.

To travel smoothly, you will need to have proof that he has an up-to-date rabies vaccine and will also need an International Health Certificate issued within 10 days of departure. We recommend taking the time to choose a pet friendly airline and making sure your dog is accustomed to being in a travel crate (here are a few crate training tips for dogs getting ready to travel).

If you'd like some assistance and are interested in finding out more about our door-to-door services, please fill out our online consultation form. Every pet move is a little different, so order to offer an estimate of services we would need to know a few more details about your move. If you're interested in handling the move independently, we suggest searching for local agents using

Thanks again and happy travels!
