What is the process for moving my pets from Texas to the Dominican Republic? I have found the info on microchipping and documentation, but will they need to be quarantined? How will they be transported?




Hi Juliann,

Thanks for your question. Every country is different when it comes to pet import rules, so it's smart to start researching well in advance of your trip to find out what you'll need to do.

Here are the pet import requirements for the Dominican Republic according to the USDA. It sounds like you're aware of the rabies vaccine rules, etc., and no, there is currently no quarantine.

As for the travel details, you'll want to book a flight with a pet friendly airline and check with them to find out their latest preferences and regulations when it comes to bringing pets on board. We often use carriers like United, KLM and Lufthansa due to their established pet policies and safety procedures.

You'll also need to secure the correct travel crates for your pets. Check out our website for more information about choosing the right travel crates.
