Pet International Health Certificates
After clicking the 2 buttons to the left – checking the country of travels’ requirements on the USDA website, please answer the following questions:
Is your pet up to date/current on their rabies vaccine? Does it meet the requirements of the country you are traveling to?
Does your pet have a microchip implanted?
You must have the exact travel destination address for the certificate. We need to know where you are traveling to, the address, date of arrival and length of stay.
Before booking an appointment to issue the health certificate, be sure that all of the requirements are within the travel timeframe and allow 10-12 business days for the International Health Certificate to reach the endorsement office, be endorsed and then be sent back.
Certain blood test requirements, ex. Rabies Vaccine Titer can take up to 30 business days to obtain results. Some countries require multiple tests for specific parasites and other illnesses.
The cost of the certificate to one specific destination is currently $700. If you are taking a connecting flight from another country, they may also have their own specific requirements and the certificate would also cost the same, so 2 international health certificates would be $1400.
