The Aphis Vet Health Certificate Form For International Pet Transport
Also, we highly recommend having your vet sign the form in blue ink to easily show both the USDA and destination country’s government that it is an original document. As a federally accredited veterinarian practice, we can issue travel and acclimation certificates for your healthy pet so they can travel internationally with you. Each country has different animal health requirements that travelers must meet so it’s important to start the process early. Our website covers the requirements for more than 130 countries. Check the APHIS Pet Travel Website for your destination country’s entry requirements. When traveling by car, it is advised that you carry three different forms of information about your pet to ensure proper guidance and protocols are being followed.
However, do not expect us to have the CVI/Health Certificate waiting for you and to know all the details about completing it. We are experts in treating and preventing animal disease, not in animal importation and exportation. Each individual country’s veterinary inspection process is different. We can assist you with animal exportation and importation, but it is not a primary focus of what we do. Things will go much smoother if you take time to be well prepared ahead of your visit to complete the CVI/Health Certificate. Once your veterinarian completes the health certificate, it will need to be submitted for endorsement by mail or in person at your local USDA-APHIS Veterinary Services Export Service Office.
Make sure all dates are written correctly , microchip numbers match up to microchip paperwork, your pet’s age on the 7001 matches what’s on their vaccination records (you wouldn’t believe how often this is incorrect!), etc. Therefore, you want to start your preparations well in advance, so you will not have to rush and run the risk of some detail being overlooked. Detailed guidance documents on sending pets to select countries as well as importing pets into the U.S. Our experience includes, international and domestic shipping, breeding, grooming, showing, training, vet surgical assistance and rescue. We have the knowledge and expertise to guide you through the complex and changing airline shipping system.
The veterinarians at Pet Medical Services are all USDA Accredited. Each country and state has their own specific requirements and regulations. These regulations have been created to prevent the spread of diseases, and to help keep track of animals during travel.
Our perspectives on pet travel are the same as our fellow ‘Pet Moms and Dads’ or caring pet guardians. We each have pets as parts of our families, and we understand the very personal and immediate concerns associated with bringing our pets and other family members half way around the world with us. To learn the requirements for moving your pet from your current location to another U.S. state, please select your destination state from the list below. If you have additional questions or need to determine what type of form will be accepted when the pet travels, please contact the State Veterinarian’s office in the destination state. Visit ourCountry Acceptance List for VEHCS to find out if the country of destination for your animal/pet export allows you obtain your health certificate online.
Additionally, The USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is responsible for ensuring that people traveling by air with pets treat them safely and humanely. This includes regulations, tests, inspections and forms that need to be completed by an accredited APHIS Veterinarian before you travel. We also recommend calling your airline in advance to understand their requirements for traveling with your pet. If you intend to bring your pet back into the U.S., there may be certain re-entry requirements, depending on where you traveled.
