Typically endorsement will take a few days. If the health certificate is not correct or incomplete, the processing time will likely be extended. The veterinarian and/or the pet owner will be informed of the errors and provided guidance on how to correct any problems noted.

We highly recommend the pet’s health certificate be issued and endorsed as early as possible based on the destination country’s requirements. This will help prevent any delays in travel should an unanticipated problem with the paperwork arise.
