What to do when no country requirements available on the USDA-APHIS Pet Travel Site

Navigating the complex pet import regulations listed on the USDA-APHIS website can be challenging. But what happens when the country you're interested in isn't listed? 

When looking for pet travel entry requirements for countries not listed on the USDA-APHIS website, consider the following steps:

  1. GVL’s Concierge Service: GVL’s Concierge Service staff specializes in international pet travel and can provide detailed guidance on specific country requirements, documentation, and transport options.
  2. Embassy or Consulate Contact: Contact the embassy or consulate of the destination country in the United States. They can provide the most accurate and official information regarding the entry requirements for pets. You can typically find contact details for embassies or consulates online.
  3. Online Forums and Communities: Engage with online forums or social media groups dedicated to pet travel. Members often share their firsthand experiences and tips about traveling to specific countries with pets.
  4. Airline Consultation: Contact airlines that operate between your home and the destination country. Airlines are usually familiar with the pet import regulations of the countries they serve and can provide relevant information or direct you to the right resources.
  5. Search Online: Conduct a detailed online search to find any government or official websites for the destination country that may have information on pet entry requirements. Sometimes, the Ministry of Agriculture or a similar government body of the destination country provides this information.

By following these steps, you should be able to find the necessary information for traveling with your pet to a country not listed on the USDA-APHIS website.
