How does the owner receive the Neighbor Island Inspection Permit (NIIP)?

The Animal Quarantine Station will send an email to the primary email address listed on the AQS-279 form once documents are received and the pet qualifies.

To qualify, the pet owner must submit the AQS-279 form, 2 most recent rabies vaccination certificates, payment, and schedule an inspection at an approved clinic after the arrival date at least 30 days before arrival in Hawaii. In addition, the AQS must have received the FAVN results from the testing lab before the NIIP will be approved.

It is strongly advised that the FAVN test be done well in advance so that a passing FAVN is obtained before requesting a Neighbor Island Inspection Permit. Failing to do so has resulted in pet owners not obtaining a Neighbor Island Inspection Permit in time for their flight.
