Moving with your pet includes researching airline requirements and importation laws in your new location. Many airlines have requirements for animal size, weight, or breed, number of animals, kennel construction, documentation and season they allow animals to travel in. Contact the airline for specifics. Military flights may have space for small pets, but availability and regulations frequently change. Contact your local Personal Property Office to request specific country instructions. Military OneSource can make your move easier with helpful tips, resources and hands-on information related to moving with pets and more.
There are strict importation laws in many international and domestic locations. This may include extended quarantines, restrictions on breeds or types of animals, and requirements for testing. Carefully research these rules as they could affect your moving schedule or ability to PCS with your pet. At a minimum, a health certificate issued by a licensed veterinarian is always required. As a pet owner, you are solely responsible for ensuring your pet meets the travel requirements. As soon as you know your travel details, immediately contact your veterinarian for information. Preparation for some countries can take up to six months! Additional resources for animal import and export requirements are on the U.S. Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Pet Travel website (https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/pet-travel/pet-travel-home-page) and in your destination installation's Shipping Pets article.
