Pet Passport United States
This package contains information and detailed step by step instructions on importing your dog or cat to the United States. If your pet is not traveling to the United States, then you can select the country your pet is traveling to by clicking here to select a pet passport for another country.
Note: if your pet is transiting the United States on the same airline, these forms will not be required as long as your airline is able to hold and move your pet from plane to plane when traveling in the cargo hold.
Carefully following these instructions will make clearing customs easier and quicker. The instructions will also help to avoid having your pet denied entry, put into quarantine or returned to your country of origin.
Our information is constantly being updated to keep it current.
The United States requires that dogs, cats and ferrets older than 3 months of age must be vaccinated for rabies at least 30 days prior to entry unless your pet was born and raised in or has lived in a country the US considers to be rabies-free for 6 months previous to travel or since birth. Your airline may require that your dog or cat must also be accompanied by a certificate of good health stating that your pet is healthy and free of diseases communicable to humans.
If your dog is entering the United States from a screwworm infested country (see step #4 here), then proof of a screwworm inspection by a licensed veterinarian will be required between one and five days of entering the country.

From one of our customers leaving the United States with her pet: When I was at the USDA getting the pups certified for export there were 3 other people there. Each one had huge difficulties with the wrong documents and other snafus that cost days of time and hundreds of extra dollars! (hotels, new vets, etc).
The man came to the counter with my documents an hour earlier than they projected and I was READY TO GO! Everything was perfect. Everything y’all sent was pretty straightforward and easy. Thank you!!

The information came in to my email really fast and was streamlined. The extra information about capitalization and ink color was also really helpful. The attachments were easily opened and I think it was worth every penny that I spent.
Mimi was well behaved throughout the flight, and the Pet Travel Store paperwork made it all much easier.
My chocolate Labrador loves to visit people she visits residents in care homes all over the county and everyone loves her. She has a lovely temperament and a beautiful coat. This makes up for the fact that she is a Labrador who does not retrieve, hates water, and sleeps most of the day. Thanks for making it easy.
My vet in Colorado recommended the Pet Travel Store to me. There are no words to describe the incredibly kind, attentive, and professional service I received from Pet Travel Store. I was in Italy, they were in the States, but it was as though we were in the same room. The response time was as immediate as it could be considering the time difference. They were very helpful and I'm not sure what we would have done without their guidance. I will definitely refer friends to them and continue to use them for my future travel needs.
Thank you so much to Pet Travel Store! This picture would not have been possible without your products, guidance & support. You helped me get my beloved 15 year old cat and 13 year old dog home from Germany!
We are on the process of completing all the necessary documents by following all the instructions you've given to us. We're planning to bring our dogs in the USA by mid of March 2017. So far, the papers are all very helpful and informative. That's why we are praying for their hassle - and stress free trip.
not easy to understand when mixed with mexico
This passport is very straight forward and easy to understand and use.
My finace stopped in France to pick up my kitten to bring home to the US. We were very concerned about the requirements but were able to provide all necesary information with the pet passport product.He had zero issues!
