Are You in Canada Temporarily?
Jurisdiction entry requirements for dogs and cats can change without notice. However, we generally recommend the following to mitigate unforeseen costs and delays when travelling, including within North America:
- Plan ahead; look into requirements for the country you are planning to travel to with your pet at least one year before your anticipated travel date.
- Ensure your pet has a readable microchip.
- Ensure your pet has a current rabies vaccination, given post microchip implantation. Most jurisdictions require rabies vaccinations to have been completed at least 30 days prior to arrival but within the last year.
- Ensure your pet’s standard vaccinations are up to date, including for Bordetella.
If you are returning to one of the following destinations, please follow these additional requirements:
Australia or New Zealand – Your pet requires the FAVN rabies titer blood test at least 6 months prior to your planned arrival date. These countries only recognize one-year rabies vaccinations, so be sure not to let the vaccination lapse.
Brazil – Vaccinate your pet with a rabies vaccine at least 21 days prior to travel.
China – Please note that China has a “one pet per passport” policy. Also, depending on the arrival airport, your pet may be required to arrive within a certain amount of time after your arrival. Please contact us regarding specifics.
The EU – Pets can only enter the EU 21 days after their rabies vaccination.
Hong Kong – Your pet must have resided in the country of origin for a minimum of 6 months prior to travel (unless a residency waiver is obtained).
Japan – Vaccinate your pet with a rabies vaccine twice (a minimum of 31 days apart), and know that your pet requires the FAVN rabies titer blood test at least 180 days prior to your planned arrival date.
South Korea – Your pet requires the FAVN rabies titer blood test and can travel immediately after receiving the test results. However, it can take several weeks to receive the results, so allow for longer preparation time of travel.
Singapore – Your pet requires the FAVN rabies titer blood test at least 30 days (but no more than 6 months) prior to export. Upon arrival, your pet will be quarantined for 10 or 30 days, depending on the timing and number of its rabies vaccinations. Please contact us regarding specifics.
Taiwan – Your pet requires the FAVN rabies titer blood test at least 180 days prior to your planned arrival date.
Thailand – Vaccinate your pet with a rabies vaccine at least 21 days but not more than 1 year prior to travel.
