** Failure to provide medical records/vaccine history may prevent/impede your ability to travel with your pet at your desired departure time.**
Note: Most countries require a physical exam be performed by a veterinarian within 10 days of travel.
Re-Entry to the US: If you intend to bring your pet back into the U.S, there may be certain
re-entry requirements, depending on where you traveled. You should plan for them now.
See the Pet import section for details.Work with your veterinarian to complete all required paperwork for re-entry. Please consult the APHIS pet travel website to access the required certificate/form, when applicable.
After your pet’s exam & health certificate have been completed, signed, and dated by your
veterinarian, most countries require that international health certificates be submitted to a USDA
APHIS Veterinary Services office for endorsement. They will review the full certificate and any
attached/required paperwork. If all requirements are met, they will endorse the certificate and
mail it directly to you. If they find any issues with the certificate or find that the requirements to
travel to that country are not met, they will alert us for correction & resubmission before they
endorse the certificate.
Because this endorsement with USDA APHIS is required by most destination countries, it is in
your best interest to ensure your exam appointment is 9-10 days prior to travel to allow enough
time for the certificate to be endorsed by the USDA and sent back to you prior to departure.
