Most of us are much attached to our pets that we do not think of missing them even during our travel.

The basic details that are to be furnished here can serve as a starting point of your research on importing your pets to United States. Since dogs and cats are common pets, this article tends to deal with the procedures related to them.

Rigid Vaccination Requirement

Some diseases with dogs and cats are likely to be transmitted to human beings. Hence US Public Health Service always requires the pets to be examined at the port of entry and make sure that they are not capable of spreading any communicable disease. Dogs are required to be vaccinated with rabies vaccination thirty days before its arrival. You need to carry a proof of the vaccination. Even if the pet originates from a country which is rabies free, documents supporting your statement will serve good if asked at the port of entry.

Check for Local Restrictions

You need to check with the local county, state and municipal authorities whether they place any restrictions on bringing pets to US.
