US Map by State

There is no official quarantine for pets entering the USA from the United Kingdom. The entry requirements vary from state to state - some requiring that a rabies vaccination be given to the animals on arrival in the USA if there is no documentary proof that this has already been given. The UK vaccination is however different from the one obtainable in the USA as it is made from a dead, rather than live, culture and takes longer to be effective (approximately 30 days).

It is essential that all pets entering the USA must have the correct accompanying paperwork. Sadly, pets excluded from entry into the United States must either be exported or destroyed. While awaiting disposition, pets will be detained at the owner's expense at the port of arrival. Generally, all pets must be imported or exported through one of the following designated ports.

Since hours of service and availability of inspectors from the other agencies involved may vary from port to port, you are strongly urged to check with your anticipated port of arrival before importing a pet or other animal. This will assure expeditious processing and reduce the possibility of unnecessary delays.

Pets must be shipped in IATA approved transit enclosures that allow the animal to stand up without touching the top of the box, lie down and turn around. It is a requirement that pets are shipped as manifest cargo and not as excess baggage.



Helen R. with her dog Archie “I had been working in England for 2 years and acquired a new best friend by the name of Archie. A good career opportunity came up back home in the US and I literally had just 6 weeks to sort everything out and move back to Boston. There’s no way I could have left Archie so I contacted PassportForPets who arranged absolutely everything for Archie’s transatlantic relocation. It was a big worry off my mind and yes, I would thoroughly recommend them”
