Pet Exports
(UK to USA)

Transporting a dog to the USA

Relocate your dog to USA with an IPATA registered and approved USA dog shipper such as Airsupply shippping (passportforpets.co.uk).  You know your dog relies on you to make the best decisions about their welfare and we follow the strict operating code laid down by IPATA.  These rules are designed to ensure that your dog is not unduly stressed by the travel and that they arrive in the US in good condition.  However, we have been shipping dogs to the USA for over 40 years and we actually go beyond IPATA guidelines because we want both happy pets AND owners! Our pet shipping business continues to expand and we can only achieve this through happy customers who recommend our services to others.

The good news about shipping your dog to the USA from a Rabies free country or Rabies controlled Country like the UK is that there is no quarantine requirement as long as your dog has been in the UK for 6 months or more.  However, your dog will have to have documented evidence of being vaccinated against rabies otherwise this will lead to entry delays because you will be asked to sign a 'Confinement Agreement' (this basically says that you will get your dog vaccinated and then confine them for a minimum of 30 days after treatment). If you are importing a puppy that is too young (usually under 6 months of age) to have had the rabies vaccination then you will need a Confinement Agreement, see: USA CDC Dog Confinement Agreements for more details. Whilst the CDC (US authority on pet imports) does not require your dog to have a certificate of general health MOST AIRLINES DO REQUIRE THIS before they will alow your pet to board an aircraft.

Generally, all dogs 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.

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