While there are many steps in transporting your pet domestically, relocating internationally adds an additional level of complexity. Each country has their own requirements for pet importation, determined by the Minister of Agriculture of the country. Some countries require a lengthy quarantine, others have more rigid standards and some only accept pets at certain airports within that country. The most important thing to remember is, just like human travel, pets also need additional documentation in order to enter its desired country. Each country is different, and they all require their own documentation when accepting pets.
