Whether you are moving your dog or cat to the Caribbean, there is much advance planning required. Each island nation is governed separately by one’s set of import and export requirements depending on the type of animal you are moving or traveling with. Some countries require import permits and only allow designated ports of call if arriving by sea. If by air, some aircraft restrict the size of crates allowed or heat restrictions. There are also breed restrictions when flying as well as when entering a new country. Exporting from the Islands also requires strategic planning. All countries require certain vaccinations, testing, health certificates, and other documentation. Travel is most hassle free when you diligently do your research or work with a specialized pet travel agent. This helps to ensure getting your paws to paradise is a carefree and trouble free adventure.
