List of Country Links for Helpful Information and Regulations for Pet Travel

Please note we have done our best to help create this list, however it is not  comprehensive.  In some cases we were not able to find government sites, or perhaps they were in another language that we were unfamiliar with.  If you know of an official site for another country, please feel free to send us the link, and we will add it to help other families obtain the appropriate details for their pets.

Please be careful as the regulations for international pet travel change frequently, and not all sites are kept current or complete.  Please always ask us to confirm information.  We will speak to our very helpful and knowledgeable IPATA colleagues in the country you are traveling to or from.  They are the best sources for up to the minute government regulation or airline policy changes for pets in their area.
