Pet and animal importation to the United States is subject to health, quarantine, agriculture, wildlife, and customs requirements. The many regulations and prohibitions that govern pet importation into the United States can be difficult to understand and execute. The Importation of Pets and Other Animals into the United States Information Guide was developed to help you understand the process individuals go through to bring an animal into the United States. The information package explains in detail how to import dogs, cats, birds, horses, turtles, and many others pets and exotic animals. It provides the necessary background information about federal, state, and territorial regulations in addition to how to transport your pet, as well as where and how to quarantine. It also lists embargoes on certain pets and port contacts.
