Compliance with CDC’s Dog Importation Regulations

If you are planning to travel internationally with your dog, you will need proof your dog is immunized against rabies upon entering (or returning to) the United States. However, importing unimmunized dogs is allowed on a limited basis when you meet specific conditions for a permit and apply in advance of travel. If approved for a permit, you must include it with your unimmunized dog’s importation documents.

Applying for CDC’s Permit to Import a Dog Inadequately Immunized Against Rabies (Unimmunized Dog Permit)

Bringing a Dog into the United States: All dogs arriving into the United States must be healthy and, with limited exceptions, have a valid rabies vaccination certificate.

Changes in Importation Process: CDC’s unimmunized dog permit replaces the paper-based process. At least 10 business days before arriving into the United States with an unimmunized dog, dog owners and importers should apply online for a permit.
