Thank you for your inquiry to CDC-INFO. We are sorry for the delay in responding to your e-mail. A recent high volume of inquiries has slowed our response time. In response to your request for information about importing puppies into the United States from a rabies-free country, we are able to provide you with the following information. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) may request information about your puppy’s country of origin, but CDC does not require proof that your dog has lived in a rabies-free country for its entire life.
Pet owners should know that each state and U.S. Territory has its own rules for pet ownership and importation, and these rules may be different than the federal regulations.
For example, Hawaii and Guam have especially stringent quarantine regulations.
To check the animal import requirements for your destination state, please visit the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service website at: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/
Click on “Imports & Exports,” then click on “Animals,” then click on “Importing into the US,” and find the link on that page for “State requirements and regulations to import an animal or animal product into each U.S. state and territory.”
CDC does strongly recommend that all dogs be vaccinated against rabies, though, so even though it is not required we urge you to have your puppies vaccinated against rabies as soon as possible.
Occasionally pets do become sick or die during flights into the United States. If your dog arrives sick or dead, public health officials are required to find out what happened. It is important to make sure that your pet did not die of a contagious disease that could infect people. This might involve a necropsy or other tests, at your cost, to determine the cause of death. Unfortunately, in many instances the animal’s remains cannot be returned to you after this testing.
It is very important to know that your pet is healthy enough to travel by air.
If there is any doubt, consider leaving your pet with a trusted friend, family member, or boarding kennel during your trip, or think about taking another mode of transportation if possible.
