Is air travel right for your pet?
General eligibility criteria
An import permit is necessary to import your pet into Los Angeles. You will need to submit the application and the supporting documentation that includes rabies vaccination, the rabies titre test declaration and the rabies titre test laboratory report. All the supporting documentation should bear the microchip number of the pet clearly.
Imports permits take about 20 days to process and are valid for 12 months from the date of issue. It is critical that you submit the correct documentation; incorrect and incomplete applications will be put on hold by the department.
Your pet has to undergo a pre-export clinical examination by a government approved vet within five days of flying. The vet has to examine for external parasites and check for signs of infectious or contagious diseases.
After the clinical examination, your pet will need a veterinary health certificate signed by an official government veterinarian in the country of export. The certificate must have details of all the vaccinations and other health tests in the proper format. This is an important document, and any error in the document will result in increased quarantine time for your pet.
Pets arriving from Category I countries are not obliged to spend time in quarantine. Your pet is free to go home with you after post-arrival inspection. Cats and dogs entering Los Angeles from Category II and Category III countries will spend about 10 days in the quarantine facility, provided your pet meets all the veterinary requirements.
Pets travelling from non-approved countries have to spend at least six months in an approved country in Category II or III before moving to Australia. Upon entry in Los Angeles, your pet will spend 10 days in the quarantine facility before you can take him or her home.
