Getting Your Pet passport

A pet passport or pet travel schemes (PETS) originated overseas in the UK and is a program implemented by participating countries including the US and many places within the European Union.

If you’re looking to travel abroad with your dog, you’ll need to take them to a certified veterinarian of the US Department of Agriculture. Here the vet will issue a passport with all the forms and details you need for travel.

To start traveling with your pet, you must first visit a USDA certified vet for all the initial forms and information. Stay tuned for part two as we take a glance into what else is needed for a pet passport!
