Pet Passport Guam

Dog Passport Guam

Regulations for taking a pet dog or cat to Guam requires that you must start the process no less than 120 days prior to arrival in order to enter Guam without quarantine.

Pet dogs or cats entering Guam from the United States must conform to Hawaii's five-day or less program. The five-day or less program is designed to allow pets that meet certain qualifications to be released immediately upon their arrival at the Honolulu airport to travel on to Guam. There are five steps to meeting these qualifications.

  1. Dog & Cat Import Permit must be an original - no photocopies. This certificate must be issued by your veterinarian not more than 14 days prior to your arrival in Guam.

    Vaccinations: Your dog or cat must have been vaccinated at least twice in its lifetime for rabies and those vaccinations must be more than 90 days apart. Depending on whether your pet was given the one year or three year rabies vaccine, the latest vaccination must have done no less than 90 days prior to arrival in Guam.
  2. Pet Microchip - The certificate from your veterinarian must state the number of the microchip and it must contain the fact that the veterinarian was able to scan the chip successfully. The microchip can be of the standard US issue (Avid) or (Home Again) type or a 15 digit ISO pet microchip. The microchip must be implanted prior to the pet's Blood Titer Test.
  3.  Blood Titer Test: The blood test must be done not more than 18 months and not less than 120 days prior to arrival in Guam. (Have your veterinarian scan your pet's microchip prior to the titer test.) Your pet's blood sample must be processed at Kansas State University in the US, Research Institute for Animal Science & Biochemistry & Toxicology in Japan or any laboratory approved by the EU.
  4. Fill out an application to the Department of Agriculture, Animal Health Section.
  5. Your pet must be treated for Ticks not more than 14 days prior to arrival in Guam.
The documents and fee must arrive 10 days before the pet's arrival. Since the documents cannot be prepared by your veterinarian more than 14 days prior to arrival you must send them by Federal Express to qualify for airport release of the pet in Hawaii.

Dog Passport Guam

Animals originating from the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii on direct flights to Guam may be exempt from quarantine requirements after meeting shipping requirements.

Banned Breeds: Guam does not publish any banned breeds.

Whenever you travel to a foreign country like Guam, it is always advisable to carry some form of identification indicating ownership of the pet.

Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet will be refused entry or returned to the country of origin or placed in quarantine, all at the expense of the person responsible for your pet.

Inspection: All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the port of entry to Guam. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.

Other Animals: Other vertebrates, such as skunks, wolves, raccoons, ferrets, etc. are generally not permitted to enter Guam.

You can verify that it is not protected under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).  You will need to apply for additional permits if this is the case. Search their database. Over 180 countries participate and enforce CITES regulations. Read more about CITES.

Veterinary Certificate: All countries have unique veterinary certificates. This form may differ from the veterinary certificate issued by veterinarians in the United States. (APHIS 7001) It is an essential part of the cat or dog passport.

Pet Microchip:  Guam does require a pet microchip, we strongly recommend that you microchip your cat or dog prior to traveling.

You will have to meet the requirements for Hawaii and enter through that state. Any quarantine should be done there.

I am flying from Okinawa to Tokyo to Guam. I did all req paperwork to get my dog into Guam but I am having issues with United Airlines and flying my dog from Toyko to Guam. They are saying I have to use a freight forwarder. Any help with this would be great.
Posted on 2014-02-08 05:39:47.0
The reason for this may be because Guam does not have quarantine facilities and United wants to be sure the requirements for Guam are met. If they are not, United must return your pet to Tokyo. Have you spoken with ANA?
Posted on 2014-02-10 04:31:47.0
That's Wrong!!! Guam has 2 Quarantine Facilities! I've called both! Andersen Pet Lodge (Andersen Air Force Base) & Harper Valley. I'll be shipping my husky from Texas to Guam!
Posted on 2014-07-02 19:24:47.0
Quarantine is a 1 day for a stop in Hawaii. Guam the minimum is a 5 day quarantine requirement by Law. It can go from 5 days, 30 days to 120 days. If all your paperwork, rabies test and immunizations are in order you can qualify for the 5 day quarantine!

Has anyone had to deal with traveling with a short-nosed, brachycephalic dog? These dogs cannot travel in the cargo hold, they need to go in the airplane passenger cabin. However, my dog is a large 35 lbs french bulldog who only fits inside a custom sized soft carrier. I'm having trouble finding an airline that will accommodate us. We are traveling from Anchorage, Alaska with a layover in Hawaii and the final destination is Guam. Any suggestions, please?
Posted on 2014-07-10 03:38:03.0
Tamia - there is no commercial airline that will transport your pet in the cabin as you correctly note that it is too big to fit under the seat. It will need to travel in the hold. If you can travel in the fall, you will reduce the risk to your pet. As for airlines, Air Canada, Delta and Alaska Airlines serve the route. Be sure and specify your breed type. The airlines may refer you to their cargo department.

You are correct Nani.

It's best to go with Delta airlines!! They are very accommodating. You can call or view their website for the kennel regulations. But as far as paperwork you'll need for a dog : all vaccines required. Its kine of a list of requirements. But if you can contact Guam agriculture animal health section quarantine for the paperwork list and entry application @ 671- 300-7665/66
Posted on 2014-07-14 15:36:57.0
Tamia- I might be wrong but there might be a chance your pup is on the restricted list for flight! You might want to call Delta airlines. My husky will be flying out to Guam in Sept due to the weather temperatures. I would prefer sooner since all the paperwork is in order...
Posted on 2014-07-14 15:51:52.0
Note that any pets flying into Hawaii and Guam do not allow in cabin. Due to custom quarantine requirements! You might not be able to come into contact with your pet til it reaches its final destination and has been dropped at that the quarantine facility.

Anyone know how many pets you can take at one time on a flight to Guam? We have three and will probably travel United, but maybe Delta.
Posted on 2014-07-25 03:06:56.0
Erika - Guam does not limit the number of pets entering the country. United should not have a problem with 3 pets either.

What kind of health certificates is needed to send a dog to guam? Just a regular vet issued or does it have to be notarized/certified at the state level
Posted on 2014-08-18 16:17:01.0
Tracie - you will need an APHIS form 7001 if coming from the US, The Canada export certificate if coming from Canada, a generic health certificate otherwise.

AndreNadine - if your pets have required paperwork, then a 5 day quarantine would be required.

What's the name of the place In Hawaii they have to stop at and what airline do they have to fly? Can we stop and stay with them?
Posted on 2015-03-05 03:43:59.0
Emily - pets entering Hawaii need to do so at the international airport at Honolulu. There are multiple airlines that fly into Honolulu and many of them will accept pets. (it is not like the UK where airlines must be "approved")

What are the requirements for a pet traveling from Australia to Guam? I understand Australia is also a rabies free country, so I assume that no quarantine is required?
Posted on 2015-04-10 08:38:19.0
Victoria - according to Guam's regulations, as long as your pet arrives in Guam on a direct flight according to shipping requirements, quarantine "may" be exempt. The requirement for entering Guam with a pet are listed here:

Has anyone taken a ferret or ferrets to Guam with them?! Military PCS. Every piece of paperwork or site ive gone on or read all contradicts itself and or has no information at all!
Posted on 2015-04-22 18:10:23.0
Nick or Jamie - ferrets are rabies-carrying animals and have the same requirements as cats and dogs. However, many countries only legislate (and thus provide for) the import of cats and dogs which excludes the import of other animals such as ferrets. Guam is one of them. They do not permit the import of ferrets.

If a dog travels from Hong Kong directly into Guam with all applied paperwork, would the minimum 5 day quarantine be adequate?

Are dogs coming directly from Japan into Guam exempt from the quarantine requirements?

I just flew in Jan with United to Guam and they were wonderful. I left from Las Vegas. I had two under 20lbs adult dogs traveling with me. They ended up going the day before me through cargo due to the required break from flying that United has. The HI staff hold the dogs overnite in a separate kennel and there was a number to call for updates on their condition. The next day when I arrived in HI for my layover we left on the same plane for GU. The pilot actually went down and took pictures of them right before being loaded up onto the plane. They were anxious but looked good. We all arrived in GU just fine. They were transported to the cargo holding area until the staff from the American Medical Clinic Vet were able to pick them up. They were ready to go home the next day by noon. However, the paperwork process is quite lengthy through Guam's Dept. of Agriculture. We did the rabies titer labs months in advance and getting the last bits for the actual entry permit were kind of nerve racking. The flights were great and United was great. There is a cost for the imposed stop over in HI though.
