Regulations for taking a pet dog or cat to St Kitts and Nevis

Dog Passport St Kitts Nevis

Banned Breeds:: the following breeds will not be permitted entry into St Kitts and Nevis - Pit Bull Terrier/ Staffordshire Terrier Dogo Argentino, Presa Canario, Fila Brasileiro, Japanese Tosa and American Bulldog.

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 oerson responsible for the pet.

Other Animals: All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements and have a health certificate to accompany them. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.

If your pet is not a dog, cat or ferret, and especially if it is a turtle or parrot, you should 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.

Maria - try contacting the Ministry of Agriculture on St Kitts and Nevis. We do not have a list of banned animals.

I have heard there is a "dog broker" on St Kitts who can help with pet entry. Does anyone know of such a company?

Does your dog need a rabies titer or just the rabies vaccine

Unless your pet is entering St Kitts from England, Ireland, or Sweden, it will need both a rabies vaccination and a titer test. They should be done 30 days from each other with the microchipping and vaccination coming first.

can I bring a neutered rat with me to Ross University? he is very well trained
Posted on 2015-11-18 02:04:03.0

Fellow Kelsey, are rats?
Posted on 2015-11-18 02:11:02.0

Pocket pets are allowed, I believe. I had a classmate who brought her pet ferret, but it isn't getting them onto the island that is the problem. Bringing exotics back into the States is extremely tricky from my understanding.

Is there a limit to how many pets you can bring in at one time? I have several cats and 2 dogs and am thinking of taking some with me and having a friend bring the others later....
