Pet Passport Tonga
REGULATIONS FOR TAKING A PET DOG OR CAT TO
Tonga does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:
To bring a pet dog or cat to Tonga, you must first file an application form with the Tonga Ministry of Agriculture and Food.
Your pet must arrive in Tonga as manifested cargo. It will then be turned over to the Livestock Quarantine Officer inspection of the animal and documents.
Your pet cat or dog must be vaccinated for rabies between 30 days and 12 months prior to entry into the country. A USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must then complete the Tonga Veterinary Certificate for Dogs or Tonga Veterinary Certificate for Cats for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are not traveling from either of these countries, the Governing Authority of your country should endorse the forms. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included. The rules for cats are slightly different.
If all documents are in order and the veterinary officer finds the pet to be healthy it will be released to your custody within a few hours.
There are fees for inspection.

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.
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.
