Dog Passport Trinidad Tobago

Whenever you travel to a foreign country like Trinidad and Tobago, it is always advisable to carry some form of identification indicating ownership of your 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 Trinidad and Tobago. 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: Birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits are not subject to requirements of rabies vaccination, but may have to meet other requirements and should have a health certificate to enter Trinidad and Tobago. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.

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.

HI Brent - you will need an application for import from the Ministry of Food Production to bring your puppy to Trinidad. There will be no quarantine or titer test and a vaccination for rabies is not required (but we would recommend it..) You can find details here: http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/Trinidad_Tobago.cfm.

I want to bring two dobermans into Trinidad from out of the UK. Is there a minimum age limit? In other words, must the dogs pass a certain age before they can be allowed into Trinidad?

I want to transport my dog from Venezuela back to the United States but I am traveling through Trinidad and staying one night. What documents need to be completed/approved for my dog?

Jordan - you will not want to clear customs in Trinidad. The requirements are very strict and quarantine is required. Best to transit through the airport on the same airline.
