Pet Passport Antigua Barbuda
REGULATIONS FOR TAKING A PET DOG OR CAT TO
Antigua does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:
Your dog or cat, when entering Antigua Barbuda must be microchipped with the ISO 11784/11785 15 digit pet microchip, vaccinated for rabies, and then have a Blood Titre Test at an approved laboratory.
The results must then be forwarded for approval to The Chief Veterinary Officer who will then issue an Import License for your pet.
Just prior to travel, the Antigua Barbuda Veterinary Certificate must be completed.
Although it is not required, we recommend that a USDA or CFIA licensed veterinarian complete the form and you have it endorsed by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included.
Antigua and Barbuda also require a Ticks & Tapeworm test shortly before entry. This will complete your cat or dog passport for Antigua Barbuda.
Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet may be refused entry and the relevant authority in consultation with an authorized veterinarian can decide to return the pet home, or place your cat or dog in quarantine at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for the pet, or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be arranged.
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 as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.
Many countries have a unique veterinary certificates. This form may differ from the International Veterinary Certificate issued by veterinarians in the United States. (APHIS 7001) It is an essential part of the cat or dog passport.
