Pet Passport Turks & Caicos

Dog Passport Australia

Regulations for taking a pet dog or cat to Turks and Caicos from a rabies free country or a country with a low incidence of rabies.

Domestic Pets - there are no restrictions on bringing domestic pets into the Turks and Caicos Islands from countries the Department of Agriculture considers as a rabies free country such as the following:
Antigua, Australia, Anguilla, Barbados, Dominica, Jamaica, Montserrat, New Zealand, Ireland, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Virgin Islands, and United Kingdom. Pets must have resided in these countries for at least six (6) months.

Pets entering from countries with a low incidence of rabies such as the United States and Canada must follow these steps:

This will complete your cat or dog passport for the Turks and Caicos islands.

**If traveling from the United States or Canada, the rabies vaccination can be given at least 3 months and not more than 12 months prior to entry. Your pet must have had a Blood Titer Test done during its lifetime and the vaccination must not have expired at any time.

Dog Passport Turks and Caicos

There are no quarantine facilities in Turks and Caicos. Pets that do not clear inspection will be held for no more than 48 hours pending deportation or will be euthanized.

Your pet must be spayed or neutered to enter the country unless you are a registered breeder.

Breed Restrictions: You may NOT bring certain breeds into the country which are considerd dangerous: Akita, Any breed of Bulldog, any breed of Mastiff, any pit bull including the American Staffordshire Terrier, the Pit Bull Terrier, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier or a mixed-breed dog which has any pit bull lineage, Bandog, Beauceron, Canary dog, Presa Canario, Doberman Pinscher, Dogo Argentino, Fila Brazilliero, Japanese Tosa, Jindo, Kuvasz, Rhodesian Ridgeback, Roman Fighting Dog, Rottweiler, South African Boerboel, or any dog which appears to have been bred for fighting. 

Whenever you travel to a foreign country like the Turks and Caicos, 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 Turks and Caicos. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.

Thank you for this information. I'm not certain from your post. Do I have to put my cats in quarantine to enter Turks and Caicos as a long-term resident?

You must follow the rules. It also depends on what country you are traveling from.

approximately, how much does it cost for door-to-door delivery of 2 pups from nyc to turks & caicos?

Because of the strict requirements for entering Turks and Caicos, your pups would have to be vaccinated no sooner than 3 months and a Blood Titer test would need to be done. I would suggest that you fill in your details here for a free quote: http://www.pettraveltransport.com/pettransportquote.html

Unfortunately, the Turks and Caicos will not permit the entry of any type of Bulldog.

Amy - if your pets have never had a titer test, they must have one no sooner than 3 months prior to entering Turks & Caicos.

Jody - a Blood Titer Test (aka RNATT) test is administered by your veterinarian. There is a lab in Kansas City approved to process samples.
