Ask The Pet Relocation Expert

Q. What are the regulations for bringing Myna birds from Iran [Tehran] to the United States? -- Azar M.

A. Hi Azar,

Shipping exotic species, like birds, reptiles and small mammals, requires additional research and paperwork. Pet Relocation ships exotic pets as part of our services, however, the below links should help you if you are interested in researching your pet bird's move.

Permits

CITES (or the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) protects not only endangered species but also species that might become endangered due to international trade. If you are moving internationally with an exotic species, you will want to check the CITES Species Database to see if your pet is protected. All parrots are protected by CITES, and typically require both import and export CITES permits from their respective countries. These CITES permits can take up to 6 months to obtain from US Fish & Wildlife Services. Please check the US Fish & Wildlife Services - Animal Import & Export website.

Pet: Jenny (Fox Terrier and Lhasa Apso Cross breed, 9 yrs, 8 kg)

Q. Hi PetRelocation,

Can my dog travel with me in cabin? If so, please do recommend an airline for me to travel along with my dog from Chennai, TN, India to Toronto, ON, Canada.

Also provide me with the list of requirements according to Canadian Food Inspection Agency. I haven't maintained the vaccination card though my dog has had regular vaccinations. Can I provide the No Objection Certificate alone? I also don't feel comfortable with my dog travelling in cargo since she is already 9 years old.

Thanks,
Sheeba

Pets: Pursia (Cat, American Shorthair, 16 yrs, 9 lbs); Kimba (Cat, American Shorthair, 3 yrs, 12 lbs); Zuri, (Cat, American Shorthair, 3 yrs, 13 lbs)

Q. Hi PetRelocation,

We plan to move to the South of France (near Montpellier) this fall with our three cats. We'll probably fly out of Seattle or possibly San Francisco. Would it be better to fly direct to Paris, then drive to South, rather than taking two separate flights?

Pursia is getting old and a bit frail. We are worried that the trip will be to hard on her. Also, just juggling 2-3 cats plus all our other luggage will be a challenge as well as the fact that there are no direct flights from the US West coast to the South of France.

Thanks,
Karen

Pet: Casper (Pekingese, male, 5 years old, 13kg)

Q. Hi PetRelocation,

We have moved to Australia and are eager to now bring our pet Pekingese here. How safe will it be for him to travel in cargo for the entire flight of around 9 hours? Which airlines can we use, as Malaysian Airlines do not take snub-nosed dogs? Also, he is aggressive to strangers and other dogs -- will this be an issue?

We appreciate your kind assistance and thank you in advance.

Regards,
Judy
