- International Pet Shipping
International pet transport, anywhere in the world
Transport any pet, anywhere in the world!
All international destinations (and Hawaii) have very strict rules surrounding the entry of pets. In most cases, international pet shipping preparations including veterinary treatments or obtaining permits may need to start months before departure. With adequate preparation time, quarantine in some destinations can be completely eliminated, or significantly reduced. Whether you are traveling from the USA, back to the USA or between any other countries, Pet Express can make your move easier for you and your pets. With a huge network of expert partners throughout the USA and overseas, Pet Express can care for your furry kids anywhere in the world.

How do I get started with international pet shipping?
Of course, you’ll want to understand whether your destination country will allow you to bring in your pet. Every country has different import requirements, so start by doing a little research to find out more about the process for bringing your pet along. Of course, we can help you with this as well!
Can pets travel on international flights?
Bigger animals, or those airlines that don’t permit in-cabin pets, will fly in the cargo hold in an airline-approved pet carrier or kennel. This is generally very safe for your pet.
