Taking a Pet Overseas
Many countries have strict health, quarantine, agriculture, wildlife, and customs requirements or prohibitions for pets. If you decide to take your pet abroad, check with the embassies of the countries you will be going to for any specific requirements they may have.
In a crisis, if we evacuate U.S. citizens from a danger area on chartered or military aircraft or ships, we do not normally accept pets except for service animals. You will need to make alternate arrangements for other pets.
