Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Asks Airline Stations for Full Compliance on Animal Import Regulations

25 Nov 2015 1:03 PM | Anonymous

In a letter being provided to all Station Managers at U.S. ports of entry, the CDC states: "In an ongoing effort to avoid undue burden and stress to airlines and pet owners, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is reaching out directly to airlines to promote full compliance with CDC's animal importation regulations."

The letter reviews the CDC's dog and cat importation requirements, a carrier's responsibilities, and, if requirements are not met, possible CDC action (e.g., entry denial and re-export).

The CDC importation requirements apply equally to all dogs, including puppies and service and emotional support animals (ref: http://www.cdc.gov/importation/bringing-an-animal-into-the-united-states/dogs.html).
