Relocating Pets to Cuba
Cuba, officially the Republic of Cuba, is a long, thin island located in the Caribbean and known for its colourful culture, idyllic beaches, and lush forests. It is one of the most beautiful and ideal places for vacations. While the beaches, stunning geographical location, high literacy rate and breath-taking landscapes is something that attracts a lot of tourists, it is also important to note that Cuba is a pet friendly country.
Cuba has a lot of pet friendly beaches, hotels, restaurants etc which makes it easier for people to travel and have a good time with their pets. While travelling with pets, it is important to keep the following things in mind-
- The first step is to microchip your pet with a 15-digit ISO compliant pet microchip.
- While a rabies titer test is not mandatory in Cuba, all pets must be vaccinated against rabies at least 30 days prior to entering the country.
- The veterinary health certificate should be completed and endorsed by a licensed vet before travelling to Cuba.
- All Pets must enter Cuba via José Martí International Airport in Havana.
- All pets must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the entry airport.
- While it is not mandatory to have a ticks and tapeworm treatment, it is recommended due to limited availability of these products in the country.
- Cuba does not have a list of banned breeds.
