Pets to Bring into US Virgin Islands

The US Virgin Islands does not have any quarantine requirements. Pets travelling to the United States mainland from the USVI also will not require quarantine.

A health certificate from your veterinarian is necessary, it should state that the animal has not been exposed to any communicable diseases, is healthy and when rabies shots are applicable to your pet that the shots are up to date. This certificate should be prepared within 10 days of travel. Rabies shots are considered up to date if they have been administered within the last year, but no longer than one year. Have these documents readily available when you are travelling.

Some animals require import permits, these include but are not limited to birds, ferrets and sugar gliders. You are required to submit an application ($15 fee) to the USVI Department of Agriculture; the application must also be approved by the Division of Fish and Wildlife. The process can take a week to two weeks. Contact the USVI Department of Agriculture at (340) 774-5182, for more information and to request the application forms.

Due to public health and environmental concerns, importing pet snakes into the territory is not allowed.

Contact your air carrier for complete details on what pets they allow, how many, weight/size restrictions, travel restrictions based on time of year/temperature, types of carriers and their general policies regarding transportation of animals.
