International Travel Certificates at Bond Vet
Traveling abroad with your pet?
If you're planning to travel internationally with your pet, it's important to be aware of the specific requirements and regulations that apply to your destination(s). At Bond Travel, our team of experienced travel nurses and accredited veterinarians can help you navigate the complex process of international pet travel.
It's important to keep in mind that international pet travel can be unpredictable, and unexpected delays or complications can occur. Please note that traveling with your pet internationally involves a degree of uncertainty.
Bond requires that you complete a travel inquiry at least 100 days prior to your anticipated international travel. Once the inquiry is completed and you are in communication with a Bond Vet Travel Agent, they will schedule your appointments for the appropriate timeframe. As a general guide, you will need to visit a Bond clinic for your examination by a USDA-certified veterinarian no more than 10 days before your departure date for your pet's travel certificate.
How It Works
After submitting an inquiry, you will receive an email that provides additional instructions and information about Bond’s process for travel certificates. Please review this email carefully and reply back so that our Travel Agents can begin your documentation.
The Bond Vet Travel Agent will review your request and send back an email to let you know whether the Travel Agent has received all necessary information to issue your certificate or needs more information. Once the Travel Agent has all necessary information, the Travel Agent will reach out to schedule your in-person appointment and collect a non-refundable $100 deposit to be applied to the costs of your travel appointment. Please reply back with your preferred clinic and appointment date and time so that our Travel Agents can schedule your in-person appointment.
Your Travel Agent will send an order confirmation listing the location, date and time of your upcoming in-person appointment and confirming your destination, your pet’s species and whether your pet will travel in cabin or in cargo.
Meet with an USDA-accredited veterinarian: During your appointment, our USDA-accredited veterinarian will perform the USDA Exam and complete all required documentation
Bond will ship your required documents to the USDA for endorsement.
Once the USDA has completed this process, they will either email or mail them to you (depending on the requirements of your destination).
Bon Voyage: Enjoy your trip with your furry companion!
