U.S. Virgin Islands

Pets taken out of the United States are subject upon return, to the same regulations as those entering for the first time. Health certificates may be required for entry into some states, or may be required by airlines for pets. You should check with officials in your state of destination and with your airline prior to your travel date. For additional information, go to

Dog on Boat

Make sure your pets are safe when you're cruising!

Proof of Rabies Vaccination: Dogs must have a certificate showing they have been vaccinated against rabies at least 30 days prior to entry into the United States. These requirements apply equally to service animals such as Seeing Eye dogs.

Cats are not required to have proof of rabies vaccination. However, some states require vaccination of cats for rabies, so it is a good idea to check with state and local health authorities at your final destination.

Restricted Animals: Monkeys and other nonhuman primates may not be imported as pets under any circumstances.

British Virgin Islands

All animals entering the British Virgin Islands, must be declared at Customs. Pets must have current health certificates and vaccinations, especially for rabies.
