Pets to Bring into Anguilla

Anguilla does not quarantine healthy pets. However, at least six months prior to your arrival on the island, you must file for an Import Permit. For an Import Permit or further enquiries, contact the Anguilla Agricultural Department at (264) 497-2615 or email

Your pet must be vaccinated for rabies more than 30 days but not more than 12 months prior to entry to Anguilla. Anguilla does not honour the two or three years vaccination approved in the United States. Other than the vaccination for rabies, other information that the Anguilla Agricultural Department will require includes:

• name of person travelling with animal;
• country from where travelling;
• breed of dog (or cat);
• health certificate;
• $15 for processing fee.

When entering Anguilla you must supply a Anguilla Veterinary Certificate from your veterinarian dated 10 days or less before your arrival to Anguilla. Although it is not required, a USDA or CFIA licensed veterinarian should complete the form and have it endorsed by the USDA or CFIA, if travelling from the United States or Canada. If you are not travelling from either of these countries, the relevant authority of your country should endorse the forms. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included.

It is a good idea to be prepared with several photocopies of important documents should someone request it for their files.

Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet may be refused entry and the relevant authority in consultation with an authorised veterinarian can decide to return the pet home, or place the pet in quarantine at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for pet, or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be arranged.

All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibian, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.
