Bringing pets into Turks & Caicos Island

There are no restrictions on bringing domestic pets into the Turks & Caicos Islands from a rabies free country such as the United Kingdom. Pets entering from countries with a low incidence of rabies such as the United States and Canada require additional documentation.

Your pet must be microchipped with a 15 digit ISO 11784 compliant pet microchip. If your pet's microchip is not ISO 11784/11785 compliant, you can bring your own microchip scanner.

Your pet must be vaccinated at given intervals prior to travel, and given a Blood Titer Test 1 month after the second rabies vaccination. Your veterinarian then completes the proper Turks & Caicos International Health Certificate for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if travelling from the United States or Canada. If you are travelling from another country, the Governmental Authority should endorse the forms for you. A copy of the Rabies Certificate and Blood Titer Test results should also be included.

You may not bring certain breeds into the country which are considered dangerous: any breed of bulldogs, mastiffs or pit bulls.

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 Turks & Caicos Islands.
