    They are not listed third countries, nor are they like the US or canada.

    EU stands for European Union. St. Barth is terroritory of France and St Maarten is part of the Netherlands, so both are part of the EU and so both must abide by EU laws and regulations.

You may want to contact customs at St Maarten to see if you need to have clear customs to recheck your pet on the next airline.

    Yes, It is an EU form. Both St. Barth and St. Maarten (Dutch Side) are part of the EU.

    Yes, the larger airlines don't fly into st. Barth which can only accommodate very small 6/10 seater planes.

    Also, someone from another forum sent me this transit form.declaration transit.jpg

If it is traveling in the hold, then the layover should not be more than 2-3 hours. If it is in the cabin, then you will stay in the secure area of the airport until you board your next flight.

    If you are changing airlines in St. Maarten, then you will need to claim and recheck your pet. This will cause your pet to clear customs and enter St. Maarten, and thus abide by its regulations. (http://www.pettravel.com/immigration/SintMaarten.cfm)
