  • Montserrat via Antigua

    The British West Indian island of Montserrat requires dogs arriving from Canada to have a health certificate and to spend three months in "house" quarantine at the their owners residence. The residence must be inspected and approved in advance by a government official. Air Canada allows a teacup poodle to travel in the cabin, so far this sounds easy.

    However there are no direct flights to Montserrat. One must fly to neighbouring Antigua and then catch a next day flight or ferry. Antigua has very formal animal importation requirements with microchipping, rabies tests at a US laboratory, etc. Has anyone been able to discover if animals that are simply 'in transit' may avoid all these Antiguan regulations? Any advice much appreciated.

    Becuase you are overnighting in Antigua you are entering the country with your pet and are not transiting the country. Transiting means that you merely change from one plane to another and do not go through immigration.
