  • Transiting dog through Paris to USA

    Hi all,

    I live in Burkina Faso (Africa) and adopted a local mutt as a puppy. She's now one year old, has all her vaccinations, and I'd like to take her with me to the States for a three-month stay before returning to Burkina.

    We fly in two months - at the beginning of November - and while it's no problem to get all the documentation needed for her to enter the USA, we transit through Paris (Charles de Gualle). Entry regulations for dogs to the EU are much stricter, and require a blood test done three months before departure (which is too late for us).

    So my question is this: Will we be able to transit through Paris with our dog if we have all entry requirements for the US? Or do we also need to have all entry requirements satisfied for Paris/ France? We fly with AirFrance, if that makes any difference...

    Would appreciate hearing anyone's experience. We can't seem to find the answer to this question anywhere!
