  • korea/usa travel

    ok i have a new puppy who will be 9 weeks old when we travel to the united states. we are currently in south korea. has anyone travelled to korea with a pet before? im so worried about quarantine on both sides. ive never travelled with a pet and know no one who has so i need some advise on how it might go. what would be a reason to quarantine an animal? hes up to date with all shots and the airline says 8 weeks and older which he will be. i cant find anyone to watch him. were going to be gone for almost a month. ive heard quarantine can be pretty long in both countries and the cleanliness of the ones here in korea are horrible. im kinda a worry wort and dont know what to expect so could someone please help me, i dont want to lose my dog for 120 days for something stupid. he cant get a rabies shot yet which i know they understand cant happen for a puppy his age. ive done a lot of searching on the internet but not to much luck

    Both the US and Korea require that pets be vaccinated for rabies and be accompanied by a health certificate. the US will waive this rule regarding vaccinations if the pet is too young to be vaccinated. I am not certain that Korea will waive it and might refuse the pet entry.

    If you need the complete rules and health certificates for either the US or Korea go to [url]www.pettravelstore.com[/url] and then click on Pet Passports - immigration info.

      Short Layover in Japan

      we have a short layover in Japan, do i need a health certificate or anything like that for japan too or just my destination countries? as far as rabies go i read the korean one and it sounds like they will waive it if the dog is too young.

        If your pet is on the same airline into and out of Japan traveling in cargo then nothing else is required. If you are changing airlines it will get complicated as the airlines will not interline. That is they will not transfer animals between airlines.

        If your pet is traveling in the cabin then you do not enter Japan if you remain inside the customs area. If you take your pet for a walk then you have to abide by Japan's rules. Let me know if you have additional questions.
