For Passengers Traveling with Dogs to the United States

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a notice to temporarily restrictions on the entry of dogs from countries and areas that CDC considers high risk for rabies, and dogs that have been in countries and areas at high risk for rabies in the past 6 months on passenger and cargo flights arriving in the United States on or after July 14, 2021.

For a list of countries and areas classified as at high risk of rabies, see the CDC website, High-Risk Countries for Dog Rabies.

From June 10,2022, part of the regulations has been eased so that dogs from countries and areas classified as at high risk for rabies and dogs that have been in countries and areas at high risk for rabies in the past 6 months will be able to enter the United States in certain circumstances.
