Notify the post that you will be bringing a pet and what kind.
For the general public traveling outside the United States with pets:
Call the appropriate embassy in Washington, DC to confirm the entry requirements for the country you are moving to. Some embassies will provide forms printed in English and in the host language for your veterinarian to complete. Some countries do not permit importation or have long quarantine requirements .
Check the requirements to see how close to departure the required veterinarian examination, shots, and tests must be scheduled.
Arrange with your veterinarian for required shots and certificates within the specified time period.(Even though not always required, it is recommended that you include shots for distemper and hepatitis).
