Why Should I Hire a Pet Shipper For International Pet Travel?


When travelling overseas, it is vital to hire a professional pet shipper to avoid things like quarantine and excess expenses.

All international destinations have strict guidelines surrounding the entry of pets.  In most cases, travel preparations including veterinary treatments or obtaining permits may need to start months before departure.  With adequate preparation time, quarantine in most destinations can be completely eliminated, or significantly reduced.

Whether you are travelling from the USA or back to the USA, an experienced pet shipper can make all the difference

With a huge network of experts throughout the USA and overseas, Airpets America can care for your furry friends throughout the world.

International Travel Service options include;

  • Advice and “move coordination”
  • Veterinary advice and treatments
  • Veterinary & travel document compliance reviews
  • Pickup from home, a friend, relative or boarding kennel at origin
  • Travel crate
  • Delivery to airport and airline check-in
  • Flight/s
  • Comfort Stopovers (if required)
  • Boarding & Kenneling
  • Permits
  • Quarantine (if required)
  • Collection from airport
  • Customs clearance
  • Delivery to new home, friend, relative or boarding kennel at destination
  • Dedication and commitment to the welfare of your furry friends!


Advance-preparation is the key.  Speak to a Pet Consultant to discuss your relocation needs, and together we can structure a customized travel program that will benefit you and your pet.
