Pet Import Regulations in India



Pet relocation to India is simple and will require only two things from the pet owner. One is identification and the other is documentation.

Identification will come as a microchip (ISO Standard 11784 or Annex A to ISO standard 11785) on the animal which is the only approved method of identifying pets imported to India. For any other microchips the pet should come with its own scanner attached to its crate.  

There are two documents to be submitted when relocating pets India. One is a Rabies Vaccination (inactivated vaccine) Certificate which is valid one or two years. The certificate should indicate details such as when and where the inoculation was given and how long before it expires. Another document for submission is a Veterinarian's Certificate which should be issued by a local government-accredited veterinarian from the pet's country of origin. This certificate must be issued no earlier than 10 days before shipment and must prove that the animal is free from symptoms of Distemper, Rabies, Leishmaoiasis, Leptospirosis, Tuberculosis and Aujossky's disease. A third document to be submitted is the NOC or No Objection Certificate which will serve as a tentative permit for the animals' entry into India. This can be secured from a company offering pet relocation service to India. 

Pet transport can be hassle-free when done with the assistance of experts. There are many companies offering services for international pet relocation to India and online is a great place to start searching.
