Due to its spiritual offerings, India continues to grow in popularity. Those headed to India on vacation should have no problem bringing your cat or dog into the country for a brief stay, according to India Pet Entry Regulations. The country does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the requirements below:
Your pet cat or dog must be vaccinated for rabies at least 30 days but not more than 12 months prior to entry into the country.
No more than 10 days prior to travel, a USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must complete the India Veterinary Certificate for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are not traveling from either of these countries, the Governing Authority of your country should endorse the forms. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included.
Personal pets being brought to India for short periods of time such as on a vacation DO NOT require the endorsement of the India Consulate.
India allows you to bring in one pet per visitor. Your pet must enter India either as checked baggage or manifested cargo.
You must obtain a NO OBJECTION CERTIFICATE from the quarantine center in India.
