Pet Relocation and Transportation to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou

Carried as excess baggage (One passport for one pet only)

  1. A Rabies Vaccination Record is required by local officials for pet importation into China (this should also include proof of vaccination against cat flu and feline encephalitis). This record can probably be issued by your own veterinarian. Rabies vaccination must be given not less than 30 days before your departure to China and no more than 1 year prior to entry to China. The rabies certificate should be separate from the vaccination book and will be retained by the Chinese officials.
  2. An international health certificate is needed by the Chinese government upon arrival. There is no particular form for this, but just a general confirmation from your veterinarian that your pet is in good health. This certificate will be verified and stamped by the Chinese officials upon arrival. The health certificate must be dated less than 14 days prior to arrival in China. The form should include name of pet, type of bed (dog/cat and breed), age, weight (and height for dogs), gender, plus a statement that the pet is vaccinated and in good health.
  3. The above two documents, the owner’s passport copy, arrival date and flight No. should be faxed or e-mailed to the PETSVENTURA PET RELOCATION SOLUTIONS®, in advance and/or the originals carried by the passenger (originals must be carried no matter if being handled by an agent or personally).
  4. Be sure to check with your airlines as well about what rates they will charge and what rules they have for the carriage of pets. You must use an airline-approved pet carrier. Some airlines allow small pets to travel with you in the cabin, some will only allow pet transport in their cargo area and some airlines do not transport pets at all. It is recommended to use a Western Airline if possible to ensure that the conditions in the cargo hold are suitable. Also check for airline rates for pet transport as these vary from country to country.
  5. If the pet's arrival is after 6:30pm, it is NOT RECOMMENDED to transport the animal as excess baggage. If this occurs, additional fees will apply and your pet will have to stay at the airport overnight as the latest Inspection and Quarantine Bureau shuttle bus to the quarantine facility leaves Shanghai airport at 7:30pm Monday to Friday. If the pet arrives on a Saturdays, Sunday or public holiday, a pet relocation can handle the transport from the airport to the quarantine facility, but client must provide notification 3 days prior to arrival and pay additional fees. Private individuals cannot transport the animal from the airport to the quarantine facility.
  6. As of 13 February 2006, there is 7-day quarantine at the quarantine station with release of the pet after this time if all tests show negative results. The pet will have a home quarantine for the remaining 23 days for a total quarantine period of 30 days. 

 
    The owner's name in the Vaccination Record and Health Certificate must be as the same as his/her legal name in their passport.

    Shipped as air cargo (one passport for one pet only)

    Individuals are not allowed to process the paperwork necessary in the customs department of Shanghai airport and a pet relocation agent is required for at least this part of the import process.
    1. A Rabies Vaccination Record is required by local officials for pet importation into China. This record can probably be issued by your own veterinarian. Rabies vaccination must be given not less than 30 days before your departure to China and no more than 1 year prior to entry to China.

    3. When shipping as air cargo, a pet relocation copy (or PETSVENTURA PET RELOCATION SOLUTIONS®, agent) MUST be used. Private individuals cannot clear their pets through cargo customs. An Air Waybill is needed to clear customs. Usually the airlines used to transport the pet will require custom’s approval 3-4 days before the departure date. They will then allow the pet clearance approval from the port of origin. Thus, the pet owner should notify the pet relocation company about the Air Waybill No. as soon as the flight is booked.
    4. The consignee must bear a passport with a valid Chinese visa and an entry record within the proceeding 2 weeks from the country that the pets are departing from. PETSVENTURA PET RELOCATION SOLUTIONS® company will collect the consignee’s passport one day prior to the pet’s arrival date. (Please take note that the consignee must arrive into Shanghai before the pet’s arrival and the passport will be returned on the pet’s arrival date or the following day.)
