Cat travel CH to USA

Hi EF's!

Quick question, can anyone direct me to a thread that explains the permits and certifications needed to travel with a cat from Switzerland to the USA. For example, flying with a passenger on an airline not shipping them with an independent company. I have been reading conflicting information online. Some websites say you need almost nothing and others have a long list.

Re: Cat travel CH to USA

Go to your Vet and ask for all the docs . there is quite a few. You need to have your animal checked by the vet no more than 10 days before departure. You also need to check with your airline that they accept pets on that flight. Kennel etc needs to be right dimensions etc etc

Thats about it. We did it with our dog (in cabin) to the USA. On the way way back the papers needed to be checked by the USDA.

Noone has EVER checked any docs (broght back 2 dogs from the USA and 1x to the USA , but better safe than sorry I guess
