China - Taking Your Pets
To import a pet you need to provide quarantine officers with:
- A vaccination certificate (or several, depending on the animal), confirming that all vaccinations are up to date and that the pet has received these within 30 days of departure.
- An international Health Certificate, issued by a veterinarian in your country of origin within 30 days of departure.
For cats, certificates are required for Feline Panleucopania and Feline Respiratory Disease, and the pet must be vaccinated against Enteritis (E3) within 12 months of arrival into China.
The fee for importing a cat or small dog into China is 600 RMB (roughly US$70), more for large dogs.
It is possible to obtain some pet food, medicines and equipment in China, but availability is limited, so it is best to bring or order a supply from home. Veterinarian services are available in the cities.
