Being in Japan, anything cute you ask for will most likely exist in much more animation formats than real life versions. So be prepared for a definite shortage of real cats here. While there are 2 cat-themed amusement parks, one a bit far away from Tokyo and one a bit closer (this stuff is not only reserved for mice), there are also several ...

I spent about half the day yesterday booking my flights. Here is the info I found: Airlines that do not allow in-cabin pets on transatlantic flights: American, Continental, U.S. Airways Airlines that do allow in-cabin pets on transatlantic flights: Delta, Lufthansa, United These are personally verified by calling the airlines, and by taking my dog to ...

The most useful single reference seems to be the "Pets: Cats, Dogs and Ferrets" page of the German Missions in the United States, followed by the USDA's page titled "Taking Your Pet to a Foreign Country". In summary: The microchip must meet standard ISO 11784 or ISO 11785 for identification purposes. The microchip must be implanted before the rabies ...

It appears that the requirements to import a cat to the U.S. may not be too onerous. The guidelines I have found for importing cats to the United States seem to indicate that they must simply be healthy; it appears there may be surprisingly little paperwork involved. I just called the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)'s Animal and Plant Health ...

There is no changes in rules, because the carrier is the same - RZD. About the dog transit rules: You must have all medical information about pet, and you must pay for additional ticket. Also you must honor the sanitary rules in the train you are using. There are two options for this transit - and it depends on size of the dog. For small dogs the rules ...

Every airline will have its own policies, so contact your airline and ask. Airlines regularly transport all sorts of weird creatures, up to and including a herd of elephants, so they'll be happy to advise you how to deal with a tarantula.

It looks like United will, but you would have to double-check as they mention on another page that certain planes and routes cannot accept pets in-cabin. United fees for pets General United information on pets

Not strict at all! When I showed up to the gate with my dog in her soft-sided carrier, the Lufthansa representative didn't even look at it; she only asked me how much it weighed. The carrier I used was the "Bergan Comfort Carrier Soft-Sided Pet Carrier" in the "large" size. It worked perfectly, and fit under the seat without any problem. It also fit ...

Generally speaking, you can go to http://9292.nl/ for any itinerary with public transports in the Netherlands. One useful trick is to enter the postal code (3198 LG according to the P&O website) as point of departure or destination. In the Netherlands, a postal code corresponds to a specific street (and not a town or part of a town), so you can use it to ...

Consider uShip - they allow shipping of pets. Of course the price will depend on the weight of the cats, and other details, so I couldn't price it exactly. From Wiki: Transportation service providers on uShip place competing bids for the right to haul a customer's shipment. The site's reverse auction format aims to reduce the cost of shipping ...

Check out foXnoMad's blog post about it here and here. It's a two part topic and I would quote it here but there's too much so check it out at his blog. The links probably won't die since it's a quite popular blog.

I do not have experience travelling with a dog in cabin during a transatlantic flight. However I did it with a cat. We did it once on a Paris-Montréal with Air France and once on an Ottawa-Frankfurt with Air Canada. In both cases they did check that the weight of the cat + his cage was below the limit fixed by the company, however they did not measure the ...

If you haven't seen this page yet, check this one out. There seem to be few requirements to exporting cockatiels from the US, because as you said, they aren't CITES-listed. At a minimum, you'll have to get a veterinary health report usually within 30 days of travel and you'll need this report if you want to bring the birds back into the US. There are also ...

You've found one link but basically you just didn't link others: APHIS from US Department of Agriculture State of California US Customs and Border Protection (Dogs) US CBP (Pets in General) CDC also has information on what to expect when traveling with pets as well as some information on Foreign Born and a few other sites. Long story short the procedure ...

Since this answer hasn't seen much love here, I'm cross-posting answers from the linked FlyerTalk forum post made by OP. While not an answer specific to Lufthansa, one poster states: Most carriers are extremely lenient with soft side carriers as they can be squeezed in spaces that a hard sided carrier will not fit in. In fact AA even mentions ...

United will only accept Transatlantic pets onboard in the Cargo Hold. United will allow small domestic cats/dogs in cabin but you must be in Economy and seated by a window. No in cabin pets allowed in Business/1st Class, due to inadequate seat configurations for under seat storage[747/757/767/777]. Air France does accept in-cabin pets for crossing the ...

It appears not, according to the British Airways website: Making your booking and taking your flight The DEFRA Export Section (Dogs and Cats) will advise you of the current documentation and vaccination requirements for your destination. We will also require a health certificate from your vet to show that your pet is fit for air travel. ...

BA have a really good page about pets on their site The bad news is that only guide dogs are allowed to be taken on the plane with you. All others must travel in the hold.

There are no specific rules for Germany, general EU rules apply. Your dog needs rabies vaccine and health certificate on official EU form filled in by certified veterinarian no more than 10 days before travel. Whole process described in details in USA Today's "How to Travel With Pets to Europe"

According to the EU Regulation (EC) no 998/2003 : To move a dog, cat or ferret as a pet animal under the conditions laid down in Regulation (EC) no 998/2003, the owner must prove that the animal meets the following criteria: (a) animal of one of the species listed in Annex I to Regulation (EC) no 998/2003; (b) the movement of the animal must be ...

Before the merger, United airlines did allow in-cabin pets on trans-atlantic flights, but Continental did not. I don't know the post-merger situation. The only way to be certain is to call the airline and ask. You will have to pay a fee (probably around $100) to reserve a spot for your pet in the cabin (there is a limit on the total number of in-cabin ...

Seatguru has a copy of what they claim is British Airway's pet policy: Due to the size of the cargo hold, British Airways will only carry smaller animals such as cats, dogs, birds, reptiles and tropical fish. (American pit bulls, Pit bull terriers, Japanese tosas, Fila Brazileiros, Togo Argentinos, bulldogs, Pugs and Pekinese are not accepted). ...

Your friend was correct. The problem is that your list is missing a line When travelling to or returning to the UK from another EU or non-EU listed country your pet needs: a microchip a rabies vaccination (make sure your pet is microchipped first or the vaccination won’t count) a pet passport or official third country veterinary certificate ...

Yours spider is not listed by CITES, so it is not forbidden to bring your pet to one off the member states if you comply with the local import rules. It seems that your friend would need to apply for an import permit: For species not listed, the requirements are not known. However, exporters wanting to ship livestock or germplasm whose requirements are ...

I would ask your vet, or a good vet that specializes in birds. I think that would give you the best options for travelling. For instance, when we travelled with our cats (Denmark to US) our vet recommended the cargo hold, and no drugs. In her option drugs would stress their systems as much as the travel, and the lower temp in the cargo hold would make them ...

Stena Line ferries going to Holland will take them: Yes, you can take your pet on all vessels to Europe without them being subject to quarantine laws on re-entry to the UK. Your pet can travel in the car or in the on board kennels (where available) and you can visit during the crossing, subject to weather conditions and staff discretion. LD ...

United's rules for in-cabin pets are clearly described on their website. In short, yes, you can travel with your cat in the cabin, however it must remain in a carrier underneath the seat in front of you for the entire trip. There is a $125 fee per one-way trip. Alternatively you can send it as cargo, which will cost more but may be more comfortable for ...
