Bringing Pets to Montserrat

Before entry to Montserrat with your pet, you must apply for an Import Certificate. Your pet must be vaccinated for rabies and other diseases at least 30 days but not more than 12 months prior to travel and accompanied by the Montserrat Veterinary Health Certificate issued within 72 hours prior to travel by a competent veterinary authority in the country in which the animal last resided for a period of at least three months immediately prior to transfer to Montserrat. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included.

Your pet wouldn't be permitted entry without the approval of the Veterinary Officer of Montserrat. The Veterinary Officer must be notified of time of arrival and port of entry at least 48 hours prior to arrival time.

Your pet shall be subjected to house quarantine for a period not less than four months or such longer as prescribed. Do note that the quarantine site will be inspected before entry is granted. The address where the pet will be quarantined must be provided in advance so that it may be inspected.

You will grant the Veterinary Department permission for the bimonthly inspection of the animals during the period of quarantine.

Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet may be refused entry and the relevant authority in consultation with an authorised veterinarian can decide to return the pet home, or place the pet in quarantine at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for pet, or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be arranged.

All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibian, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of Montserrat.
