Pet passports now approved for travel between The Turks and Caicos and Canada

Providenciales, 18 Dec 2014 – The country’s Chief Veterinarian, Dr. Mark Butler explained that the cost is $200 and the passports make travel more efficient. “We have a number of Canadian residents who live at least part of the yea here … our new pet passports offer our many frequent flyers, whether TCI residents or visitors, an easier and less expensive means of proving their animal’s health to the authorities in each country.” The passport offers pets and their owners’ unlimited travel between the two countries over a year for that $200 fee.

Owners are also required to provide 48 hours’ notice of intention to travel to the TCI Animal Health Service before they can use the pet passport. It is hoped the US will agree to similar terms; Dr. Butler said “negotiations are currently also underway with the US Department of Agriculture…”
