MANIFEST CARGO

Where the pet is booked by Airline cargo. In such a case, it is not necessary for the pet to travel on the same flight.
Note: Only 2 pets (cat/dog) are allowed to travel under one owner’s name irrespective of whether the pet is booked as Accompanied Baggage or as Manifest Cargo into India.

PET TRAVEL

Have-Pet-Will-Travel.jpg

The first thing you need to do when preparing to transport a dog is to make sure he or she is comfortable being in a crate for an extended period of time. If your dog isn’t crate trained, we recommend familiarizing your pup with the kennel by putting treats in the crate and leaving your dog in the crate for the time you are out. This can help ease separation anxiety that may occur, and helps keep your dog calm during what can be a stressful situation.

The exporter (pet owner) is responsible for obtaining the NOC from India, All pets entering into India must be issued a NOC (NO OBJECTION CERTIFICATE) from the ANIMAL QUARANTINE AND CERTIFICATION STATION (AQCS) in India whether accompanied or manifest, prior to landing into India.

People intending on arriving with their pets as accompanied luggage can have an agent apply for this certificate before they enter the country. The NOC can be applied for by mail, fax, or in-person. The NOC document takes about 5 working days to obtain. Documents required prior to obtaining this document, are:

  • All vaccination records of the pet.
  • Government issued veterinary certificate from the exporting country USDA document.
  • Flight details / confirmation of the passenger’s travel into India / Copy of the airway bill Procedural Formalities:
  • No Objection Certificate (NOC) issued by the Quarantine Officer at the Animal Quarantine Station in India.
  • A duplicate copy of the NOC has to be fixed on the crate of the pet during the air travel.
  • Original copy of the NOC has to be produced in India to get the pet released from the customs at the Airport in India.
  • On arrival in India, an appointment with the Quarantine Officer for issue of a temporary Health Certificate on examination of the pet.
  • 30 days thereafter a certificate of health to be obtained from a local veterinarian to be produced at the Animal Quarantine Station. Then, the pet will be issued a permanent certificate of health for his/her stay in India. Having an in-country representative is preferred to get an NOC from the Quarantine officer before arrival and per the Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries (DADF) most of the applicants appoint some in-country representative who works for them.

A TESTIMONIAL FROM GINGER THE CAT

My name is Ginger, and I am a house cat. I am, like all cats, an amazing creature, but I am not tapping out this message on my owner’s computer just to tell you how amazing I am. No, the reason is that I want to give a testimonial about Universal Relocations. I know, cats don’t give testimonials, it’s just not done in the feline world, and if you had told me a few months ago that I’d be giving one, especially to a moving company, I’d have said you’re just another crazy human.
However, sometimes even cats need to give a testimonial, because a company is just that good at delivering superb service, and that’s the case with Universal Relocations.
