Many expats seek to bring their pets with them to the Philippines for their extend stay. The Philippines is supportive of this, and in most cases no quarantine is necessary. The founders of Brealant brought in our own pets, and we have helped a few of our clients as well.
Bringing Pets to the Philippines
Persons who want to bring pets (specifically dogs or cats) to the Philippines must make a request to import a pet or pets addressed to the Bureau of Animal Industry – National Veterinary Quarantine Service (BAI-NVQS) (website http://www.bai.da.gov.ph/)
The request must provide the following information:
Species and breed of each animal
Sex of each animal
Age of each animal
Country of origin
Expected date of arrival in the Philippines
Address, phone number, email address and other contact details of owner (importer)
The request can be emailed to the BAI-NVQS through addresses ( email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org)
The BAI-NVQS will respond with the transmittal of a Veterinary Quarantine Clearance (VQS) and advice on the requirements for the permit to bring the pets into the Philippines, quarantine procedures and fees.
