The application I downloaded from the Ministry of Ag. in the Bahamas says " The animal must be accompanied by a Veterinary Health Certificate presented within 48 hours of arrival in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas to a licensed veterinarian for an examination." I quess my question is can I get a Certificate in Miami within 48 hours of arrival and skip the exam in the Bahamas? Has anyone taken a pet lately?
Thanks in advance, John
The bold part above is the important and accurate requirement ie the certificate must be presented within 48 hours of arriving in the Bahamas and not that the certificate must be less than 48 hours old.
