Re: Dog to the Bahamas

When we cleared at West End a couple of years ago with a big black dog on deck they never even mentioned it. Neither did we:-))

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.

Re: Dog to the Bahamas

I've had the pet permit take up to 8 weeks - plan ahead! I've always had a health certificate from a US vet, dated within a few weeks of arrival. Customs and immigration came aboard in Treasure Cay, Abacos. No expectation that we would take the animals to a Bahamian vet within 48 hours. This would be quite difficult, because in most of the places you can check in, there is no vet.

I was wondering when someone was going to point this out. I read the requirement on noonsite and take it to mean exactly what it said. You have 48 hours to present the certificate once you arrive. The rabies vaccine was date specific but I read no requirement for the VHC to be dated within 48 hours of departure so I'm not sure where that idea came from. Am I missing something here?

Re: Dog to the Bahamas

umm, it all really depends. I wonder if there is anyone who was not allowed to bring their dog in because they didn't have a VHC? Because as long as you pay the money, they don't care was our impression.
