Country''''s to not bring pets to???

I was just wondering about what areas south and east of the bahamas you should not visit with pets. Such as the virgin islands, puerto rico, cuba, jamaica, and all of the other small countries in that area. Where would you say is a not good place to bring my dog and where would good places to bring dogs be. Thank you..

The only areas I know for sure an American can bring his/her State-side pets are: Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Both of these areas have been protectorates of the USA - and for some time.

Your school let you down if they didn''t teach you that Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands (St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas) are part of the USA. Everyone born on those Islands are (by definition) American citizens.

The pets Americans own can travel freely between States and protectorates of the USA, except for State imposed restrictions. For example, it''s illegal to import Prarie Dogs into GA. Also, Hawaii doesn''t allow importation of snakes. There are probably other states that have bans on other pets.

Check with the Department of Agriculture, and the State''s and/or Island''s governement that you plan to visit.

Check the following site for some excellent information on sailing in the Caribbean with a dog. The couple sailed south to Venezuela in a CS 27 with their pug.

I believe that you can bring pets to almost any of the countries of the Carib. and Central America. However, I think that some of the British type countries (Bermuda, etc.) require a quarantine and should probably be avoided. We are planning to bring our dog with us, come this fall. Good Luck
John
