Which to choose?
If you are relocating to the US, understanding how freight works can save time, money and worry. Air will be more expensive in most cases and has a higher CO² footprint. Making the right choice of transport will depend on your requirements and resources, choosing the right provider is also important.
Bringing your Pet to the US
The import of all animals and birds into the US is subject to health, quarantine, agriculture, wildlife and customs regulations. Pets, particularly dogs, cats and turtles, must be examined at the first port of entry for possible evidence of disease that can be transmitted to humans. Pets excluded from entry must be re-exported or destroyed.
What do if you’re refused to enter the US
If you arrive in the US with a visa and an immigration official refuses you entry, you can insist on a review of your case before a judge. However, if you travel to the US as a visitor under the visa waiver program, you ‘waive any rights to a review or appeal of an immigration officer’s determination as to your admissibility, or to contest any action in deportation’.
