Traveling with Minna


Below is everything I did in order to take Minna to Hong Kong, hope it will help anyone who wants to travel with pet(s).

A month before departure:
Took Minna to vet for vaccination, must have anti-rabies vaccination more than 30 days but less than one year before departure. Also require vaccination for Feline Panleucopaenia and Feline Respiratory Disease Complex. (Cost: approx. $100 USD)

Three weeks before departure:
Applied Special Permit for the importation of animal into Hong Kong. (Cost: approx. $60 USD)
Two weeks before departure:
Took Minna to vet again for Animal Health Certificate and Vaccination Certificate. (Cost: approx. $100 USD)
Had USDA to certify both Animal Health Certificate and Vaccination Certificate. (Cost: approx. $25 USD)
Faxed all documents to airline company.

Departure day:
Cost for shipping Minna: approx. $300 USD
Airline company needed all documents above for Minna, my air ticket and two types of I.D. They will prepare an airline certificate (captain's affidavit) for custom in Hong Kong.
