Q: I was wondering if I can take my pet with me to Trinidad?

A: According to the High Commission for the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, dogs and cats from Canada must undergo a period of six months quarantine in the Government owned dog and Cat Quarantine Station prior to their release.

You'll have to apply for quarantine space in advance and the import permit will only be issued when space becomes available. There will also be an additional fee of around TT $5.00 per day for each dog/cat on admission to the quarantine station.

Applications for quarantine space must be submitted in writing to: The Chief Veterinary Officer, Animal Health Sub-Division, Ministry of Agriculture Land and Marine Resources, St. Clair Port of Spain Trinidad W.I.

For further inquiries contact the High Commission for the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, 200 First Avenue, Ottawa, ON, K1S 2G6 or phone 613-232-2418 or visit them online at www.ttmissions.com.
