Israel - Summary of Requirements for Live Animals

Health certificates for export of live animals to Israel can also be generated through the Veterinary Export Health Certification System (https://pcit.aphis.usda.gov/pcit/). First, complete the fillable PDF health certificate found on this page. Then log on to VEHCS and enter the destination country and commodity to upload the certificate. For optimal quality resolution, it is preferred that the issuing USDA Accredited Veterinarian sign the document using the ADOBE signature options, rather than printing, signing and scanning the certificate.

A printed paper copy of the completed health certificate must accompany each shipment.
