Thailand - Summary of Requirements for Live Animals
Note: The posted protocols for bovine semen and embryos (which is suitable for in vivo and in vitro fertilization) have been previously accepted by Thai border personnel, but no official bilateral agreement is in place between Thailand and the United States; therefore, exporters must ship at their own risk. It is recommended that the health certificate based on the posted protocols for bovine semen and embryos should be approved by Thai officials prior to export.
Thailand does not allow day-old turkey from the U.S.
Note: A bilateral health certificate is currently under review with Thai authorities. At this time, use the requirements as indicated in the posted protocol to create a health certificate and do not use the protocol as an addendum.
For species not listed, the requirements are not known. However, exporters wanting to ship livestock whose requirements are not listed above, should have the interested party (importer/buyer) in the country of destination apply for an Import Permit at the appropriate ministry. This Import Permit will most likely outline the specific requirements.
