"Green Banner" Country

Accredited Veterinarians can submit health certificates for USDA APHIS endorsement electronically through VEHCS (Veterinary Export Health Certification System). 

Plus, this country accepts USDA APHIS digital endorsement. This means the final, endorsed health certificate that travels with the animal(s) can be printed out directly from VEHCS and does NOT have to be mailed back to you.

Before going to VEHCS: Scroll below this banner to view animal-specific requirements.

To process some health certificates, VEHCS may need the Accredited Veterinarian to upload the completed fillable PDF version found in the requirements section of this page. Either save a copy of the PDF below, or return to this page for the health certificate, if prompted by VEHCS.
