  • Horses - March 2013 (pdf 85kb)


It is not necessary to have an import permit for the accredited and federal veterinarians to sign and endorse a health certificate for dogs or cats exported to the Cayman Islands.


Note: For a dog or cat returning to the Cayman Islands (CI) under a CI-issued pet passport listing an acceptable rabies antibody titer result within the past 24 months, APHIS must verify that the titer is current. The pet passport must also be accompanied by a U.S. orgin export health certificate endorsed by APHIS.

*For species not listed, the requirements are not known. However, exporters wanting to ship livestock or germplasm whose requirements are not listed in the IREGS, 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. The Ministry address is as follows:
