Traveling to Grenada with Pets
In order to bring a dog or cat to Grenada, students need clearance from the Veterinary General. They must contact the Department of Veterinary and Livestock in Grenada, and obtain a permit to import a dog or cat.* Students must also obtain a certificate of health from their veterinarian a few days before arriving in Grenada to ensure that the pet has all his/her shots and is in good health. Other rules and regulations may be in effect both in Grenada and within the individual airlines. All institutions and agencies should be contacted before travel arrangements are made.
*Sample pet permit documents and additional information are available on the member’s center of the University website.
