Paperwork and Veterinary Requirements

It’s best to have 0x Cargo or an equally qualified IPATA agent help guide and plan your pet’s pre-move preparations. For now, the following information serves as a guide in order to prepare your pet to enter China.


Quarantine is necessary if your pet does not completely fulfill the following health and veterinary requirements. This may be considered if your pet cannot wait to compete the long rabies titer test before needing to depart.

Health/Veterinary Requirements

Requires 2-3 months of preparation to enter without quarantine.


Must be administered before any other veterinary procedures.

  • Dogs and cats must be identifiable by microchip. There are no exceptions to this rule.

  • The microchip should be ISO compliant and 15 digits long.If your pet does not have an ISO compliant chip, your pet will have to travel with a microchip reader attached to the crate. Alternatively, your vet can implant a new ISO compliant chip in addition to the existing non-ISO compatible chip.
    After implanting the chip, your pet will have to be revaccinated in order for the new vaccination to be valid.


The latest vaccination must be valid at time of export.

  • Dogs and Cats: 2 subsequent Rabies vaccinations done prior to Rabies titer blood testing.

Blood tests (optional)

To be completed within 1 year of entry into China.

  • Rabies titer blood testing takes about 4 weeks to process and is valid for entry into China for 12 months.

Paperwork Requirements

Processed about 14 days prior to arrival.

Health Examination for Health Certificate

Must be conducted within 14 days of arrival.

  • At this point in your pet’s move, one of our pet shipping specialists will pre-complete the correct health certificate and email it to your veterinarian for signature at the physical appointment. We provide all documents and are available to answer any questions and troubleshoot issues that may arise.

USDA Endorsement

Must be completed before departure

  • After your pet has been examined by your veterinarian and the health certificate has been completed and signed, the health certificate must be submitted to the USDA office to be endorsed.0x Cargo will coordinate this process with your doctor.

  • If a military veterinarian completes your pet’s health certificate, the USDA endorsement is not needed. A military veterinarian is a Veterinary Corps Officer or civilian GS-0701 series government veterinarian employed by the U.S Army Veterinary Service.

The requirements above for moving your pet to Beijing, China can also be found on USDA’s website. However, it has less information than what is absolutely necessary to bring your pet to China Smoothly. Transcontinental Pet Movers LLC has a specialist team for pets going to China. Team members are able to converse in Mandarin and are also on the wechat platform.

Airport Information
