Domestic Animals

Importing pets into the Cayman Islands can be a lengthy process. All domestic dogs and cats must have an Import certificate issued by the Cayman Islands Department of Agriculture (DOA).

To receive the latest information and application forms, we suggest you contact the Chief Agricultural and Veterinary Officer at (345) 947 3090 or by fax at (345) 947 6501 or by email at ciagriculture@gov.ky.

A second consideration is the airline on which you will be travelling into the Islands. IATA is an excellent resource for researching International pet travel; however, be certain to also contact each airline directly as some will not transport animals during the summer months due to the high heat temperatures in the hold.
