Bringing pets into St Maarten

St Maarten does not quarantine healthy pets. However, your pet cat or dog must be vaccinated for rabies at least 30 days but not more than 12 months prior to entry.

About 14 days or less before entering St Maarten, have your veterinarian complete the St Maarten Veterinary Certificate. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included.

Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet may be refused entry and the relevant authority in consultation with an authorised veterinarian can decide to return the pet home, or place the pet in quarantine at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for pet, or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be arranged.

All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibian, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of St Maarten.

Although St Maarten does not require an ISO pet microchip, it is advisable to microchip your pet prior to travelling.
