PAP - Traveling to Haiti with Animals

JetBlue will accept pets (small dogs and cats) for transportation to Haiti. Service and emotional support animals are allowed with the proper documentation.

Cats and dogs must be accompanied by:

  • A Veterinary Health Certificate for Haiti, issued not more than 7 days prior to arrival to Haiti
    • The document must be issued and endorsed by a veterinarian employed full time by the government of the country of origin (e.g. USDA, Canadian Food Inspection Agency, DEFRA). The document may be filled out and signed by a licensed veterinarian, but must also be endorsed by a government veterinarian.
    • The Official Health Certificate is valid for a period of 14 days only. If you are not traveling from either of these countries, the Governing Authority of your country responsible for the import and export of animals should endorse the forms. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included for endorsement.
  • Additional rabies vaccination certificate for dogs more than three months old issued not less than 21 days and not more than 11 months prior to arrival
  • Possession of required documents does not guarantee entry. All animals and documents are subject to examination at the port of entry by an approved inspector. Should the animal fail to meet entry requirements, the Director of Agriculture, or other governing agency may, at his discretion and at the expense of the customer, order that the animal be refused entry and returned immediately.
  • All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the port of entry to Haiti. If the dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at the customer’s expense.

The Director of Agriculture reserves the right to refuse entry of any animal for any reason.

Service Animals – In addition to the requirements above for all animals, Service Animals shall have identifiers such as identification cards, other written documentation, and presence of harnesses, tags or “the credible verbal assurances of a qualified individual with a disability using the animal”.

NOTE: Documentation is not required as a condition for permitting an individual to travel with his or her service animal in the cabin unless a customer’s verbal assurance is not credible.

Emotional Support/Psychiatric Service Animals – require current documentation (i.e., not more than one year old) on letterhead from a licensed mental health professional stating:

  • the customer has a mental health-related disability
  • that having the animal accompany the customer is necessary to the customer’s mental health or treatment
  • that the individual providing the assessment of the customer is a licensed mental health professional and the customer is under his or her professional care
  • the date and type of the mental health professional’s license and the state or other jurisdiction in which it was issued.

NOTE: Service Animals that are not trained or are in training will not be transported.
