Importing country requirements
It is the exporter's responsibility to ensure that the animal meets the importing country requirements.
Contact the Japanese Animal Quarantine Service for information about the process required to import animals into Japan from Australia.
- Where an importing country issues an import permit, the exporter must ensure the animal meets any requirements in the permit.
Dogs and cats should be transported by direct flight/ship from the exporting country (designated region) to Japan.
If transported through Non-designated regions (transit), a ‘seal for the transport cage’ or an ‘additional certificate on transportation (ANNEX)’ is necessary. The numbered tamper-proof seal issued by the Australian Department of Agriculture must be applied by an Australian Government Veterinary Officer and the number on the seal must be referenced on the Australian Government Certificate of Health to Accompany Animals.
