Importing country requirements
It is the exporter's responsibility to ensure that the animal meets the importing country requirements.
Information about the process required to import animals into the Republic of the Philippines (Philippines) is available from the
Embassy of the Philippines.
An import permit is required and is available from:
- National Veterinary Quarantine Services (NVQS)
Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI)
Visayas Avenue, Diliman
- 920-0816, 925-4343
An application form is available on the
Embassy website. The Philippines' authority has indicated that applications for Sanitary and Phytosanitary Import Clearance (SPSIC) should be made by the client-applicant online at
InterCommerce Network Services (INS), the authorised service provider.
- Where an importing country issues an import permit, the exporter must ensure the animal meets any requirements in the permit.
As importing country health requirements may change without advice to the Department you should check the import permit and/or the country's website carefully at the time of preparation for export.
A valid health certificate from the country of origin will be required. Any requirements on the import permit must be met.
