Importing country requirements
There is guidance material for the importation of domestic dog /canine semen, embryos and other germplasm not regulated by USDA APHIS Veterinary Services and you should check this.
A valid health certificate issued by an accredited or licensed veterinarian from the exporting country should accompany shipments of non-regulated germplasm for breeding purposes (those not requiring an import permit). This document must state the species of origin of this germplasm to validate that the semen is not sourced from any regulated species.
The species of origin information should be documented on any of the following: manifests, invoices, foreign producer/shipper statements on letterhead or other shipping documents. The documentation should be available for review on shipment arrival at the US port of entry and not be placed inside the shipping container.
State Regulations may apply to the movement of reproductive material into individual States and you should check these.
