Bringing a Pet to India
I'm traveling to India in a couple of weeks. I have a puppy about 5 months old. We can't leave him back in Hong Kong, so we'll have to bring him with us to the motherland (India).
What are the customs procedures for bringing a pet? As we all know our country's customs is the one of the worst. My port on entry would be Mumbai if that makes any difference.
Also what would be the procedure also when leaving Mumbai, as it might be different.
Any direct or indirect (leads/contacts for info) help would be greatly appreciated!

Chennai. It takes about 5-7 days and has to be obtained through your agent. Documents required are Vaccination details, Government issued veterinary certificate from the exporting country, flight details. Your agent should deposit this NOC at the arrival airport before you board your flight. You will get your copy by mail/fax.
Some links for info:-
The government policy site.

do you really wanna put your little puppy through that much of a hassle. it will probably have to be sedated when its on the flight and it will be in the cargo hold. i would never put my dog through all that.
please try and think of an alternative.

I am sure they have special ways to do it. And most people who travel with pets on any vacation they take looking for pet friendly hotels, etc are a boost of confidence to go through this without thinking about the negatives.
