Dog Aboard
 
We intend to cruise from St Maaten to Santa Lucia next March.
doubt: someone knows what immigration is, laws, ... in the Caribbean countries

Greetings,
Mr. A. You may be best to contact each country via e-mail. You should get a response AND most importantly, have it in writing should any "difficulties" arise.

A bit of a pia but doable. The x British territories you'll need microchip, titer, plus advance paperwork. Don't try to show up and bs your way in. The French territories are not a problem. We avoided St Lucia, Dominica and Antiqua area because of the hassle.

Had a transient berth neighbor who routinely traveled to Mexico for the winter. He had a parrot and seemed not to have a problem. Have no clue what paperwork made that possible.

No, the parrot was mostly green, and named Captain Bligh. Never seen the bird caged. Seen in the sailboat's cockpit on a perch.

Just resting after a long squawk, with a very firm grip of the perch.

If you stay away from the British islands it would be easier.

It is not that the French don't care, but rather that French public health authorities are understandable with foreign visitors.

Everyone can do so in their own way, but there are regulations in the French islands which states :
1. Upon arrival, pets - dogs, cats - must be presented at the request of customs authority for documentary checks. You have to justify that your pet fulfill the health conditions - health record with up-to-date vaccination and microchip - established by the Regulation n° 576/2013 dated June/12/2013.
2. The person accompanying must be the owner.

Also be aware that some beaches in French islands have “no dogs” signs, even if there is no much control about that.

You are welcome. Sorry for my post which was very 'formal', I just wanted to draw your attention to the Regulations in order to better meet your needs.

For your convenience, please find here after the link to the Regulation (EU) No*576/2013 of the European Parliament on the non-commercial movement of pet animals, official journal of the European Union in English version :

http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-conte...790376&from=EN

I would like to advise you to save the link or download the PDF just to hold in your digital records, but once again, French authorities are understandable also mostly easy going with foreign visitors.

Enjoy your journey.

Alemao 01-26-2017 12:42 AM

I'll read, thank you
