Animal quarantine

What Is Animal Quarantine

Animal quarantine is a necessary practice in every country. The government of India strictly regulates the import/export of livestock and denies entry to any diseased animal. Animal quarantine is prescribed to prevent the spread of any exotic or zoonotic disease an animal may be carrying.

Why is Animal Quarantine Required

The government denies entry to infectious livestock, no exceptions. The health of human beings is central to the socio-economic development of a country, and cannot be risked. We care deeply about your pet, so we ensure that all the necessary documentation for your pet is accounted for. A hassle-free experience can only be ensured when all the legal formalities are completed.

AQCS stands for ‘Animal Quarantine & Certification Services’. The AQCS looks into the internationally accepted certification for livestock and animals, so that any animal being exported to another country complies with their respective health requirement, as well as those specified in the International Zoo- Sanitary Code. Animal quarantine can last anywhere from 21 days to 6 months, depending on the disease an animal is suspected of carrying, and the regulations of the importing country.

A document known as the No Objection Certificate (NOC) is required when a pet is transferred. In order to obtain this document, a quarantine period is involved to ensure your pet is healthy and isn’t carrying any infectious diseases. This process to obtain this certificate is labor-intensive, as there are many legal requirements to be fulfilled. The NOC is provided by the country of origin, stating that the animal is free of any contagious disease, such as rabies, canine distemper, or a viral infection.

An import license is required to import pets for a short period (tourist visa) or for a change in ownership. This license can be obtained through the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT). A quarantine period of 30-days in the country of origin is prescribed for pets entering India due to a change in ownership.
