Rabies Vaccinations

Rabies vaccinations must be up-to-date.  You will need to have the two original rabies vaccination certificates, with the actual veterinarian signature in ink.  Certificates must have the vaccine name, lot or serial number, booster interval, vaccination date and vaccine lot expiration date listed.

The vaccinations must be done more than 30 days apart, and the most recent rabies vaccination must be long enough (1-year or 3-year booster interval) to cover your pet through the at-home quarantine waiting period and up until your pet arrives in Hawaii.  It cannot be less than 90 days before your pet’s arrival in Hawaii.

Planning and scheduling dates accordingly is critical to a successful At-Airport-Release for you pet.  Check out our DIY Guide.  It’s full of tips and tools to help keep your pet’s travel plans on track.
