Veterinary Services Dog Import Record: Dog(s) from an ASF
Affected Country
Documentation for dogs imported for resale into the United States from countries with
African swine fever must be completed and submitted to APHIS by uploading to eFile within
2 business days following the dog(s)’ arrival.
Dear Importer:
Thank you for your recent import permit application requesting permission from the U.S. Department
of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to import dog(s) for resale into the
United States. Dogs for resale include any transfer of ownership or control of an imported dog at least
6 months of age to another person, for more than de minimis consideration. Your application,
submitted to APHIS’ Animal Care program, indicates the dog(s) are coming from a country affected by
African swine fever (ASF). As a result, you must meet Animal Care’s requirements along with the
requirements established by APHIS’ Veterinary Services program to prevent the introduction of disease
(hyperlink to VS requirements web page). If your import permit application is approved, then when
your permit is issued, you will receive an email to remind you about Veterinary Services’ requirements.
To comply with Veterinary Services’ requirements, the shipment of dog(s) must meet the following
conditions:
 The dog(s) and their shipping crate/container must be free of dirt, wood shavings, hay, straw,
or any other organic/natural bedding material.
 All bedding that accompanies the dog(s) during transit must be properly disposed of at the U.S.
post-entry point(s) of concentration.
 Each dog must have an ISO compliant microchip implanted, and the individual microchip
number must be verified immediately before each animal is bathed.
 Each dog must be bathed at the U.S. post-entry point(s) of concentration within 2 calendar days
of arrival in the United States. Bathing must be documented in Part 2 of the attached
Veterinary Services Dog Import Record.
The attached “Veterinary Services Dog Import Record” must be completed and submitted within 2
business days of the dog(s)’ entry into the United States. You will submit this document by uploading
it to the “Notes and Attachments” section of the import permit’s authorization in your eFile account.
This is the same section of the authorization where the import permit is located.
If you have any questions about Veterinary Services’ requirements, please contact the VS Live Animal
Import Team before the dog(s) leave the country of origin.
