Pets and Moving Back
One of the practical questions that seems to be often asked is whether or not pets are allowed to be brought into Jamaica.
Apparently, our research is showing that only cats and dogs from the U.K. are allowed to be brought in, without undergoing a 6 month quarantine. They only need to undergo a 14 day quarantine.
This not good news to those who want to move to Jamaica with pets, from parts of the world outside the U.K. For some, it's a deal breaker, as these rules will prevent them from coming to Jamaica in the short term, as they are unwilling to leave their pets behind.
I spoke to a friend of mine who is a veterinarian here in Jamaica to verify the above facts. Here is a link from Expat Exchange to view a discussion on the topic: http://www.expatexchange.com/expat/index.cfm?frmid=233&forumid=0&dbname=ee&tpcid=3334162&shared=N
