Importing Pets into Taiwan (Paperwork, Quarantine, etc.)

Postby Battlepanda » 12 Feb 2006, 09:51

Jess,
sorry for the late reply. It took me a while to navigate this since my vet was only able to give me the link to the confusing official website I had already. The link to the official Taiwanese quarentine website is <a href="http://www.baphiq.gov.tw/en/index.asp">here</a>.

Upon emailing those folks though, they emailed me some forms and things as well as extra info. If you give me your email, I can forward the forms as well as a translation of their email.

Also, I am starting a "pets into Taiwan" pbwiki which can be found <a href="http://petsintotaiwan.pbwiki.com/">here</a>. It is still very much under construction, though eventually all the links and forms will be up there.

Sure...just be aware that it's really rough right now...once I actually succeed in importing my dog, I'll tighten everything up and make sure it's up to date.

my dog

Postby carole » 01 Mar 2006, 08:05

Can anyone help me bring in my Taiwanese dog. We are moving back to Taiwan and I desparately don't want to leave my 5 year old dog behind- we are very attatched to one another. Currently we are in China and the whole process isn't looking good for her.

Taking your pets from Taiwan to South Africa

Postby havilina » 01 Mar 2006, 21:48

For those South Africans who have pets (or those who are thinking about adopting pets), you might find the following link helpful. It deals with the Importation Procedures for SA.

Oh god. I don't know why I ever had the hubris to presume I can write a guide to getting pets into Taiwan. I have run into so much trouble and done things wrong so many times.

They are exacting, people. They are exacting bureaucratic monkies, those quarentine people.

They "reminded" me upon issuing the import permit that, in addition to all the documents I used to obtain the import permit, I also needed a health certificate issued by the USDA. This left me a week to get this done. My vet's assistance mailed the permit to the wrong address, so I ended up having to drive 2 hours to get the certificate stamped in person.

Some six sense told me I should scan the docs over to the quarentine people to see if everything is correct. Sure enough...something was wrong. My vet have neglected to indicate that my dog is female on the certificate, thus engendering the whole thing void. But...but...but...I asked the woman on the phone...isn't it enough that my pet is identified by her unique microchip number? No, she patiently explained. It's all there in the instructions that came along with my import permit. Haven't I read it? The age, sex, breed AND chip number has all got to be on the form itself.

So now I have a 4 hour round trip drive to the USDA office (plus probably another 76 dollars poorer in fees) because my vet forgot to put "F" on the certificate. (Yes, yes. My fault. I didn't double check).

I hate bureaucracy. I hate it with a passion. I can't blame anyone but myself for being non-detail-orientated and sloppy though.

I understand that it is not possible for a dog to come from PRC to ROC. I'd like to be wrong. :(

Which quarantine facility is best? Which vet is best?

Postby kittykat » 14 Apr 2007, 07:34

I am arriving via CKS and will be living in Hsinchu. Which quarantine facility should I request? Is it true the Taichung facility is superior?

Can anyone recommend an excellent veterinarian (preferably in the Hsinchu area)? By excellent, I mean outstanding credentials, 7+ years of experience, dedicated to animal welfare (including demonstrated commitment to rescuing and rehabilitating animals) and praised by her/his clients.

Thank you!!
