CDC’s dog importation regulations require that dogs be fully immunized against rabies before being imported into the United States. The rabies vaccination must be administered no earlier than 3 months (12 weeks) of age and must have been administered at least 30 days before arrival at a U.S. port of entry. Therefore, the youngest that a puppy may be imported to the United States is 4 months (16 weeks) of age. The only exception is dogs residing in countries and political units considered rabies-free for the importation of dogs into the United States http://www.cdc.gov/animalimportation/rabies-free-countries.html.
CDC’s regulatory requirements for importation of dogs into the United States (http://www.cdc.gov/animalimportation/dogs.html) may allow the importation of inadequately immunized dogs if the dogs are coming from low-risk countries and the importers will be able to comply with the terms of a confinement agreement, which would require confinement of the dogs at a single specified address in the United States until they are fully immunized against rabies.
Dog importers must choose one location where the dog will be confined during the entire confinement period. This is often the importer’s home, but might be a veterinary clinic, kennel, or similar facility. Except for veterinary care, dogs under a confinement agreement may not be moved from the specified confinement location, even if confinement would be continued at the new location.
For us to review your request for a Confinement Agreement, please send the following information and documentation to CDC at CDCAnimalImports@cdc.gov:
1. Name of the final owner of the dog(s) [i.e. the owner who will be responsible for confining the dog]:
