Entering China by Air
Pets can arrive in China in the cabin or as checked baggage or air cargo at international airports including but not limited to Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing, Shenzhen and Guangzhou.
Bringing a pet into China is somewhat complicated even if you have the proper veterinary health certificate and immunization record for the pet. We recommend you utilize the services of a company that specializes in the entry process and enter China at a no-quarantine zone. Doing so may alleviate the requirement for 7 days of quarantine.
Foreigners may bring only ONE pet (cat or dog) per adult traveling into China. (two adults - 2 pets) If there are more than one pet per passenger or 2 pets total, the import is considered as commercial, and different rules apply.
