If all requirements are met (and we always make sure they are), then there is generally no quarantine in Hong Kong, but this depends upon the pet's country of origin. There is no quarantine for pets arriving from the US.

Depending on the place of origin, we can fly your pet directly to Hong Kong, or we can break up the flights with a “rest stop” in the middle, where your pet would be given food, water, and exercise.

We will inform you of your pet's full itinerary before the trip and we will update you as your pet travels to Hong Kong International Airport.

"Thank you again for all of your help. We were thrilled with the service you provided. Left to our own devices, I would have had no idea how to get our little friends over. You made it so painless and easy. From coordinating vaccinations and pick up in the states, to en route updates. Everything was completely seamless. And our cats are doing great. They didn’t take long to adjust at all, so I’m sure they had a good trip. We’re so glad to have them here with us and thank you so much for all your help!"
