Requirements for Bringing Dog into Bahamas

Hi everyone! We are getting very close to embarking on our 5 month adventure in the Bahamas with our 3 (sometimes 4) kids and our small Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. My question is regarding the requirements for bringing our doggie into the Bahamas. I asked our vet recently and they said that we just needed a health certificate for international travel. Since then my mother-in-law found some verbiage about being required to get some sort of permit from the Bahamian government?? I know cruisers sail with their furry friends all the time so I figured I would get to the bottom of it by asking all of you. What do we need to do to bring our doggie into the Bahamas for about a 5 month stint from March through July of this year? Thanks in advance!! ~Heather (& Cleo)

Hi, Do you or does anyone have a vet you to
recommend in Miami to get an international health certificate for a dog? We are waiting in Miami for a weather window. Already have the Bahamas permit.

Last time I needed one in Miami just looked one up in the yellow pages, nowadays I'd search Google.
Any of them can do it, bring records from your regular vet.

You don't need an international health certificate for the Bahamas. You just need the permit they send you and the vet to sign the form that is sent with the permit.
