I can only tell you about the BVIs, but we feel this is the strictest in the Caribbean
and hope not to have a problem down island. We successfully brought our two cats into the BVIs from Puerto Rico
via the USA and had no problems. However, we contacted the Dept. of Agriculture in the BVIs prior to our arrival to get the requirements/forms for importing an animal into the country and submitted them for approval prior to arriving.
I did think it was interesting when we arrived that we were asked to bring the cats ashore for inspection
rather than the official coming to the boat
. I'm not sure the cats fully enjoyed their first dingy ride, or their first encounter with chickens (almost as big as them), or the pelican that scared the sh!! out of them as it dive bombed into the water
about four feet away as we were walking down the dinghy dock
to go back to the boat! But the BVI
official was great and very friendly.
I will let you know how it goes as we move down island this summer.
