PCS'ing with Pets: Covid-19 Updates and Guidance

PCS'ing with Pets: Covid-19 Updates and Guidance

by Staff Sgt. Emili Koonce

Summer PCS season is upon us! Travelling with your family pets can seem daunting, but your local Public Health Activity-Japan veterinary clinic is here to help. Take note of the following information for Air Mobility Command Patriot Express flights, then work with your local travel office and military veterinary clinic to ensure a smooth and safe trip for your whole family. Please contact commercial airlines directly for pet travel information during this time of frequent change. Upon arrival to Japan, pets must initiate their animal quarantine process. Additionally, pet owners conducting ROM must contact their local military veterinary clinic with 72 hours (of their arrival to Japan) to conduct a pet health and quarantine screening over the phone. Do not physically report to the vet's office if under ROM orders.
