Hi-We hope to move to Bonaire in about a year and a half-yippee!!Bringing our precious cats with us-does anyone know how close to entering Bonaire must the vaccinations be done?-2 months prior, that year, etc?? Want to make sure we don't slip up on this-do we need vet records? Also looking for oceanfront house if anyone has any ideas-we will be there Nov 8-11 for short visit-staying at Bellafonte. Thanks for the advice on the kitties.

No more than 30 days prior is highly recommended.

Just get a letter from your vet saying when they had their current shots and that they are healthy within 30 days of travel. No need for extra shots.

Following is information I shared with the Browns recently based on my departure from MN with a cat and bird. It was my understanding that the pets must be accompanied by the appropriate USDA health certificate or the airlines could deny transport. Also, you must have these documents for re-entry for US origin pets.
