Exporting Pets from Japan
The Japanese Animal Quarantine Service (AQS) is the official source of information regarding the import and export of pets in Japan. Please visit their very helpful English website.
It is imperative that persons who wish to export their pet from Japan consult the AQS website and make the proper coordination directly with the AQS in order to avoid any misunderstandings. The personnel in AQS have proved to be very helpful and they encourage direct communication through their website.
