I will be moving to Delhi in October and wanted to bring my feline friend with me. I myself will be going on a tourist visa but my girlfriend has a 3 year work contract so she will be bringing the cat for all intensive purposes. I have some questions that I'am having a hard time getting answers to and was hoping someone here might have current information.

Transfer of residency - Where do we apply or obtain this form/certificate? I understand with the new law this is a requirement but cannot find out where or whom we get it from.

NOC - If we bring him with us on the flight do we still need to have someone in Delhi apply for this form ahead of time? I have talked with a pet relocation service but they want $800 upfront and I would prefer to do as much of this myself and save the money.

Veterinary Certificate endorsement by the USDA - Is this a form I can print out and have my vet fill out or is it something the vet should provide?

Rabies vaccination certificate - Is this just something your vet prints out with the animals name that says he is current? Or is there a official form?

Would buying this package be useful? http://www.pettravelstore.com/pet-passport-india/

Thanks for any input you might have.

Cats are not considered cuddly pets in India and for most people in India cats are wild animals and your cat will have a tough time dealing with other wild street cats and stray street dogs (unless you are planning to keep your cat locked inside the house all the time).

Just not a good idea to put your cat through all the travel and to move to a new hostile territory.

For transfer of residency, check this site.

I am hoping you can find your answers in the old thread or the other pet related news site

And please make sure you cat will be comfortable in the indian weather conditions. You can get historical Delhi temperatures by searching the web.
