What would be approximate cost of airline ticket, and other procedure, like tests, vet certificate etc. of bringing a Dog to India. I also want to know the same for a Cat and a Mouse, which are much smaller than the dog. But please mention airline ticket and other costs separately.
Also, the dog, cat and the mouse dont receive any shots regularly. Though they are healthy. Would that be a problem, eg. do they ask for history of shots received by the animal etc.?
Thank you!

Are you moving to India? Is that why you want to bring all your pets with you? If you are coming as a tourist, you will not want to bring all your pets as you won't be able to travel around with them very easily. What country are you coming from?

Here is another useful link. http://www.chrisandcin.com/wp-conten.../india-new.pdf You will see on that form that only dogs, cats and some birds are considered pets. You cannot bring in a mouse, they are not considered pets.

The cost for a dog to bring them in is about $500. You have to hire a local (Indian) company who does the paperwork required on that end to receive something called a No Objection Certificate-- NOC. You cannot enter India without it.

You got to be kidding, a mouse? But one word of advice, (sorry to those whom I may offend) don't fly with Air India. After talking with the representatives there, I can tell you that they don't care if your dog lives or dies. At the time British Air was really careful about transporting animals. The thing you want to watch for is travelling during the hot season. Make sure the airlines say they keep the hold (your dog goes with the luggage) at the right temperature. The Indian authorities will want more paperwork on your dog than they want on you, but then our agents didn't even read our papers when we came through. Make sure that your dog is used to being in a crate. I had to teach mine to feel comfortable in one six months before we left. Basically, I did it by having her food there.

vegeta,
You are in India already, right? So where are the dog and the cat and the mouse flying from and what is their destination?

I want my friend to come here and also her pets. But it seems to be such a big deal. Its the same planet, so why so much trouble? It seems like countries dont want people to come inside their borders. I hate these countries

Its not about getting a new mouse here. When you get attached with your mouse, you dont want to replace it.
Yes, Air India is a real mess. I have heard of many complaints about it. Also, I couldnt believe when I checked its fair from India to USA. It exceeded by more than 50% from any other flight. I dont know about its current fairs. I checked it a few years ago. But they sure dont have any management.

I generally feel that moving animals around by air should be avoided --- but I doubt that the mouse could survive. These small animals can easily die of fright/stress.

By the way: you have huge issues in bringing your friend here: don't you think you ought to take this one step at a time?

obione980... No, see his other thread. Not a troll, just a guy trying to do something that probably won't work out.

No they don't. It is to do with politics and economics as well as other stuff. Try moving to USA or Europe. Sorry, but this is how it is in the real world, and countries do have an absolute right to impose such restrictions: it's called sovereignty.

And ain't that the truth! Sorry - I'm a somewhat cynical septuagenerian - and it seems to me that despite the best of intentions Vegeta is doomed to failure - and probably that's best for his disabled friend. Disablement and India do not 'gel' normally. His friend is sure to be better off staying in the US! IMHO.

vegeta I think you're willingness to undertake the care of a 52 y.o. mentally disabled friend is extremely unwise. I can't even imagine how she became your friend if she's old enough to be your grandmother.

If she has never been to India, she will hate it. If she loves India & knows it and you well, how can you devote yourself to someone like this and have a normal life?

If she lives in the U.S. and is unhappy there, why do you think you can "fix" her? It isn't easy to get disability at 52 unless you have very serious problems. She might lose the disability payment if she comes to stay with you (unlike regular Social Security which you get at 62 earliest and you cannot lose where ever you live in the world).

If this is some kind of intense internet relationship, you are making a very, very big mistake to get involved.

I agree with obione, she'd be much better off staying in the U.S. and so would you.

If you want to have her come for a tryout stay for a couple of months, she can come with a tourist visa. See how it goes. Don't commitment yourself for her lifetime when there's no chance she will ever be able to live in India unless she married an Indian.

Pets are the smallest problem.

Ahh... the wider issues, and the story behind it. Have to admit my curiosity too, but figured that if vegata wanted to tell personal stuff, then he would.

But could she live in India? Would she be happy? There are many very practical questions.

"Pes" --- Camelgirl?
