All the requirements and necessary information for exporting dogs, cats and ferrets to Sint Maarten are available on Sint Maarten's Ministry of Tourism, Economic Affairs, Transport and Telecommunication – Inspectorate TEATT website. If you want to export a dog, cat or ferret from Canada to Sint Maarten you must comply with all of Sint Maarten's requirements.

This information is applicable to dog, cat and ferret travel to Sint Maarten, an autonomous country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. If you are travelling onwards to Saint-Martin, the French portion of the island, you will be required to contact the appropriate authorities in Saint-Martin to determine if additional certification and requirements apply to your situation.

You will be required to have a valid original Veterinary Health Certificate for Export of Dogs, Cats and Ferrets to Sint Maarten completed by a licensed veterinarian and then endorsed by a Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) Official Veterinarian prior to travel.

You must also obtain an Import Permit from Sint Maarten prior to travelling with your dog, cat or ferret.

Please note that Sint Maarten may change these import requirements without notification to the CFIA. As a result, it is strongly advised to review this export certificate against the import permit to ensure that all requirements are addressed.

If you have any questions about the information on this page, please contact the CFIA Animal Health Office in your area.
