New Resource: Understanding The Basics of CDC’s New Rules for Importing a Dog From a ‘High-Risk’ Country (New Graphic)
June 1, 2022 by AKC Government Relations

Today, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officially announced an extension and modification of the July 2021 temporary suspension of the importation of dogs from countries classified as high risk for canine rabies (CRVV). 

Effective June 10, the CDC will allow for more dogs from countries classified as “high-risk” for canine rabies (CRVV)  to be imported into the United States, using specific, risk-based criteria. 

The new rules provide multiple options for individuals seeking to import a dog, based on a dog’s titer status, vaccination status and the number of dogs being imported by the individual. 

AKC GR has prepared a summary informational flowchart to help you understand some of the basic requirements for importing a dog from a high-risk country.
