We moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand about 8 months ago. We had an awfully hard time getting straight answers about shipping our cat to Thailand. We decided to write an in depth post that should prove helpful for anyone that wants a one stop place to prepare themselves and their pet for airline travel.
Make sure you try to lock down a solid travel date 2 months in advance to allow you time to take care of all of the required tasks.
We link to official forms, include important contact info, required exams, vaccinations, and preferred airlines, as well as pet friendly hotels. Hopefully this helps prospective expats out there. If you have any questions at all post here or comment on the post and we will be more than happy to help. We have been there before and know what you are going through! Best of luck

Glad you found that it wasn't a wast of time to troll me though.

Wasn't a troll. Cheaper and common sense to get a cat in Thailand.

Hey Chris & Angela,
Thanks for the article. The information on shipping a pet should be helpful for the folks visiting this site who are considering long-term travel or retirement in Thailand. Like you said, it is a difficult decision, and you have to weigh the financial costs against the difficulty of saying goodbye to a pet and placing them in a good home.
Looks like you two are ready to have a bit of fun. Please be sure to post every so often about what you are up to, and include restaurant and hotel reviews too for the places you visit. Good luck! Cheers.
Absolutely! Thank you for the kind words. We will definitely be contributing as much as we can. We have been living in and traveling around Thailand for eight months now and are enjoying every moment in our new home. Take care.
