Island Pet Movers makes the customs clearance process for your pet's arrival to the USA easy and stress-free - we have a couple of different fees which will vary by type of pets and your flight's arrival time.
Nearly all airlines are also now charging an import fee at the time of pickup - you can pay this fee at the time of pickup for your pet, or we can pay this for you in advance. Some airlines require you to pay with cash, others only credit card. If you pay this fee on your own - be prepared to have both forms of payment available.
In order to keep our rates low as possible, we do not have phone support for non clients - however, once you are working with us, you will have a direct representative phone contact and access to our Island Pet Movers app.
Our fees are as follows:
For arriving during normal customs clearance hours - up to 3:30 PM Monday through Friday:
For family pets - $160.00
- a family pet is a pet that an owner can prove prior ownership such as vet records.
Newly purchased puppy or kitten - $180.00
with an invoice valued at $2400 or less - customs can and often will, ask for banking details to show proof of this financial transaction to ensure the proper clearance is being entered.
Newly purchased Puppies or Kittens invoice value over $2400 - $230.00
**OVERTIME FEE FOR ALL PETS** Arrivals after 3:30 pm will be an additional customs overtime of $100.
