Requirements in Traveling with your Dog or Cat by Ferry/Ship in the Philippines
Where to get the Permit to Travel (Permit for Local Shipment of Animals)?
You can get it in the Department of Agriculture (DA) particularly in the Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) office. The BAI office is under the management of the Department of Agriculture. The BAI office is usually located near the DA office. If you don't know where the DA or BAI office is, you can ask your neighbors or friends. They're willing to give you answers.
What are the requirements in order to get a Permit to Travel for your Dog or Cat?
Is there any charge/fee in getting a Permit to Travel?
No. It's free of charge. Some BAI office have donation box. You can offer a donation (any amount) if you like. But I suggest it's better to give than to receive. Be kind to the BAI office for the free service.
Traveling by 2GO Travel Ferry/Ship
2GO's policy for Pets is:
So it's required that you should have a cage for your pet. This is to protect other people from any bites or any harm that the pet may cause. Quarantine certificates refer to the Permit to Travel and the Rabies Vaccination/Immunization Certificate. You also have to pay a bill of lading for your pet. For dogs/cats, it usually cost Php 150 as of this date.
Your pet will be treated as a cargo. So, it will be placed in the cargo area particularly in an open place where you can easily see it. You are allowed to feed or visit it anytime you want.
Based on my personal experience, 2GO staff will place your pet in safe place where you can easily visit it. 2GO have the responsibility of your pet because you pay for the bill of lading. If it's lost, then they will pay for it.
Traveling by Cokaliong Ship
Based also on my personal experience, Cokaliong also requires the cage, the Permit to Travel and the Rabies Vaccination Certificate.
Cokaliong staff was very accommodating. They allow us to have our dog (which was inside the cage) be placed near our bed. We were in the Economy Accommodation. And only a few passengers are there. Some passengers were very friendly with our dog. We even let the dog out of the cage.
