How to Get Dog Permit To Travel in Cebu, Philippines

If you travel with your dog by sea (ship, ferry boat) or air (plane), the authorities in the ship or plane will require you to bring a Permit to Travel/Transport of your dog. Without the permit, your dog is not allowed to be transported. So, you must get this permit to avoid inconvenience. Here's a short procedure on how to get a Permit to Travel for dogs in Cebu-Philippines.
1. First, it is required that your dog has an anti-rabies certificate or vaccination certificate. It means that your dog is vaccinated with anti-rabies from a certified veterinarian or from the officials of the City/Municipal Agriculture Office.
Sample of Vaccination Certificate:
Dog Vaccination
Dog Vaccination Certificate 2
2. Go to the Bureau of Quarantine (located near Pier 1 - Cebu City) and bring the anti-rabies certificate. If it's your first time to go to the said office, just ask someone in Pier 1 where is the Bureau of Quarantine located.
3. In the Bureau of Quarantine office, request a Permit to Travel. Requesting or getting the permit is free of charge. If you have a big heart, donations are accepted.
Are you having a problem getting a Permit to Travel for your dog(s)?

i"ll travel to Bohol with my dog probably tomorrow, my question is, does travel permit has expiry date? because i'm planning to stay in Bohol until April 1. And is bureau of Quarantine open on holidays and weekend?

The correct number for Animal Quarantine is 255-0640. Please do not call 232-2072 or 233-4283 because that number is for Human Quarantine
