For the majority of countries, once your International Health Certificate is completed by a USDA accredited veterinarian, it must then be endorsed by the USDA State Veterinarian. If mailing, keep federal holidays in mind as they could affect the endorsement timeline.
This can be completed by one of two methods:
- In person, by appointment in Richmond, VA (no walk-ins)
- Mailed overnight to the USDA office in Albany, NY (preferred method)
We wish you the best of luck with your upcoming travel and look forward to seeing you soon!
