Hi there, I brought my cat into Chengdu from the UK (via Amsterdam) and it was really simple to bring him in. It is 30 days home quarantine with one trip (within 48 hrs of arrival) to the Pet registration place - they give you the address at the animal and plant customs desk at the airport. I think it cost about 25 rmb to register him. Word of warning... they put the pets on the luggage carousel and you collect them from there!
I found this page and got one of my Chinese colleagues to call the helpline number (they ended up calling 2 or 3 places!) They told me all the docs that were required to bring my cat in. They can confirm about the visa requirement too.
I needed proof of up to date vaccinations, rabies was the most important. The rabies injection must be given at least 30 days before travel - at least this was what it was for the cat. You also need a health certificate (fit to fly) signed and stamped by a vet in your home country. Your dog will also probably need to be microchipped - I guess. Although this isn't a requirement to come into China but more for when you return back home. It is worth checking with your government pet travel dept. The UK version is DEFRA and the website was very helpful.
Make sure you have at least 3 copies of everything, including your passport and home address in Chengdu. I had to give a copy to the desk at the airport and another copy to the quarantine bureau place we went to a few days after arriving. If your pet is going in the hold I would put a attach a copy to the crate and also put one in the crate too.
Oh and I didn't have to pay any import fee at the airport which I had previously read about on the many forums I read trying to find information. The only money I paid was about 30rmb to register at the quarantine bureau.
Hope this helps!
I brought my cat here from the UK in Feb and it was much easier than I thought it was going to be. I didn't use an agency and just paid excess baggage (he went in the hold). You need to have a Z visa as you can't bring a pet in on a tourist visa. You need to arrive directly into Chengdu and not another Chinese city otherwise quarantine takes place there. In Chengdu the quarantine is 30 days at home (at least it was for my cat). After immigration at the airport I collected the cat from the baggage belt and went to the animal import desk next to the exit and filled in a form with my name and passport info. They gave me the address of the bureau to go to in the first week of being in Chengdu (you have to register the pet otherwise you can't take them back out of China) and told me to keep the cat indoors for 30 days.
The next problem is getting him out of here... I think I will need an agency to do this as the UK has certain rules about bringing pets back in from China and it will probably cost me around 30,000RMB. I am hoping the rules change before I leave!
Any other questions just ask. I also sat next to a guy on my flight who had brought his dog from San Francisco to Shanghai and apparently they have special (secret) cameras on the flight if your pet is in the hold so if you are freaking out you can check on them. I just knocked myself out with alcohol ;0)
I am in the process of bringing my cat to Chengdu from the UK - any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am going back to the UK to bring him back here with me in Feb. I have been told that as we're flying into Chengdu directly that he will be able to have home quarantine. Anyone brought a pet into China and had any issues?
