If your travel plans are international, the situation is more complex than for domestic travel. It is important to know the regulations of your destination country on the importation of birds, as well as U.S. regulations that may require quarantining your bird upon your return.

An excellent source of information on the rules of the international transport of animals, including birds, can be found on the Web site of the United States Department of Agriculture.

It's a good idea to check with the consulate of any foreign country to which you will be traveling with your bird so that you can be sure you have the most up-to-date information. The U.S. State Department maintains a list of foreign consulates on its Web site.

Information on the European Union (EU) rules for the importation of pets can be found here.
